    L. Vilanculos Restaurants

    If you are tired of your resort food, this is a nice place to sit around have some beer and something to eat. The way they put the chairs to the table when nobody is sitting on them makes the place look like beeing closed, its usualy not! I had a grilled Fish. Between (town) bus station and market.

    Inhabame is a quite nice daytrip, particular in a not so nice day but also for some shopping (exept off touristic things like wooden elefants, painted sunsets, sunglasses etc. there is not much to buy in Tofo).

    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...

  • 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.

    Inharrime Warnings and Dangers

    Apparently the lakes in the area have a heavy mineral/sulphur content that makes the water more placid and produces the incredible mirror effects. It also makes one hell of a stink if you disturb the water. So if you stop for a close look or a pee, stay clear!

  • The Inharrime Lake

    Inharrime Things to Do

    Located by EN1 off Quissico when driving north. We were lucky the sunny day that allowed just to produce some very nice shots.The road goes by the lake. We also felt the urge for a quick stop for picture shots. You have to see the video my friend Marco produced at the Inharrime Lake. - MF in Inharrime, May 2009.

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.

  • The police

    Ilha do Bazaruto Tourist Traps

    If you are driving and they see you they will probably pull you over...They are big on bribes and if you havent done anything wrong they will look for a problem whether inside or outside of your vehicle and if the cant find anything then they are still going to ask you for a bribe!!!! Or some money, openly admiting to wanting some money for beer......

    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...

  • Horse Riding

    Vilankulo Things to Do

    I highly recommend going for a ride at Mozambique Horse Safari in Vilanculos. I went and had such a fun time. The people who run it were brilliant - it was very organised and well run. 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...
