Experience the splendour of nature with our exclusive

Turtle Tour

Man is not above nature, but in it.

The villa boasts 6 luxury, ensuite bedrooms, all with magnificent sea views and offering privacy and luxury to the discerning traveller. Machangulo, with its 21 kilometres of pristine beaches, is one of the few places on earth where the loggerhead turtles come to nest. Come experience this extraordinary landscape and become one with nature again.

Experience vintage travel
from a bygone era

Springbok Classic Air is offering Exclusive Flying Safaris for the discerning traveller, to remote and exclusive destinations in Africa. We cater for travellers who desire a unique, remote and exclusive travel experience, in a short space of time. Our 1958 Beech 18 Vintage aircraft has a rich and prestigious history. She became a Hollywood star in 2008 when she featured in the movie ‘Amelia’, alongside Hilary Swank and Richard Gere. The orange trim on the aircraft remains from her movie debut, reflecting the colours of Earhart’s own aircraft.

Become one with nature again

Loggerhead Beach Villa is an exclusive, luxury destination situated on the beach along the Mozambican South Coast. A short 15 minute flight from Maputo Airport, you can enjoy panoramic views of pristine dune forest and fall asleep to the sound of the Indian Ocean crashing against the shoreline. With six luxury rooms to choose from, Loggerhead Beach Villa can accommodate up to 12 people in exceptional comfort.

The Marilyn Monroe of the Skies

Nicknamed the Marilyn Monroe of the skies, guests are chartered in a vintage Beechcraft Model 18 aircraft, one of only 50 across the world still in commercial use. Operated by Springbok Classic Air and hosted by Fire Island Eco Retreats, we offer guests first-hand experience of these two companies’ passion for preservation and conservation.
