We offer tailor-made visits to our own bush camp 200 km away from Vilanculos. It is situated on a hill overlooking the Save-River valley, and offers a unique way to experience the astounding beauty of African bush life. We have Hippopotamus in the river below us and the bush is teeming with a large variety of indigenous birds. Day excursions from here to the ZINAVE National Park take you through unspoilt African bush with varying types of trees and landscapes.
If you want to see more animal life, we offer guided excursions to the GORONGOZA National Park, which is about 450 km away from Vilankulo. Currently this is the most interesting Park in Mozambique with the largest variety of animals and a good range of accommodation.
Both our coastal region and the bush around our Save-River camp offer a large variety of interesting birds. Bring your bird book and binoculars and tell us in the evening how many new species you have spotted.
During the period from July to October a large number of hump-back whales use our warm waters for breeding and calving, and also to have a rest-stop with their older calves on the way to their summer feeding waters. Day excursions to watch these magnificent creatures can be arranged for you.
Deep Sea Fishing
The fishing grounds around the Bazaruto Archipelago are renowned for their variety and size of game fish. We can offer boat charters, including all the necessary fishing gear, as well as specialized guides to take you to their ‚secret‘ spots, where they will instruct you in the best methods appropriate to the type of fish you want to catch.
Vilanculos is becoming a new centre for this amazing sport. Our shallow and protected waters with consistent winds make it an absolute paradise for kite surfers. Two centres with IKO qualified instructors offer courses for beginners and even up to an advanced level.
Whenever you like, be it during the day or even after dark, you can take advantage of our own private sand court.
This is quite special way of riding motor bikes around here, since we have mainly sandy but great bush tracks. If you enjoy riding in deep sand the owner we will be glad to take you on one of our short or larger circuits…
Bikers travelling in the region are especially welcome to use CASA GUCI or our SAVE bush camp as a base for further excursions. Or just stop for a couple of days and recharge your batteries.
