Guide and Customer Relationship

The Sunset Dhoww Safari is operating since 2012 in Vilanculos providing daily boat trip to discover Bazaruto Archipelago and his amazing biodiversity, unspoiled beaches and landscape.

We are a group of friends that grew up together in Vilanculos, before to join the SDS we had experience as: fischerman, sailor or guide taking care of customers on the islands.

Beginning of 2012 our Captian Jeff decided to start with this project and we were happy to join him on the Team.

We spent months to built up our Dhow, that we completed by ourself painting it directly on the beach as we did not have place where to store it.

The Dhow was ready to be in the water near Easter period and it was for all of us a very emotional time.

Since that day our project start to be a real company, as One Team step by step we improved ourself and our experience working closely each single day doing our best to fully satisfy our customers.

Jeff is our Captain giving us directions and advice, we always have a briefing begining/end of the day where we share experience and opinion, this is our approch to keep high standard level.

Each one of us is covering a proper role in our organization with clear responsability and tasks to perform:
