Bazaruto Archipelago National Park Mozambique

Mozambique's coastline is home to a fascinating collection of ecologically valuable marine habitats that make up the extraordinary Bazaruto Archipelago National Park. Spanning 143,000 hectares of seascape and 5 islands, Bazaruto became the 13th area to fall under African Parks management, in December 2017.  These 5 picturesque islands, surrounded by vibrant coral reefs and vast seagrass meadows provide critical habitats for an abundance of fish, birds, reptiles, and terrestrial mammals. Dolphins, whale sharks, whales, manta rays, sharks and sea turtles also reside here. Bazaruto is a key international tourism destination and an important conservation area.

Unfortunately, however, Bazaruto Archipelago National Park Mozambique is being threatened by huge press on its natural resources.  Effective management and law enforcement will ensure the end of unsustainable fishing and overuse of resources to secure Bazaruto for years to come.
