Bazaruto Island Packages – Explore the Famous Bazaruto Archipelago National Park

The sought after Bazaruto Archipelago is a diver’s delight and deep-sea fishing gold mine. You may find some of the last dugongs grazing on the seabed. Or a family of dolphins going by. This diving hotspot is also renowned for its manta rays, leatherback, loggerhead and green turtles. Turtles are protected in Mozambique so book your trip during their breeding season between December and March.

Honeymoon couples will revel in a getaway to Bazaruto Lodge Mozambique within the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park. This protected marine area baosts diverse fauna and flora, enthralling guests who love getting away into nature for an energy-boosting holiday break. Settle into the tranquil rhythm of life on an island untouched by modernity yet still offering guests a pampered relaxing dream come true.

If you don’t know it yet, Bazaruto Island is renowned for its natural beauty, the largest island floating within the park. This archipelago of six islands off the Mozambican coast between Vilanculos and Inhassoro was especially created in 1971 to protect dugongs, marine turtles, and their habitats. The islands are all rich in coral reefs and marine birds and include Benguerra, Margaruque, Santa Caroline (Paradise Island), Banque and Pansy Shell Island. 

The islands are a nature-lover’s paradise with their warm tropical weather, huge dunes, lush coastal forests, grasslands, inland lakes and wetlands. Home to several endemic reptiles and vital flocks of Palaearctic migrant water birds, tourists come here to see these natural wonders and to diving or snorkel. They come to ogle the rich variety of marine life: humpback whales, marine turtles, spinner, humpback and bottlenose dolphins, marlins and barracudas. 

To crown it all, this marine national park protects the largest and only remaining viable population of dugongs in the Western Indian Ocean. The varied coral reefs are said to be the least disturbed in this part of the ocean.

Your holiday in this dreamy nature park makes unforgettable memories.  Leave nothing but your footprints, take nothing but photographs. Bazaruto Lodge is the perfect place to absorb all of this, to immerse yourself in clean ocean waters and to learn something new every day about life in Mozambique.
