Zavora is an undeveloped area with great diving and kilometres of absolutely gorgeous unspoilt beach stretching as far as the eye can see! In addition to fantastic shallow and deep reefs, Zavora has two wrecks – a 10500 ton liner lying in 53m (the Klipfontein) and a 300 ton fishing vessel, (Rio Sainas) in 32m.

With a wide variety of dive sites, Zavora can accommodate divers of any level – and we constantly explore in order to add new sites every year. 
Zavora is the hidden manta ray hotspot of Mozambique – the Southern Gate of the Megafauna zone. In Zavora, the manta ray cleaning stations are in shallow waters allowing us a good hour of interaction!

Zavora is also the home of the A.C.C.M. – Zavora Marine Lab. an interesting laboratory built out of compressed sand and glass bottle walls. Zavora Marine Lab. has, since 2009, developed research and environmental education in the region. Divers are welcome to visit the lab and participate in activities.
Here over 300 individual manta rays have been identified, 250 species of nudibranch and sea slugs catalogued and more than 100 groups of humpback whales counted daily during winter- a stunning place!
