"We arrived at these beaches, explored what was under the surface of the sea, and we fell in love at once. In few places have we seen so much quantity, such diversity and size of marine species! More than a decade later, Praia do Tofo is still a virgin destination like few others." - The team
Whale sharks, reef and oceanic sharks, rays of all species and sizes, countless tropical and subtropical species, and during the winter months, humpback whales.
This is the program we recommend to get to know the seabed of this corner of Mozambique.
Where to fly
We recommend you to fly to Maputo, with the airlines TAP, Emirates, Qatar, or Turkish. Once in Mozambique, the local airline Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM) has an internal flight to Inhambane, located 23 km from Praia do Tofo.
Optionally you can also fly to Johannesburg, South Africa, and take a flight with LAM or CemAir to Vilanculos, located about 4 hours north of Praia do Tofo where we can pick you up.
We can also pick you up at Maputo airport, keeping in mind that it is an 8 hour drive to Praia do Tofo.
For the return flight we recommend the internal LAM flight from Inhambane to Maputo, where you will spend one last night before flying to your destination of origin.
From your arrival in Africa until your departure, we will always be by your side to accompany you in this experience.
