This combo will take you to the breath-taking Zavora, a remote resort in Mozambique with excellent diving opportunities. Guests will stay in the luxurious log style chalets with an amazing restaurant for 3 nights.
Zavora has an amazing marine life for divers to explore, but the main attractions are the Manta Rays and Humpback Whales as well as 5 species of Turtle. Sightings of both are almost guaranteed. What is unique about Zavora is that Manta Rays can be seen on the shallow reefs at 6-12 meters. The Humpback Whales are a unique whale species with a specific body shape and the animal is acrobatic – often seen breaching and slapping the water. The males are known for their complex song they sing, which lasts up to 10 – 20 minutes and could be repeated for hours on end. This magnificent animal was once hunted to the brink of extinction, but today they are a favourite amongst whale watchers worldwide. Divers will complete 8 dives at this destination.
This 10 day diving package will also take you to Praia do Tofo, which is the best year round destination for diving with Whale Sharks in the world. Combining these two destinations makes for an unforgettable dive holiday. Guests will stay at a luxury Guesthouse in Praia do Tofo and complete four dives on these magnificent reefs where there is plenty of marine life to marvel at and a 1 day Whale Shark Safari.
