Ilha do Fogo (Fire Island) Mozambique is a one-kilometre wide island, formed on a rock pinnacle left by Africa’s “great rift”, which separated Madagascar from the continent.
It is 25 kilometres from the mainland, and is free of malaria-carrying mosquitos, because it lacks surface water. It is located 1,800 kilometres northeast of Maputo, in the centre of the Indian Ocean migration route for majestic whales. Its two kilometres of circumferencing sandy beach is a breeding ground for several species of cherished sea turtles. Ilha do Fogo forms part of an archipelago of a few small islands, among underwater cliffs and canyons left behind by the great rift.
Things to do
Currently, only comfortably tented camp adventures for Scuba divers is available on Fire Island, but eco-friendly and sustainable semi-permanent structures are being developed for private stays on the island. Fire Tree Lodge serves as the mainland base for Fire Island Adventures, ensuring supplies and access to the mainland is easily available.
