Zavora Cottages comprise seven double, luxury en-suite rooms with a communal lounge, set atop a sand dune with offer spectacular ocean views.
Mosquito nets, overhead fans and bath towels are supplied in all the rooms, which are serviced daily. Facilities include a bar and restaurant as well as other types of accommodation. It’s a unique place located amongst the dunes along one of the finest stretches of coastline in the region.
Transfers are one and a half hours from Inhambane, with a short stop in Tofo to change money and get some last minute provisions if required. The dive centre is located a short walk down the beach.
Moz Divers operate daily boat dives from their fully equipped RIB which is launched from the bay, protected by the reef.
Visibility ranges from five to 30 metres, but on average is about 15 metres. Reduced visibility is mainly casued by the upwelling of the cold, nutrient rich water from the Mozambique Channel, bringing with it, plankton blooms and large pelagics; in particular manta rays and whale sharks. Without these days of poor visilibility Mozambique would not have the charismatic mega fauna that makes it such a fantastic place to dive!
Humpback whales are sighted from the deck of the bar, June to November. Occasionally eagle and manta rays burst from the surface in brief flights as well as the streamlined and graceful sailfish. Dolphins are regularly seen feeding and playing in the bay. Year round highlights are the manta ray cleaning stations and the wreck of the Klipfontein. Scubapro equipment rental, Nitrox, Trimix and Rebreathers are available.
