Greetings to all guests, that may be interested in staying at Moyeni lodge.

Car: not necessary

The Sanctuary is defined by its incorporation of both marine and terrestrial reserves into its 30,000 hectare space. The reserve features a rich mosaic of wetlands, mangrove swamps, coral reefs, small islands, tidal mud flats, salt marshes, fresh water lakes, estuaries, and tree and shrub forests alongside coastal dunes, tree savannah and Miombo woodlands.

It is an area where some of the richest biodiversity in Mozambique is found and ranks amongst the top biodiversity “hotspots” in Africa.

Home to endangered species such as the Leatherback Turtle and the Dugong (sea cow), this development is pioneering and multifaceted. The terrestrial wildlife on the Sanctuary is being restored through a large scale game relocation operation, and will ensure the future of ecotourism in the remarkable, well protected area. The Sanctuary was recently presented as a world leading model at the World Summit on Conservation.
