Mozambique Yachts - Bazaruto Archipelago Yacht Charters
Mozambique Yachts. 7 night Yacht Charter to Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique on a private luxury catamaran.
BAZARUTO ARCHIPELAGO - YACHT CHARTER CRUISE ITINERARY
Bazaruto Archipelago has beautiful islands to explore and our Mozambique Yacht charters include visiting the main islands of Bazaruto and Benguerra, as well as the smaller islands of Linene Island, Bangue, Magaruque and Santa Carolina (Paradise Island).
The Bazaruto and Vilanculos region is a popular beach holiday destination with a number of 5 star international resorts and lodges as well as a range of other hotels and resorts. Therefore, it has a well-developed tourism infrastructure.
However, for yacht charter holidays, Bazaruto Archipelago is an undiscovered destination and we can almost guaranteed you will not see another yacht on your charter.
This means exclusivity for you…beaches and islands all to yourself!
Bazaruto Marine Life
Bazaruto Marine Reserve also has extensive protected coral reef, offering truly world-class diving, snorkelling, and catch-and-release game fishing opportunities.
Bazaruto is one of the best places in the world to see Humpback whales which travel from from Antarctica to mate and give birth in the warmer waters of the Mozambique's Indian Ocean.
Whale sightings are very high during the season and our experienced skippers also keep their eyes open for other animals and birds, such as flamingos, dolphins, turtles and if you are lucky the elusive dugong!
Bazaruto Resorts and Lodges
Bazaruto Archipelago also have a number of top end luxury island resorts and the mainland at Vilanculos has a wide range of beach resorts and lodges, so it is easy to combine a yacht charter with a resort or beach lodge combination in Bazaruto.
It is also easy to combine Bazaruto Archipelago with an African safari, with direct flights daily between Kruger National Park and JHB.
