  • Kanoe & Dhow Trip in Inhambane Bay

    Inhambane Things to Do

    Wonderful, relaxing and not necessarily reserved for athletes ... and you can also request a visit to the peninsula Mocucune, chasing a chicken for the grill and drink a traditional beer. In short, it's new, local, professional, and it seems that Water Sports 969s'engage in a draft eco-tourism.

  • NICE EXCEPT THE PRICE (AND THE SERVICE!)

    Praia do Tofo Restaurants

    I really wanted to eat here. Twice. The first time was at lunch, but they ran out of food. The second time was at night but they had too many people. Rather than make us feel welcome or suggest we get some drinks, the staff made us feel in the way. In fact they made sure to let us know they did not want us there. Too bad. The food looked wonderful...

Ilha do Bazaruto

  • Flights to Bazaruto

    Ilha do Bazaruto Transportation

    Please be aware that the flights to and from Bazaruto really are by light aircraft and therefor the luggage weight restriction is imposed quite strictly. I believe it is possible to leave belongings in hotels from where you may have come from, an enquiry might be worthwhile.Soft bags are encouraged also.

  • Junior the taxi driver

    Vilankulo Transportation

    The only official taxi driver in Vilankulo is called Junior. Be careful with him, because he tries to get as much money as possible from you. Allways negotiate the price before getting in the car and make sure that the price is still same when you arrive! Try to ask other transportation options from your accommodation or from staff and use those if...

Worth every penny - I ended up riding nearly every day the views were awesome across the bay. The horses were really great. Have loved Vilanculos - the best place i...

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While driving on the N1 road and passing through Quissico, we suddenly felt the urge for a stop only for better appreciation of the landscape that was being seen from the car. Those were the Quissico Lagoons. Very pretty I should say. Too bad these pictures here (on this tip) do not pay enough justice on how beautiful these lagoons are.

    - MF in Quissico, May 2009.
