  • Amazing Place, Amazing Food

    A bit difficult to get to the camp but absolutely worth it. The seclusion, the environment, the views... super fantastic.. Mam Lindo and the staff where so over the top amazing... the food, I've never felt so healthy in my life and taste buds jumping out of joy each bite melt onto my tongue that's how good they were. review

  • Special Place

It’s not just about what you can touch or taste; rather, they look to create moments that make deep impressions while treading lightly on the Maputaland ecosystem. Theyre conscious that our impact must always be a positive one. That’s why they focus on plant-based cuisine, renewable energy, and a level of comfort that’s entirely in keeping with their setting.
