Apart from the odd luxury lodge dotted amongst the islands,
there is nothing much to disturb the serene beauty of the Bazaruto
Archipelago. And on the subject of the lodges, we at Original
Travel have been lucky enough to visit them all, and the overall
standard is right up there with the very best beach lodges
Offshore, the fertile waters are home to an abundance of life
providing superb diving and snorkelling opportunities and some of
the best salt water fly-fishing and deep-sea fishing in the world.
On most days you should see shoals of dolphin feeding off the
endless supply of fish, and if you are lucky you may see a rare
dugong or humpback whales and whale sharks migrating along the
Mozambique Channel between the mainland and Madagascar.
With over 150 species of birds, the Bazaruto Archipelago is also
a haven for twitchers, and at certain times of year you are likely
to be sharing the beach with flocks of flamingos. Other activities
include island hopping, visits to turtle nesting grounds, beach
walks, and horse riding.
