South Coast


Off the South coast of Mozambique, Benguerra Island is one of the 5 islands that make up the Bazaruto Archipelago. Benguerra is approximately 11 kms by 5 kms in size and is made up of forest, savannah and wetland eco-systems which sustain a diverse population of flora and fauna. It was consequently declared a National Park in 1971.

Some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in the world is available off Benguerra's shores with the surrounding coral reefs rich in sea life. It is famous for its unspoiled white beaches, remarkable dive sites and excellent fishing (subject to a strict 'catch and release' policy).  The archipelago is one of the last remaining habitats of the endangered Dugong: a pale, voluptuous sea mammal fabled to have made bygone mariners believe in mermaids.
