Anvil Bay has a privileged location on Mozambique’s southern coast. It is set, with the lightest of eco-footprints possible, in the Maputo Special Reserve, a conservation area that protects a pristine stretch of tropical coastline and its heavyweight inhabitants: hippo, giraffe, antelope, zebra and even elephants.
Guests at Anvil Bay can enjoy all the attractions of a beach resort such as water sports, diving and snorkelling along with wildlife activities such as whale watching, turtle nesting, bird watching and game viewing – truly combining the best of both worlds. A community-based approach means that your holiday contributes to local development programmes and conservation programmes for a win-win outcome.
Above all, Anvil Bay seeks to deliver a personalised and unforgettable experience in Mozambique. There are only nine timber-and-reed suites (known as ‘casinhas’) at camp, each tucked into shady coastal forest and just a short walk to the beach on the warm Indian Ocean. You can choose to be as active as you like, and the lodge is well equipped to entertain even the most adventurous of families with children. Its exclusive nature also lends itself to romantic journeys and honeymoons, especially in combination with a classic big game safari in the private reserves of the Kruger National Park or kwaZulu-Natal, both in neighbouring South Africa.
