Sailaway is committed to providing a hassle free adventure to the Bazaruto Archipelago.
Please bear in mind that our safaris are for the adventurous spirit. Rest assured that we will try to make your safari as comfortable as possible.
The islands are a malarial area, so take precautions. Bring a basic first aid kit with you. If prone to seasickness, bring medication with you. If you have any food allergies please tell us beforehand, as the islands are a long way from a hospital.
There are some rules of the sea: No excessive consumption of alcohol whilst under sail, and do not jump off the dhow without permission from the crew, as there are often strong currents. We provide snorkeling equipment, but if you need corrective lenses, please bring your own mask. Wear a T-shirt whilst snorkelling in summer.
The Sailaway crew are very experienced, and the captain’s decision on the safari route is final, particularly if the weather takes a turn for the worse during your safari.
Weather and wind conditions can affect the trip itinerary. The dhow is an open boat, so if it rains, you will get wet. On safari, the captain will invariably need to make use of the auxiliary motor to ensure arrival in good time at various destinations en route. This may be due to a lack of wind, which is often the case in the early morning, or the wind blowing in the wrong direction. Sailaway cannot guarantee arrival at all of the islands or reefs, but every attempt will be made to ensure the trip is as inclusive as possible.
If you experience any problems on your trip, please raise the issue immediately. You are welcome to tip the crew after your safari.
