TOFO/MORRUNGULO

EXPLORE MOZAMBIQUE'S UNTOUCHED COAST LINE

PRAIA DO TOFO &  MORRUNGULO

Along the diverse east coast of Africa lies Tofo, Mozambique. With its welcoming feel, pristine reefs and congregation of all year round megafauna, it is arguably Africa's best dive location.

Just 2 hours north from Tofo Beach you will be immersed in the stunning, untouched and unexplored Morrungulo. With no real tourism in the area it gives rise to a ecosystem that is still yet to be fully documented and ventured.

 

A freediver and marine enthusiast's dream expedition.

WHAT SPECIES CAN YOU ENCOUNTER?

Tofo and Morrungulo are probably some of the only places, where you will find that not one time of the year is better than other. With the year round encounters of whalesharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles and so much more, it is hard to pick a favourite.

A GoFreedive favourite is July-October when the gentle giants, Humpback Whales, visit Mozambican coast line.
