Vila De Sonhos

Change Lodge



Fishing in Vilankulo is excellent, especially for catching Sail Fish, King Mackerel, Queen Mackerel, Yellow Fin Tuna and Barracuda. The Bazaruto Archipelago Islands, which have become well known for catching Black Marlin (in the warmer months) are close and our local, experienced skipper can guide you to the best spots.

Our boat, a 29ft Catamaran called Nevaevagiveup can be hired for $300 a day plus fuel for the islands inside the archipelago and $400 a day plus fuel outside the archipelago. Fishing equipment is available. There is another fishing boat (Ngica) available for hire for deep sea fishing for $200 USD a day plus fuel. The hiring rate includes a skipper.

Snorkeling And Diving

With the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, a number of snorkeling and diving destinations can be enjoyed in The Bazaruto Archipelago Islands, there is no end to your underwater experience. Pack a lunch, venture out for a day with family and friends and take a trip to one of the many snorkeling destinations. Magaruque, 2 Mile and Santa Carolina (also know as Paradise Island) are some of the closest islands only taking between 40 minutes to Margaruque and an hour to Paradise Island. They have an abundance of sea life and make your experience an unforgettable one. Please bring your own snorkeling equipment if you wish to snorkel. Snorkelling equipment is available on request.

Diving, diving courses and island hopping can be arranged, as well as kite boarding through various companies in town.

Horse Riding

Escape civilization and canter down the beach on horse back. Have the wind blowing in your hair and the sun kissing your face as you ride these majestic creatures along the sandy beaches while taking in the breath taking scenery that is Vilankulo.

Horse riding can be arranged through management at the lodge - their website is
