Situated just off the main land about 750km north of Maputo are the islands of Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque and Santa Carolina (Paradise Island) making up the Bazaruto Archipelago. Declared a national park in 1971, the archipelago boasts among its wildlife 180 species of birds, endemic butterflies, Suni antelope and freshwater crocodile. The protected reefs and beaches support dolphin, dugong, game fish, giant lobster and several species of marine turtle. These combinations make for a diverse and unique ecosystem. The Archipelago is not the ideal location for those whose idea of a holiday is shopping as there are no shops, roads, or vehicles, just crystal clear water and squeaky white beaches.

Villanculos - the main land town servicing the island can be reached on tar roads. Access to the islands from the mainland is by boat or light aircraft transfer, depending on which resort you are travelling to.
There are flights from Johannesburg to Vilanculos on LAM daily.

There are a huge variety of activities on offer at the island lodges. Fishing of all kinds is popular and a catch, photograph and release policy is encouraged. Diving on the many stunning reefs including an introductory talk and slide show on the corals to encourage conservation. Sailing safaris to outlying reefs or islands on a catamaran or take a hobie cat, wind surfer or paddle ski for a shorter excursion. There is also water skiing and paragliding. A sunset dhow trips is a beautiful way to the end the day in peace watching out for flamingos, dolphins, dugong and whales.
There are interesting walking trails on all of the islands leading visitors to the mangrove community, freshwater lakes and turtle nests. Bird watching during these walks can produce many interesting species there are over 115 different varieties. On Bazarutogo and see the centennial lighthouse, on Margaruque the ruined 19th century fort and on Benguerra take a tour round a local village with the chief and herbalist.
