Where to stay in the Bazaruto Archipelago
Mozambique Travel offers bestselling holiday accommodation packages to the cream of the Mozambican island crop, the bountiful Bazaruto Archipelago, where resorts with names like Benguerra Retreats, Anantara and andBeyond Benguerra beckon.
Mozambique is indeed the land of milk and honey thanks to its glorious sunny and warm climate, its pristine white beaches and turquoise ocean waves – all essential ingredients for a successful holiday in a small string of robust islands renowned for their rich deep-sea diving, fishing, and rare assortment of marine species such as the endangered Dugong.
Ask the Mozambique specialists about the archipelago and its status as a premier National Marine Park hosting some of the richest and least explored subtropical ecosystems in the Indian Ocean. We know that only five magnificent and untouched islands in this chain range from the largest Bazaruto, ton Benguerra, Magaruque, Santa Carolina and lastly the tiny Bangue. Each retreat offers a choice of idyllic accommodation with awesome deals to keep all visitors coming back for more holidays of a lifetime!
While the mainland coastline stretches more than 2000 km between South Africa and Tanzania, promising legendary hotels and resorts for everyone’s budgets, Mozambique’s islands attract those who want more, the remote serenity of a tropical lifestyle for a while, the ultimate luxury beach and ocean vacation.
Diving to Meet the Rare Dugong
Diving with the critically endangered Dugongs in the awe-inspiring Bazaruto Archipelago Marine National Park is a lifetime experience. You can enjoy this unforgettable ocean activity from your designer beach villa on Bazaruto Island or from your lavish resort chalet on Benguerra Island.
Do it, take dive and boat trips to learn something new about the marine environment in which you holiday. Make as much difference as you can in your own way. Sustainable tourism is about the planet and people, an integrated relationship of survival for all.
These gracious sea cows are now so endangered that to see one or a few is magical.
