It is speculated that Vasco Da Gama would have sighted Inhaca island in 1497/98. The island was used as a trading post in the 1500,s mainly for ivory trade, however on of the most interesting features throughout the period of Portuguese trading was its fame as a haven of refuge for shipwrecked mariners working their way up the coast from the south. After indescribable hardships suffered on the long coast journey on foot, they always found the natives of Inhaca friendly and helpful. The first of these shipwrecks was the Galleon S. JOAO’ in 1552. After 3 months of traveling along the coast they reached Inhaca and were taken in by the tribe and king and offered food and hospitality and begged to stay until the next trading ship arrived.
