Kilima Sanctuary

Kilima Sanctuary

A stay at Kilima Sanctuary, in the Western arm of the Indian ocean, provides our guests with an incredibly enriching experience. Our spectacular location offers opportunities for ocean adventures, encounters with Africa’s extraordinary animals, or dune forest walks. That being said, with staggering 360° panoramic views presenting spectacles of nature found nowhere else on earth, our guests can spend days on end soaking up the scenery, without leaving the comfort of the villa. From the many rooftop terraces, savour the sweeping views along the entire peninsula and, on clear days, embrace the Maputo cityscape across the bay.


We are committed to protecting the natural splendor of Machangulo and beyond, and our sanctuary aims to leave only the lightest of footprints. Our eco-conscious villa is operated by Fire Island Conservation, a project working to sustain our planet for future generations, so they too can experience the beauty of its biodiversity.

Machangulo Peninsula, Mozambique – Accessible via the Marylin Monroe of the skies, a beautiful Beech 18 private aircraft, ensures that getting to our remote Kilima Sanctuary is convenient while bestowing an experience in itself. The exclusivity of this breathtaking peninsula is one of its charms, and our guests should not be surprised when they see no other souls along the endless stretch of coastline. There is also the option of traveling by boat across Maputo Bay, or driving through Maputo Special Reserve into the natural wonder of Machangulo Nature Reserve, where our retreat is located. With a wealth of wonders afoot, our guests have an opportunity to marvel at the beauty of nature during adventures around the reserve, and immerse themselves into the local culture.
