Fly 1,030km South from Mahe, stopping to refuel at Alphonse Island to Astove, where a boat awaits to take you to the Cosmoledo Atoll, floating Indian Ocean waters that, until recently, have been relatively inaccessible.
Cosmoledo Eco Camp is located on Wizard island, which forms part of the Cosmoledo Atoll and is a short distance from the UNESCO World Heritage site; Aldabra Island. The atoll’s remote location makes it a haven for wildlife. The sand dunes, dramatic flats, mangroves and grassland of Wizard Island and its surrounds are home to boobies, turns, Frigatebirds, nesting turtles and a dazzling array of fish.
The 8 Cosmoledo Eco Camp pods are designed to be perfectly in harmony with their surroundings and make as little impact as possible. Even the lounge and dining areas, which are simple tents, have no floor but use the sand island soil. And what a treat it is to dine under the stars, barefoot with your feet in the warm island sand.
The term “eco-camp” may have you thinking you’re roughing it, but that’s certainly not the case as your private pod, with its outdoor shower and ocean view, comes with air conditioning and a minibar.
But the focus at Cosmoledo is on getting outside and exploring the magic of the Indian Ocean. You can do so via range of activities including paddle boarding, snorkelling, kayaking, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, guided walks across the flats and mangroves and sea safari excursions to see migrating whales, dolphins, Manta Rays or throngs of hungry Milkfish or tuna.
A world of wonder and adventure awaits at Cosmoledo Eco Camp.
