The Kisawa Experience

To experience Kisawa is to experience its environment.

The natural ecosystem is evident in every step of your stay. From sunrise to sunset, your personal beachfront, and the clarity of the stars. Enjoy wilderness from the deck of your bungalow or venture further afield to explore all the Bazaruto archipelago has to offer.

Diving with BCSS

With a WWF national marine park in the beautiful and pristine Bazaruto Archipelago, Kisawa has access to some of the most unique experiences in the world.

Kisawa offers different levels of private and group diving experiences that range from bare skin snorkelling with turtles and reef fish to deep sea diving with black, blue and striped marline, sail fish, yellowfin tuna, bull and tiger sharks and manta rays.
