Diving & Snorkeling

Snorkelling at Ibo|Snorkelling at Ibo IslandDiving in Mozambique is extraordinary. No matter how beautiful, images cannot capture the splendor of Mozambique’s marine life. You simply must come and see it for yourself. The country’s 2,500 kilometer coast line is dotted with pristine coral reefs and its year round warm waters make Mozambique an ideal location for diving. Additionally, many professional dive schools, most of which are PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) affiliated are found along these waters. These diving centers frequent a wide variety of diving sites to suit all types of divers. But what makes diving in Mozambique special is its marine biodiversity combined the fact that it is not over run with divers. Divers in Mozambique have chances to encounter blacktip and whitetip sharks, blue spotted stingray, and electric rays which are common in the Indian Ocean’s blue waters. Iridescent corals and nudibranchs, seahorses, pipefish and giant clams, sea turtles and much more wait to be discovered by you in Mozambique. Learn more

Maputo City

Maputo skyline|The skyline of Maputo CityMaputo’s History is as colorful as the capulanas favored by its residents. Half a millennia ago Portuguese explorers discovered a bay shared between African Elephants and a people called Ronga, ruled by their King Maputa. The Portuguese named it Baía da Lagoa (Delagoa Bay) and established Lourenço Marques. Today Delagoa Bay is the Bay of Maputo and Lourenço Marques is Maputo.  It's interesting to note that many of Chief Maputa's descendants live in the city of Maputo and the local elephant population thrives in the Maputo Special Reserve  on the Bay of Maputo.

A mosaic of ecosystems offer the traveller striking views of natural scenery, rare opportunities to observe wildlife in genuinely unspoiled settings and- with over 400 species- some of Southern Africa’s most rewarding birding. As its wildlife population has risen from the ashes of the civil war in Mozambique, Gorongosa National Park enjoys the status of a favoured filming location for National Geographic documentaries. It was here where the award winning “Africa’s Lost Eden” was filmed in 2009, and “War Elephants”, featuring Joyce Pool interacting with Gorongosa’s elephants premiers this year.

Gorongosa’s habitats includes stunning Fever Tree forests, Ilala Palm forests, Acacia and Miombo woodlands, Riparian and Lake shore, striking floodplains and the rain forest on Mount Gorongosa. Learn more

 

Inhaca Beach Trip

Town center|The roads in Inhaca's sleepy town center are very quietWhy not drop in on an Island or two during your stay in Maputo? Ideal for a day's escape from busy Maputo, Inhaca Island is just 30 kilometers east of the capital city across the Bay of Maputo. Departure time is 07:30 and do take your sun screen and a hat! Wear sandals, because you will wade the last few meters from the boat to the beach of Inhaca Island. Your day tour to Inhaca includes a tasty lunch served at a local restaurant. While on the island, you'll have a chance to explore the local curio market and then dip your toes again before leaving the island at 15:00.

If your group would like to snorkel, we can organize at the time of your booking an additional excursion from Inhaca to the Coral Gardens, where you will have approximately 30-45 minutes of snorkeling time before returning back to Inhaca for the transfer to Maputo. Learn more
