Swimming with dolphins, whale sharks, spectacular scuba diving, horse riding safaris, windsurfing, kitesurfing and regular-old-surfing, visitors can forget about lazing about in Mozambique unless, of course, they really want to.

Wild, wilder Mozambique
Go wild, literally, in the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, a reserve comprising five islands. Fish eagles, flamingos, crocodiles and dolphins live here alongside more than 2,000 other known fish species. If you are lucky, you could spot a dugong (a relative of the sea cow) which can weigh up to 400 kilograms. There are several historical sites within the park, including the Bazaruto lighthouse. The area is accessible to vehicles with four-wheel drive capabilities, or hike from Pestana Bazaruto Lodge. Ponta Dundo is one of the most significant historical sites in the Bazaruto Archipelago, while Santa Carolina is described as one of the most beautiful islands, with an old hotel and other relics telling the story of Bazaruto and its people.
The best of both worlds
