The house is set on a large plot (2500 m2) with out-buildings that can accommodate more guests if necessary (two self-contained local material cottages). Part of the plot is landscaped, part is volontarily left wild. the whole plot is securely fenced for your security, with inside parking space. possibility of puting tents if necessary.

Where you’ll be

Macaneta, Marracuene, Mozambique

You are in the bush! Next to the road, 10 min by foot to the beach, there is a bar 500 m away, and a few restaurants in some resorts in the vicinity, but you are unlikely to see anyone close to the house. Great view of the wilderness from the deck. No safety problems ever encountered in the area, neither from humans or animals. There are some vervet monkeys around, but they have never approached the house so far, and the usual small bush animals (mainly rodents, and sometimes small bats), generally not too many insects, the house is high on the ground and receive strong sea-breeze.

During your stay

I am not based in Maputo nor Macaneta anymore, but in Burkina Faso. You would be better off with your own 4WD transport, but private transport can be arranged at an extra cost and advance notice, from the airport, Maputo, or Marracuene. My dedicated driver charges 3000 mts one way in a 4x4 Landcruiser for 4 to 7 persons, depending on the amount of luggages.
