What to see

The Agulhas Current passes through the coast off Inhambane and Tofo and this brings about plankton rich waters. As such, whale shark and manta ray sightings are almost guaranteed here and you might even spot the great oceanic manta rays which come by to feed and clean. Cleaning stations are filled with lyretail anthias, cleaner wrasse and butterflyfish. Migrating whales also travel along the Agulhas Current which is why there are chances to see the likes of humpback whales off the coast from June to November.

At the outer reefs, sharks are quite plentiful with whitetip sharks, blacktip sharks, leopard sharks and if you are lucky, hammerhead sharks. Besides that, consider it a lifetime opportunity if you manage to dive with a dugong but otherwise the reefs and walls have plenty to offer. These include great personalities of the humphead wrasse, giant grouper and potato cod. There are also green sea turtles and the rare loggerhead sea turtles. Smaller critters like moray eels, seahorses, garden eels, and scorpionfish are also a delight to find.

Resort Description

Blu @ Tofo is located directly on Tofo Beach, right next to Tofo Scuba Dive Center. 

Tofo is famous for being one of the best diving destinations in Africa. Look out for humpback whales, whale sharks, mantas, hammerhead, turtles, dolphins, rays and numerous reef fish and macro creatures. 

The resort is comprised of 5 sea view guest rooms. Each is built with a blend of local materials, offset by crisp white bedding and mosquito nets. Step outside and you will find a veranda with seating and ocean views. 

There is a pool with sunloungers and beachfront garden. The local market, bars and restaurants are all a short walk away. Breakfast and lunch is available at the restuarant next door. 

How to get there

Arrival

  • By plane: You can fly to Vilankulos which is approximately 4 hours' drive from Tofo or the local airport (Inhambane) which is 25km from Tofo. There are daily flights to Inhambane from Johannesburg and Maputo.
  • Transfer can be arranged for an additional charge.
  • By car: The drive is quite straightforward but it's important that you drive in the daytime because there are no street lights and it makes it very difficult to see people, animals and potholes! If you are driving you'll need to make sure you have your driving license, car papers and insurance. You should join the DriveMoz Facebook group before travelling.
  • By bus: There are a couple of operators from Maputo but the most common is the “Fatima’s Bus” which takes about 9-10 hours from Maputo and runs daily. 

Departure

  • You can return via bus, plane or car via the same routes as your arrival.
