Ilha do Fogo

kayaking in mozambique

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.

Highlights

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.
