Travel South from Maputo, take a short trip across the bay, and you will find yourself on the Machangulo Peninsula. Unspoilt and unfettered, Machangulo Private Nature Reserve sits adjacent to Inhaca Island. Her coastline is where endangered loggerhead and leatherback turtles reside; her interior a diverse ecosystem of lakes, mangrove swamps and verdant indigenous bush.
Boasting both marine life and African wildlife, Machangulo Peninsula is a unique safari destination. Whales and elephant, dolphin and zebra, giraffe and sailfish; all these and more can be spotted in the same destination and often on the same day. Birdlife is abundant; waders, forest and pelagic species all live within this tropical paradise. Vervet monkeys inhabit the dune forests, their antics providing endless entertainment for those who care to observe.
The warm waters of Machangulo Peninsula invite visitors to swim, snorkel and dive. And if you’re so inclined, fishing is both rewarding and exciting.
A trip to the tropics is enhanced by the comfort and spoils of luxury accommodation.
