Private Campsite

There are also 3 private campsites situated within the Main Camp Area

Campers booking these sites enjoy full use of the Main Camp facilities

Main Camp – Barracas (Standard and Superior)

The only difference between the Standard & Superior Barracas is the quality of the mattresses, and their situation.

The Superior Barracas are generally situated in a more favorable, shaded position. They also have superior, hotel quality mattresses.

The standard units are mainly twin bed rooms, and are not as protected from sun and road noise. They also have budget sponge mattresses

These units are situated behind the beach camp, between the restaurant and main campsite entrance road.

These budget units are constructed out of traditional reed materials, and designed in the typical Mozambican style. The units are fairly spacious, and well ventilated.

As they are next to each other, they are not very private regarding sounds.

Most units are two sleepers, but there are family units that can accommodate between 3 and 6 persons. Rooms are available that have either double, or twin single bed configurations.

They are available either with a double bed, or double twin single bed configuration.

There is one single bed unit

Beds have 2 pillows for double bed, and single pillow for single bed

All beds are fitted with mattress and pillow protectors. They all have a fitted bottom sheet, and light duvet.

NB: During the winter months – an extra blanket or duvet may be required. Please take your own extra blanket if you feel you may be cold

Each unit is equipped with a fan, mosquito net, and plug point (2 pin plug) there is one central ceiling light. Subject to load demands electricity to the rooms may be switched off between 6.00 am and 3.00 pm

Plug points have limited capacity, are for charging cell phones and hair dryers only. Fridges and portable fridges are not allowed in the rooms. Plug points can be hired in the main dining area.

Extra Beds:

Extra beds are possible in most units at the relevant price list price.

Service: the rooms are not serviced. Should you require them to be cleaned, please notify reception what time you would like this done. The room occupant must be present when the rooms are being cleaned.



Main Camp – Safari Tents (Standard and Superior)


Our Safari tents are custom made tents, specifically designed with the Mozambican heat, and mosquitoes in mind. They have been designed to ensure that they are well ventilated, yet mosquito proof. They have 4 (2 each side) large mosquito proof zipped windows, and the roof pitch at either side is open to allow thru flow of air (also covered with mosquito gauze.

They have a double zipped door, so the outer canvas door can be left open, and the inner mosquito gauze door still lets air in.

The only difference between the Standard & Superior Safari tents basically is their situation in the Main Camp.

The Superior Safari Tents are generally situated under the trees, and are more widely spaced for greater privacy. Each individual tent has its own private Gazebo protecting it.

The Standard Safari Tents are utilized generally by large groups, dive schools, and student groups who want to be together. They are group together, under a large communal gazebo.

Both types are equipped and fitted out exactly the same

These tents provide a relatively comfortable camping experience, without the hassle of bringing and erecting your own tents, at almost the same price you would pay for a campsite in the adjacent public camp ground

All tents have 2 single beds. These are steel spring camp beds, and have superior hotel quality mattresses.

Beds have a fitted bottom sheet, and light duvet, and pillow.

It is not possible to accommodate a double bed, or extra bed in these tents. In exceptional circumstances, for infants 2 years and under, small mattresses may be brought and placed between the beds.

NB: During the winter months – an extra blanket or duvet may be required. Please take your own extra blanket if you feel you may be cold

Each unit is equipped with one central ceiling light. There are no fans or plug points. 

Extra Beds:

It is not possible to fit an extra bed in any of the tents

Service: the tents are not serviced at all.
