The Bazaruto Archipelago much of which is a national marine park is a diver’s paradise where you can still dive with the Doogong. With its turquoise and jade waters, pristine coral reef and white sand dunes the description in Lonely Planet Africa really describes this area very well. Inhassoro is overlooking Paradise Island and is a small coastal village that is clean and welcoming and one feel really safe. The place to camp is Goody Villas. Beautiful with well kept lawns to pitch your tent, private modern and clean ablution facilities overlooking the said turquoise and jade waters. The sand though at this time of the year is covered with grass that the tide brings out from the grass beds where the Doogongs feed. One of the few areas where there are still feeding grounds for them.
The inhabitants are super friendly, do not bother you or try to sell things but very helpful. At the Internet office the guy went to call his Egyptian mother to talk to us about Egypt and Sharm el Sheikh, where she worked before marrying a Mozambican. She wrote down her sister’s contact information for us to contact for whatever we want when we reach Cairo where she stays. When we said goodbye she insisted on giving her nephew’s contact information as well.
Sunrise from our tent
We had this again, all for ourselves
We walked for hours on the beach, eat funny colourfull crayfish with ugly spidery legs and a Parrot fish and collected more shells. We will most definitely come back again to Inhassoro.
