Kite Surfing the Bazaruto Archipelago from Vilanculos

2400 USD 8 days / 7 nights

Kite Bazaruto (14)

Warm turquoise blue crystal waters, tropical climate, abundant sea-life and the thrill of kite-surfing the uncrowded epic sites of Vilanculos and Bazaruto Archipelago Marine National Park. This is what to expect from a kite-surfing holiday in Mozambique.

Due to the shallow waters of the bay and constant winds this location is perfect to take the first steps into this activity. For the most experienced kiters this location also offers a wide variety of kiting experiences from shallow sheltered bays for the novice to amazing down winders for the more experienced. The fluctuating tides, calm glass uncrowded waters and occasional 20 knot winds allows for great kiting.
The winds in the winter months (June to September) tend to be south to south easterlies and anything from 12 to 25 knots. In the summer months north easterlies are more predominant. A variety of options for the beginner to the experienced kite surfer.

Vilanculos is the getaway to the islands of Bazaruto Marine National Park. This typical Mozambican town is located in a bay overlooking the Islands of Magaruque, Benguerra and Bazaruto. From here we can also have access to the Santuary – San Sebastian peninsula. All of these spots offer great kiting options depending from where the wind blows. White sands, blue and crystal waters is what we can find in this location. This spot is awesome for freestyle riding. Lots of little sand bars to jumps over and explore.
