The Bazaruto Archipelago needs almost no introduction. No roads, no shops – this is paradise. With endless white beaches and tropical, azure waters, the four main islands with sandstone foundations surrounded by coral reefs, are almost in a world of their own. As the archipelago is a National Park, utmost care is taken to preserve the pristine environment & rich marine life. The islands are home to various species of dolphin, giant lobster, turtles and reportedly the last viable population of the endangered dugongs. Explore the ocean, snorkelling with the tropical fish, surfing, fishing or viewing the majestic Two Mile Coral Reef or just relax on the unspoilt beach and soak up the sun. With some of the finest luxury beach lodges in the world, the Bazaruto Archipelago offers the ultimate luxury beach paradise experience in Africa.

WHEN TO GO?

The Bazaruto Archipelago (and Mozambique as a whole) has a tropical climate, with the dry season primarily from April to September, when temperatures are usually a lovely 20°c, and October to March being the rainy season with higher temperatures of around 28°c. Due to heat and humidity we recommend visiting during the drier months, when days are dry and cooler, but if you’re an ocean-lover, diving is world-class throughout the year but whale sharks frequent the waters more in rainy season.

TOP ACTIVITIES

An ocean-lover’s paradise, the Bazaruto Archipelago offers outstanding scuba diving on its famous Two-Mile Reef, with a good chance of spotting whale sharks and a vast array of spectacular marine life. Snorkel, swim, relax and unwind on pristine white beaches. Pamper yourself in the comfort of your luxury beach lodge or villa. A holiday on the Bazaruto Archipelago is pure escapism and tranquil relaxation.

WHERE NEXT?

The Bazaruto Archipelago can be accessed directly from Johannesburg on an easy 2 hour flight, making it easy to combine with the ultimate Big 5 safari experience in Kruger National Park or some exciting city exploration in Cape Town. A few days of sea and sun on this idyllic island chain is the perfect way to round off a South African Safari. You can also fly directly from the Kruger National Park, making it possible for you to enjoy a Big 5 game drive in the morning, and watch the sunset of the Indian Ocean from your island beach in the evening!
