Leisure & Research
The Bazaruto Center for Scientific Studies (BCSS) sits in a unique location. With deep waters and untouched reefs nearby, some of the best diving and fishing grounds in the world are located less than 30 minutes away.
Snorkeling, island hopping, kitesurfing, whale watching and catamaran tours are just a few of the activities that can be enjoyed daily. Hiking, horse riding and sand dune walking are also popular activities on the island.
At BCSS the team and visitors enjoy hard work as well as free time. Supplementary packages are available in conjunction with regular accommodation costs to allow visitors to enjoy the full extent of the Bazaruto Archipelago.
Leisure & Research weekly fees are added to the visitors’ program chosen (Volunteer, Students & Graduates, Seniors & Lab Teams, Media & TV Crews) and include catering, accommodation, access to all facilities/projects, boats/vehicles use (with staff), training where needed but exclude park fees and mainland taxis.
