The Bazaruto Archipelago is situated 10 to 15 km offshore between Vilankulo and Inhassoro and consists of five islands; Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Santa Carolina and Bangue. These islands and surrounding waters constitute the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park.
Bazaruto is the largest island in the archipelago with towering dunes and islands lakes, frequented by water birds. The south point of the island, Ponta Dundo offers a spectacular view of the achipelago from the summit of the dunes.
Two-Mile Reef is situated off the eastern shoreline of Benguerra and offers great snorkeling and diving opportunities. Beautiful and diverse coral formations and thousands of tropical fishes from tiny clownfish to large wrasses and parrotfish can be found here. Moray eels, various rays and white-tip reef sharks can also be seen when scuba diving.
Sailaway provides all meals, juice, tea, coffee, drinking water and ice on safari.
Alcohol, carbonated drinks or spirits should be purchased in on the mainland before departure.
Bring sunscreen, a hat and warm clothing. There is dry storage for cameras and luggage on the dhow whilst on route. Don’t leave any valuables unattended on any isolated island beaches. Passports, valuables and excess luggage can be stored in the safe at the Sailaway office or the camp
Marine life is diverse and plentiful, home to many coral types and over 200 species of fish. We provide
snorkelling equipment, but if you need corrective lenses, please bring your own mask or contacts. Wear
a t-shirt whilst snorkelling in summer.
Snorkelling at the extreme south point of Bazaruto island is not recommended for beginners, as there
are strong currents there. Please inform the guide if you are a novice snorkeller or swimmer, as we have
life rings to assist you.
