Magical islands of Bazaruto, Mozambique

For every beaten track there are hundreds more not beaten at all.
Remote Places Photography will take you there.

Off the coastline and around the Bazaruto Archipelago, humpback whales breach offshore and whale sharks take shelter from the storms in the coral reefs and caves. The small, sandy islands are reachable from  Vilankulos. The archipelago is in a protected marine park and consists of five unique islands: Bazaruto; Benguerra and Magaruque, Santa Carolina and tiny Bangue.

Small antelope roam the islands alongside fresh-water crocodiles, mangrove crabs and samango monkeys while flamingo nest on the freshwater lakes. The islands are in fact home to over 240 varieties of birds including fish eagles, bee- eaters, harriers, ospreys and the elusive crab plover and green coucal. Bazaruto Marine Park now covers the entire Bazaruto Archipelago making this 1400 sq km reserve one of the largest in the Indian Ocean. In addition to humpback whales, dolphins, manta rays and five species of turtle, some 100 dugongs survive here – one of the very few viable populations on the East African coast.

Its not just beautiful on the eye….its beautiful on the taste buds too. Mozambique is justifiably famous in Africa for its cuisine. With its long coastline and rich fishing grounds, it’s no wonder that many of its famous dishes revolve around fresh seafood. The colonial history of the Portuguese is also seen in the use of spices such as chilli in the fiery Peri Peri chicken. Its just not possible not to eat yourself silly …Mozambican food can be very spicy due to the chilli peppers that are liberally used. Peri-peri means “spicy-spicy” and it is a standard accompaniment to just about all meals. It is one of the most characteristic flavours of the cuisine. Traditionally it is made by pounding red chillies, garlic, salt and olive oil and lemon juice together.

Until very recently these islands were simply not known except to the lucky few. 15 years of civil war put an end to local tourism, but now the archipelago is back on track- yet still peaceful and remote.
