Imagine swimming with whales, swimming with whale sharks and oceanic manta rays, exploring untouched coral reefs teeming with marine life, and in the same trip, being able to see one of the most complicated marine animals, the dugong!
We present you the programme where we combine two nearby dive destinations, Praia do Tofo and the Bazaruto Archipelago, near Vilanculos... The programme can be started with one destination or the other. The distance between the two destinations is approximately 4 hours by road.
Where to fly
We recommend flying 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, and the same flight also goes to Vilanculos.
Optionally you can also fly to Johannesburg in South Africa and take a flight to Vilanculos with LAM or CemAir. In this case we recommend to start the programme at this destination and then head south to Praia do Tofo.
We can also pick you up at Maputo airport, bearing in mind that it is an 8-hour drive to Praia do Tofo.
We can adjust the itinerary according to your flexibility and preferences.
From your arrival in Africa until your departure, we will always be by your side to accompany you in this experience.
