Introducing Vilankulo

Vilankulo is the finishing (or starting) point of Mozambique’s southern tourism circuit, and an institution on the southern Africa backpacking and overlanding scenes. It’s also the gateway for visiting the nearby Bazaruto Archipelago, separated from the mainland by a narrow channel of turquoise sea. During South African holidays, Vilankulo is overrun with pick-ups and 4WDs, but otherwise it’s a quiet, slow-paced town with some lovely nearby beaches.
