Here, the deep sand and thick bush doesn’t slow down the spirit of adventure that the Maputo Special Reserve offers you. Without a big effort, in our specialized vehicles, you will find the vast open areas, where Elephants refresh themselves with long mud baths.
Huge freshwater lagoons nourish a great variety of birds, host the laziness of Hippos and Crocs, and complete the scenery for the jumps and runs of several Antelope species.
A sky with millions of stars will be the starter for the delicious meals prepared by our Chef. The fire will bring light to the darkness of the night. When you wake up from a quiet sleep, you will find out that here, the African savannah meets the Indian Ocean.
