Diving Tourism in Mozambique: An Opportunity at Risk?

Diving tourism has grown exponentially all around the world. In Mozambique, much terrestrial wildlife was devastated during the war, which left national parks with little to attract tourists. On the other hand, the Mozambican Indian Ocean is relatively unexplored and has a rich biodiversity, including a high abundance of ‘big animals’ such as whale sharks and manta rays that offer great opportunities for the diving industry. This paper examines divers’ perspectives and demographics in Tofo Beach, Inhambane. The paper discusses the urgent need for strategic planning and good management to maintain the attractiveness of the area and avoid loss of biodiversity.
