Home to the ruins of a fort which remain a mystery, Hithadho originates from Buddhist settlement dating back to the 5th century. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the island of Mozambique is home to 16th century architectural features with a culmination of Portuguese, Indian and Arab influences. Originally formed by the effects of volcanic activity, the island of Nosy Be is covered in lush vegetation and features many craters. Ile Alphonse is part of the outer islands of the Seychelles, at the heart of the Indian Ocean, 400 kilometres south-west of Mahe and seven degrees south of the Equator.
