Anvil Bay Chemucane
Mozambique Southern Peninsula

Anvil Bay Chemucane in Mozambique boasts beach loving ellies, migrating whales, nesting turtles and world-class views of bush and beach all rolled into one.

Anvil Bay, the land of sand and sea, nesting turtles, dancing dolphins and Africa’s last remaining herd of coastal ellies. What more could one want on their Mozambican beach holiday?

Why We Love It and You Will Too

  • As you’re sitting around the dinner campfire, prepare to be completely mesmerized by the brilliance above and around you.
  • For a bush adventure, make headway into the nearby Maputo Special Reserve to witness Southern Africa’s last remaining coastal herd of elephant.
  • Avid fishing-enthusiast? Species such as black, blue and striped marlin, sailfish, wahoo, dorado, various tuna species, king and queen mackerel, kingfish and barracuda are all to found here and reeled in.
  • Set sail on one of Anvil Bay’s purpose-designed boats for a 2-hour leisurely cruise along the coastline in search of marine animals big and small.
  • Bottlenose dolphins are frequent visitors to the shores, as are manta rays.
  • The Anvil Bay coastline is also a rich nesting ground for both Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles (October to March) 
  • All benefits from your holiday will go to the local community, while concession fees go directly to supporting conservation efforts in the reserve.
  • Children of all ages are welcome.

The camp’s byline reads “barefoot luxury”, and aptly so. We agree that there’s no better way to describe this beachy haven, sandwiched between a white sandy bay, and a natural coastal forest. It has built a solid reputation for its top-notch hospitality, and what we really love about this Mozambique beach accommodation is how it effortlessly maintains its philosophy on sustainability.

Crafted from organic, reusable materials, with minimal day-to-day waste, it’s a true green haven for responsible travellers. At the heart of the camp is the beach bar lounge and restaurant, centrally positioned on the bay with canvas tent-style Mozambique beach accommodation units called casinhas (a little home) on either side, each with their own private deck ― a sundowner spot for the win! ― with a great balance too, close so to all the action, but without compromising on privacy.

Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean, and wake to the most incredible views. Spend your days at your own leisure out on ocean safaris, kayaking, snorkelling or simply exploring the treasure trove of rock pools just yonder. With Maputo Special Reserve nearby, adventures among land-based wildlife is an easy feat, and since the Anvil Bay coastline is also a rich nesting ground for both Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles, you’ll be in for a real marine wildlife treat too, especially from October to March, when turtle season officially begins.
