In a traditional dhow on the estuary at Inhambane

Luciano and his family took us out for the day on their traditional dhows on the estuary of Inhambane, Mozambique to fish, snorkel and eat seafood. Inhambane, also known as Terra de Boa Gente (Land of Good People), is a city located in southern Mozambique, lying on Inhambane Bay, 470 km northeast of Maputo. The settlement owes its existence to a deep inlet into which the small Mutamba River flows. Two protective sandy headlands protect the harbor and form a sandbank. The sister town of Maxixe is located across the bay of Inhambane.
