The archipelago consists of 5 islands: Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Banque, and Santa Carolina. It is a birders paradise, with a recorded list of over 180 species. You’ll also find 45 reptile and amphibian species; Suni antelope, red duiker, endemic butterflies, and the characteristic Samango monkey on the islands within the national park.
