Fantastic place. We felt write at home. Bar and restaurant was relaxing and well stocked,great food as well. Accommodation was basic but clean. Needs fans in the rooms for those hot Mozanbique nights.

Fantastic hospitality and service! An absolute gem of a find in such a picturesque location. We were well received and when we requested to change our accommodation from camping to a chalet, the staff were very accommodating. The food served was superb and we were very comfortable with our stay there. Will definitely return.
