Cuisine

In the Bazaruto Archipelago, the cuisine is an enticing blend of Mozambican flavours, infused with influences from Portuguese colonial history. Seafood takes centre stage, with fresh catches of prawns, crab, lobster, and a variety of fish frequently gracing the menu.

Piri-piri (a spicy chili sauce) is a staple, often accompanying dishes or used as a marinade for succulent grilled meats. Coconut, cashews, and tropical fruits, such as papaya and mango, are abundantly used in both savoury and sweet dishes. Rice and maize porridge (xima) are common sides, complementing the rich stews and curries.

Visitors can expect a delightful culinary journey, with each meal echoing the archipelago’s coastal charm and cultural heritage.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit the Bazaruto Archipelago is during its dry season, which spans from May to October. During these months, the weather is pleasantly warm with clear skies, making it ideal for beach activities, diving, and snorkelling.

The visibility underwater is excellent, revealing a mesmerising world of colourful coral reefs and diverse marine life. These months also witness cooler evening temperatures, offering comfortable nights. The absence of heavy rainfall minimises the risk of malaria, enhancing the overall safety for travellers.

Conversely, the wet season from November to April can bring tropical storms and intense heat, although it’s when the islands are at their greenest. In summary, the period between May and October ensures a harmonious balance of climate and activities, providing the quintessential Bazaruto experience.
