Mozambique - Travel Tips for Surfers & Divers | TOFO & VILANCULOS

As a surfing and diving couple, we explored the southern coastline of Mozambique for 2 weeks. We stayed most of the time in Tofo and made a short trip to Vilanculos to end our trip. In this video we show you the beauty of the Bazaruto Archipelago, the red sand dunes, the two mile reef and some of the best dive and surf spots around Tofo like Tofinho. It should give you a good overview of the things to do, where to stay, where to eat, how to get around and what to take care of. Enjoy!

Dreamy Mozambique surf trip - surfing & diving in beautiful Tofo & Tofino - Africa Travel - Pollywog

Pollywog surf travel presents Mozambique. Book your trip with us now.

Mozambique is a dream tropical surf destination once simply must travel to. Just one of the many places to visit and surf in Africa and one of the many reasons why you should plan a surf trip to Africa. Africa is one of the last places on earth with pristine, untouched beaches and surf breaks, which makes it one of the best places to visit for a unique surf trip experience.

In this video, we head up to Tofo in the middle of Moz with South African surfers Luke Patterson and Tanika Hoffman to find untapped, rustic beauty and experience the true essence of Africa and of course to score some epic waves and see some incredible marine wildlife along the way.

The roads are mainly dirt, winding through endless palm trees. Even the roads in the village of Tofo are still dirt roads. It is pretty remote, but that adds to the charm. Still, the town has a great energy, with plenty of restaurants serving fresh fish and bars serving ice cold 2M beer!

Surfing in Mozambique is a throwback to the past. The waves are largely uncrowded and the ocean is teeming with wildlife. The main wave is Tofino a right had point break that cooks when the conditions are right. It is a pretty consistent wave too and its possible to surf Tofino all year round. Tofino is probably the most famed wave in Mozambique, along with Ponto do Ouro. The winter months (May, June, July) bring the bigger swells from the south, but Mozambique often receives cyclone swells in the summer (Feb, March) which can create incredible surf conditions. Many South African surfers will drive the long journey chasing cyclone swells up the coast.

Tofo, closer to town is a lot more sheltered and the more mellow wave is often good for longboarding or learning to surf. Tofo is also renowned for incredible diving, especially swimming with Whale sharks and Manta Rays.

Watch Luke Patterson getting barreled and Tanika Hoffman longboarding in Tofo. After a long day of surfing in the hot African sun, we sip on fresh coconuts and just relax, wearing boardshorts and bikini, this is the idyllic summer life. Tofo is a great place to chill out and unwind.

Further north, it gets even more rustic, but no less beautiful. The coast is dotted with great waves, but you need the right car to access them. Surfing in Mozambique is nothing short of an adventure. Places like Pomene are incredibly picturesque and so remote they don't have electricity, but that is one of the reasons to visit... they help you to connect with Africa.

A surf trip to Africa is a unique experience and is a must do on any surf travel bucket list. The people of Mozambique are beautiful and friendly. The scenery uniquely African, and the waves... largely untouched and uncrowded.

We do recommend taking a guide up to Mozambique, as the road is long and the waves sometimes hard to find, but with the right local knowledge, Mozambique (and Africa in general) is a surf paradise waiting to be explored. Chat to Pollywog to book your dream African surf trip.

About This Episode ~
From its jaw-dropping beaches to its emerging wildlife tourism scene, Mozambique definitely has something for every type of traveler. We started our journey from South Africa and made our way up the coast, hitting beachside hotspots: Xai-Xai, Tofo Beach, and Vilanculo, before making our way to Gorongosa National Park where I had one of the most epic wildlife sightings of my life.

For Zander and me, Mozambique was also special because it marked the first time he and I collaborated on a Project:Conservation story together (which you can check out HERE), and in this vlog episode you'll get to see a little bit of the behind-the-scenes action.
______

**URGENT** If you haven't heard, in March of 2019 parts of Africa's east coast were hit by one of the continent's deadliest natural disasters, Cyclone Idai, and Mozambique bore the brunt of its impact. For anyone interested in helping on-the-ground recovery efforts, I have put together this blog post with a list of organizations you can donate to

Surfing Mozambique - Off The Beaten Track In Pomene ???????? (Epic Right Handers!) | Stoked For Travel

Thinking about surfing Mozambique?
Time to get off the beaten path for the ultimate Mozambique surf experience!

Surfing Mozambique is an adventure I'm not going to forget in a hurry and was definitely one of the best surf trips I've been on across the globe.
The mixture remote location (it took nearly 21 hours to reach there overland in a 4x4 from Durban in South Africa!), crystal clear warm waters and empty lineups all added up to a surf trip that I'd only dreamt about before!

We headed North from the more popular spot of Tofo (with another epic right hand point break) to a spot which although fickle can serve up some truly epic rides.

Our gamble paid off too - with 4 days of perfect offshore, clean conditions. Unfortunately the best of the waves aren't in the video as I was too busy surfing Mozambique to capture them!

Honestly surfing Mozambique went above and beyond my expectations and if you're keen to get well off the beaten track and try somewhere new I highly recommend it. Sure it's a bit of a logistical nightmare to organise, but the payoff is more than worth it!

Jet skis, local tours, deserted islands and adventures galore in Vilanculos, Mozambique

#Vilanculos #Mozambique #TravelVlog

Vilanculos was our second stop in Mozambique, and an amazing place to enjoy the ocean, a slower pace of life and sights unlike any other.

We stayed at the beautiful Vilanculos Beach Lodge and enjoyed amazing food, super fun jet ski excursions to nearby islands, and horse rides. We also enjoyed local food like never before.
The water in Vilanculos is some of the clearest I have ever seen, and the people make this place so special.
