Discover the Magic of Mozambique’s Whales
Prepare yourself for an extraordinary journey as you bask in the sunny beaches and enchanting coral reefs of Mozambique. But that’s not all – between June and December, witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of majestic whales and their playful calves along this breathtaking East African coastline.
Awe-Inspiring Giants of the Deep
Golden Palms Beach Resort is your gateway to unforgettable whale watching experiences. Immerse yourself in the wonder of Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales, two of the most common migratory whale species that grace the warm waters of Mozambique. These magnificent creatures migrate from cold waters in high latitudes to Mozambique’s welcoming embrace, where they mate and give birth to their young.
A Vital Opportunity for Marine Conservation
Each migration season presents an invaluable chance for marine biologists and dedicated volunteers to collect vital data on these gentle giants. Through digital photography, behavioral studies, GPS positioning, and DNA collection, every sighting at Golden Palms Beach Resort contributes to our understanding and conservation efforts, ensuring these majestic creatures continue to thrive in their natural habitat.
Discover the Wonders of Baleen Whales
Among the various whale species, Baleen whales stand out with their unique filter-feeder system. With no teeth to speak of, these gentle giants utilize baleen (whalebone) to trap small ocean creatures like krill and plankton, sustaining themselves throughout their seasonal migrations. Witness their acrobatic movements, with Humpback Whales leaping high out of the water and teaching their young calves intriguing behaviors like breaching, tail slapping, and spy hopping.
Enchanting Underwater Symphony
While toothed whales have echo-location abilities, baleen whales have their own mesmerizing way of communicating. In the infrasonic range, these giants produce sounds of high volume, audible for hundreds of kilometers. The Humpback Whales, in particular, produce captivating songs with complex sequences, a mystery that continues to fascinate researchers and nature enthusiasts alike.
