Casual beach vibe with paradise islands nearby
A relaxed coastal town with some excellent beaches, local restaurants and boat trips to the Bazaruto islands
Located north of Maputo, Vilanculos is a laid back town with easy access to the Bazaruto Archipelago, which can be reached by a 30 minute boat ride, or 10 minute flight. However Vilanculos has its own string of stunning beaches situated to the north and south of the town. The town and surround area is host to a number of good lodges, restaurants, and markets. Vilanculos was one of Mozambique's first tourist destinations, and it's easy to see why.
An added benefit of Vilanculos is that it's served by an international airport with flights from Johannesburg and Kruger National Park, making it the ideal location for a relaxing beach break before, or after, your South African safari.

The Far & Wild Community...
We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.
The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
