Bazaruto, Mozambique

So why do people go to Mozambique?

Our first real destination was a coastal town called Vilankulos, gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago. It took 9 hours of bus to get there (usually it’s 12). It’s also maybe like 1/5 of the way up the Mozambican coast from Maputo. Mozambique is huge.

That little boat is called a Dhow. You pay a nice man some money and he takes you places. Boarding:

Yeah.
