An Ideal Destination
for Peace & Privacy
The Machangulo Private Reserve boasts 25 kilometres of private beach, and 3,000 hectares of a coastal dune and forest ecosystem. Each MACHANGULO property overlooks the pristine beach and the alluring Indian Ocean. Our guests will have the opportunity to see whales, sea turtles, dolphins, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, monkeys, eagles, cape buffalo, and numerous species of antelope, all within the reserve.
Turtles nest and lay their eggs on these beaches, and the nests are protected by our local community. These 6,000 colourful souls are our partners in protecting this wonderful place. Fire Island Eco Retreats is proud of its tradition of service to this community, which includes enhancing the school buildings with electrification, providing housing for teachers, supporting student tuition, and contributing nourishment and shelter support for families in need. Fire Island Eco Retreats provides 2% of all of its revenues to FIRE ISLAND CHARITIES MOZAMBIQUE (a US 501(c)(3) corporation), to aid in its efforts to support both the communities and marine ecology, in Machangulo and elsewhere in Mozambique.
