Day 1: Arrive in Inhambane, Mozambique
Fly from Johannesburg, South Africa to Inhambane, Mozambique. You will be met at the airport by a local guide and transferred by road for 90 minutes taking in the sights and the sounds on Inhambane as you venture to the remote resort of Zavora. On arrival at Zavora resort, you will check into a rustic yet comfortable log style chalet. This one bedroomed on-suite chalet will be your home for the next 3 nights. Meals will be enjoyed at the lodge restaurant which is only a few steps from your chalet. Here you can sit on the deck overlooking the beach and watch whales (in season).
Day 2 to 4: Diving Zavora
Today is the first of 3 diving days at Zavora. Most dives at Zavora result in manta sightings. The reefs in general are in excellent condition. They have an abundance of marine life such as 5 Species of Turtle, over 80 species of Nudibranchs with 4 species not even named yet. Eels, a friendly Potato Bass and much more. The big things to see here of course include the Humpback Whales and Manta Rays. In season you will hear Humpback Whales on nearly every dive and always have a chance of seeing one when on scuba. Many times, when surfacing after a dive you will notice that you are not too far from one of these amazing giants. They can he very curious and so we simply need to observe when the opportunity presents itself. On the way to the dive sites from June – September we will be seeing Whales all the time and many times will have to manoeuvre around them.
Day 5: Last dives and transfer to Praia do Tofo
Today you will do your final 2 dives and then say goodbye to the Whales and mantas of Zavora as you head off to Tofo, the Whale Shark capital of Africa. Here you will check into your luxury Guesthouse where you have your own spacious unit consisting of a patio area, bedroom, and bathroom.
The suite is luxurious and modern and has stunning views over the ocean and is only a stone’s throw from Tofo beach and Dive centre. Once you have checked in you can go and check out the dive centre where they will help you sort out your diving gear and inform you of the diving schedule for your stay.
