You simply never get over the views, so stupendous, so unbelievably gorgeous and so almost unreal, of the ocean, the forests, the dunes, the white beaches, the bays….

Highly regarded games room with table tennis, billiards, darts, bar and swimming pool or choose excursions in nature on beach fat bikes, in kayaks or under the water snorkelling and diving.

Family Holidays at Loggerhead Private Villa in Machangulo Nature Reserve

Welcome to a brand new, magnificent eco villa siting high in the dune forests of the Santa Maria Peninsula in the unknown magical Machangulo Nature Reserve. Mozambique villas have never known such luxury, such regal nuance such exotic décor. For unmatched sophistication, utter seclusion in nature and facilities beyond world class, book your suite in a destination reserved for nature lovers who love the glamourous touch to a Mozambique holiday.

Your private luxury villa awaits, sleeping 12 in chic style and perfect for families and groups. What an inspiring name for an inspiring destination in nature – Loggerhead turtles are gorgeous endangered marine reptiles found in the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans coming ashore to lay their eggs in the sands. 

How sad that the Loggerhead turtle is threatened by discarded fishing equipment and plastic waste, while eggs are vulnerable to predators and human development along all coastlines. Insightful conservation efforts at Loggerhead Villa aim to protect these incredible animals and your very booking is a commitment to the conservation of all wildlife in this private Mozambique nature reserve.

Awe-Inspiring Double Rooms Fit for Romance in the Dunes at Loggerhead Villa

Six decadent double rooms have been made for romance and getting away from it all in the superb luxury of a 6-star ambience. Honeymoon couples can be quite alone in the sanctuaries of two of the rooms, throwing open expansive double doors to become one with the natural enclave just outside, the beach a few steps away and the refreshing ocean waves daring couples to venture in.  Soft beds, linen drapes, outside showers and bathtubs to sink into, romance knows no bounds here where wooden decks provide solace from the sun and time to connect. 

Families will love two rooms close together where games can be played and races to the ocean waves become the challenge. Gather around the Loggerhead Villa swimming pool and sip an exotic cocktail at the poolside. Rinse off in the refreshing outside shower and wait until gourmet cooking smells waft over the pool, reminding you that food here is an art, a taste sensation created by talented private chefs who love the catch of the day. 

Activities Abound in the Machangulo Special Nature Reserve near Maputo

Set off on long walks and hikes into the Machangulo Special Reserve, camera at the ready to snap plants, birds, water and forests, while gasping in awe at the wealth of life around you! Plan a boat cruise to Inhaca Island, natural heritage site brimming with indigenous and rare animals and plants, including a lush forest, clean corals and shipwrecks nearby. Take your snorkelling kit and enjoy a sumptuous picnic lunch in a deserted cove somewhere astounding. 

Elephants, buffalos, hippos, rare antelope and flamingos are a sight for sore eyes in the heart of the surreal Machangulo Special Reserve, a reminder that the Maputo Special Reserve is also just up the road and another haven of biodiversity that needs ongoing protection.

At Loggerhead Beach Villa, adventure awaits – snorkelling in the clearest of ocean waves to find the most weird and wonderful corals and seaweeds, fish and shells. Jump on a kayak, go surf a wave or wander down to an activity centre to try a kite surfing thrill or a whale watching boat cruise. Pedal hard on a beach fat bike to explore long white beaches where only you and a few birds seem to exist for that moment in paradise. 

Many guests like to experience a scuba dive and others like to hook a game fish on a deep-sea fishing expedition. The excitement is yours, the rewards are many: experiencing an environment so untouched it feels like heaven – where sharks, dolphins, dugongs and manta rays glide, where myriad birds wade and flit and where wild animals hide in the natural vegetation. It is a privilege just being here, in a nature reserve development where scintillating furnishings and amenities mean that you are the focus only during your Mozambique holiday in the lap of luxury.

Calm down in the evenings around the fire and take on a new friend at table tennis or darts, play a board game until late and shoot pool until the stars are way above you in the stark glitzy heavens. 

Your packaged holiday to the heavenly Loggerhead Villa is an immediate investment in nature conservation, community development and ecotourism security ensuring that all life on the Santa Maria Peninsula lasts into the new ages. An eco-lodge with a huge heart, Loggerhead is the place where you want to learn about turtles, you want to swim like a turtle, and you want to be part of something greater than you and something that brings joy to all nature lovers out there.
