Once we leave Inhambane, we drive to the coast to Tofo. After arrival we head to the dive centre to get introduced to the staff and get your equipment sorted.

Day 8

Tofo

Most people that visit Tofo do so to experience a once in a lifetime encounter with the huge gentle giants of the sea, the Whale Sharks, but Tofo itself has a lot to offer whilst out of the water. Its laid back atmosphere along with beautiful stretches of empty beaches and lively bars and restaurants in the evening makes this a perfect place to relax!
