Vilanculos is a stunning coastal town in the Inhambane Province of Mozambique. Named for the tribal chief, the outer lying areas were named after his sons. During the colonial period the name was changed slightly to better suit the Portuguese language, but was changed back to the original name that it currently carries. Vilanculos tours offer everything that makes Mozabique such a popular and special place to visit. The tropical coastal town maintains some its rural past while providing tourists with all the facilities and services they need.
