Western Indian Ocean: 2017/18

We left India at the start of 2017 to sweep south through the Maldives, across to the Seychelles and onward to East Africa. We explored Tanzania, Mozambique, Madagascar and South Africa over the course of our two years in the Indian Ocean, visiting wildlife parks, sailing alongside beautiful dhows, through tribal villages, and collecting a myriad of stories and adventures as we went. The diving off the coast of Mozambique was second to none, where all was on offer from the smallest to the largest, whale shark, humbpack and manta providing some exceptional marine experiences, and land travel to game parks through South Africa provided the smallest to largest thrill in equal measure. 

We left the boat after transiting the South African coast from Richards Bay to Cape Town to work in New Zealand for the next year and a half, and remind us of the pains, treats and delights of living ashore again.
