Marine life thrives in the unperturbed areas that are part of the Bazaruto National Park. The park is located in the Inhambane Province of Mozambique. This Southern African nation is closely linked to the Indian Ocean and it is amidst the ocean and oceanic life that we unravel the story of the Bazaruto National Park. The protected area which is part of the park was declared as such in 1971. However, what’s most exciting for wildlife enthusiasts is the large expanse of land and six islands which are all a part of the National Park. An ideal way to experience the wonders of this site would be to stay at one of the luxury hotels, Mozambique has to offer that provide easy access to the park. One such option would be Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort which belongs to Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas.
Marine biologists, conservationists and enthusiasts are drawn to the park as officials aim to ensure the wellbeing of dugong, marine turtles, bottle-nosed dolphins, humpback whales and much more interesting marine life. Moreover, it is said that the coral reefs which are part of the park are among the least disturbed in the world. Thus, expert divers and beginner snorkelers find pleasure in diving deep or exploring the ocean life from the surface.
The tropical climate which spreads through the nation is warm and welcoming. It is also interesting to note that around 3500 people of seven nationalities reside in the protected area. They survive from day to day by cultivating crops and relying on marine resources. Life is tough in these areas yet it is evident that the inhabitants make most of the scarce resources while also protecting the land and oceanic life that surrounds them.
Whether it is for research-purposes or simply for recreation, the Bazaruto National Park has tons to offer observant and caring visitors.
