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

Vilanculos, Mozambique

En route to Vilanculos we will make a stop at a local craft market to shop for souvenirs and curios. Upon arrival you will be briefed on the following days excursion. The Bazaruto Archipelago is Mozambique’s leading tourist destination. It is a guarded area containing spectacular sea life, with snorkeling in the reefs being one of the finest ways to enjoy it. If you are looking for a good adventure, your guide could arrange one of the popular Dhow ferries to take you sailing across the bay. For those wanting to remain behind, you could join the trip to Maxixe on the far end of the bay.

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 developed rapidly over the past decade and has received large amounts of investment into it’s 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.
