Due to demand and preference for longer bookings, mostly for at least 7 days by most foreign visitors, we are not able to offer confirmed bookings for only 2 nights, long in advance.
To accommodate Maputo residents who often only wish to visit for a weekend, we are happy to make a provisional reservation, but can only offer confirmation 4 weeks in advance if a booking is only for 2 nights, or 6 weeks in advance if the booking is for 3 nights.
Easter Holidays – We recommend at least 7 nights for peak season. Tariff is R12,535/night with R13,110/night applicable for the Easter weekend portion. Due to high demand, we try to optimise the bookings over peak periods.

It comes with a skipper and may be used to visit anywhere around the peninsula: snorkelling, trips to Portuguese Island or Inhaca, water-skiing, tubing, fishing in the bay, sun downer cruises etc. The cost is R2,550/day and will apply for the full duration of your visit. 20 litres of fuel/day are included per 6 night visit or pro-rata for shorter stays.
