Just a happy guy who loves travelling, loves Africa and feels that travelling changes you forever.


The Bazaruto Archipelago is Mozambique’s leading tourist destination. It is a guarded area containing spectacular sea life, with snorkelling in the reefs being one of the finest ways to enjoy it. En route to Vilanculos we will make a stop at a local craft market to shop for souvenirs and curios.

Vilanculos is a coastal town located in Mozambique, situated in the Vilanculos District in the province of Inambane. Vilanculos was named after gamala Vilankulo Mukoke, a local tribal chief, and some of the suburbs (bairros) are named after his sons. The town has been developing rapidly over the past decade and has received large amounts of investment into its tourism infrastructure. It is the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago and dhows (local boats) often journey between the town and the Archipelago. The town itself is only 5 kilometres in length and contains various market, shops and other conveniences.
