Honeymoon packages, family holidays and diving specials all start in Vilankulo town, the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique. See how life has not changed for centuries – local fishermen still fish with nets at the edge of the sea and farmers still grow cashew nuts near their rural thatched villages.

Culture in a Name

This Mozambique tourist region boasts a new international airport and is part of the wonderful coastline of Inhambane. Did you know that Vilankulo is named after local tribal chief Gamala Vilankulo Mukoke and today the district is called Vilanculos and the town Vilankulo?

You will be fascinated by the traditional lifestyle here – local people deliver their own home-grown vegetables and fruits and fish to the lodges within the Vilanculos National Park. And you can find excellent accommodation in the diverse choice of camping, backpacking, B&B, self-catering, lodges, resorts and luxurious hotels.

Dhows, White Beaches & Big Game Fishing

Watch dhows travelling between this port and the islands all day and stroll around the numerous local markets to buy fresh fish or other necessities. Vilanculos is known for its fantastic white beaches, coconut palms, clear azure ocean, warm weather and island-style adventure and pampering atmosphere.

Sample some of Mozambique’s Portuguese food – sumptuous and exciting, making eating out a pleasure. Try out new water activities including fishing for marlin and other game fish, snorkelling, diving, kite surfing and swimming all day long.
