An archipelago made up of six islands
Considered one of the most beautiful corners of Africa, the Bazaruto Archipelago is a group of six islands that is located near the city of Vilankulo , in Mozambique. In addition to Bazaruto, the main island, it is made up of Benguerra, Magaruque, Banque, Santa Carolina, and Shell. In addition, the archipelago is made up of many other islets that in many cases are only seen at low tide. This natural wonder became a National Park in 1971 and has only grown in popularity ever since.
The great attraction of the Bazaruto Archipelago
As you may have imagined from the images that we have shown you so far (you can enjoy more photographs in our gallery), the great attraction of this archipelago is its coastline, where you can find truly paradisiacal beaches, with crystal clear waters, white sands and a tremendously rich seabed. The funny thing is that although the country was in a civil war for more than 16 years and was ravaged by severe floods in 2007, Bazaruto has remained isolated from the misfortunes. In addition, it is practically virgin despite already having numerous resorts and lodges. The good thing is that they have a sustainable spirit.
Activities to do in Bazaruto
One of the activities that you will like to do the most in this African paradise will be to bask in the sun while contemplating the landscape. However, you should know that here you can enjoy numerous activities . For example, both snorkeling and diving are tremendously worth it. In fact, the so-called Bazaruto Marine Park or Bazaruto National Park offers an important reserve in its 1,400 square kilometers. It is considered the largest in the entire Indian Ocean. In addition, you can practice deep sea fishing, water skiing, sailing and many other water sports.
Contemplating the fauna of the archipelago is, without a doubt, one of the best things you can do in this place. Among the animals that you will see are freshwater crocodiles, monkeys, mangrove crabs or small antelopes. As for birds, flamingos or eagles predominate, among many other species. Inside the sea you can see dolphins, sharks, rays, dugong turtles and, of course, humpback whales. Of course, if you want to bathe with the whale shark, which is the largest mammal on the planet, you must travel in the wet season, that is, from November to April.
