Staff Tip –

Dudu is the housekeeper. Please feel free to give her a tip at the end of your stay if you wish.
She is extremely hard working and speaks very little English. Oros, our offsite manager, is available to sort our day-to-day problems and assist with conveying messages to Dudu if she doesn’t understand you. She will clean the house, make beds, wash dishes, etc. She will only do bed linen laundry if the weather permits. There is a washing machine, only Dudu uses the washing machine, and it’s used for linen only. If you would like laundry done it’s at an extra charge.
You are not obliged to feed her, but any leftover food is much appreciated.

Swimming in the Ocean
We would like to extend a crucial reminder to all visitors planning to swim in the beautiful waters of Mozambique. 
While the allure of Mozambique’s pristine beaches may be enticing, it is imperative to exercise extreme caution when venturing into the ocean.
We regret to inform you that many beaches in Mozambique lack signpost warnings and are not equipped with lifeguards,
significantly increasing the risks associated with swimming.
One of the most significant dangers to be aware of is the presence of rip tides.
These powerful currents can swiftly pull even the strongest swimmers out to sea, posing a grave threat to your safety.
Without proper signage or lifeguards to guide you, it is vital to remain vigilant and heed any natural warnings such as sudden changes in water color or unusually strong currents.
In light of these hazards, we strongly advise all visitors to exercise caution and refrain from swimming alone. Always inform someone on the land of your plans,
and never underestimate the power of the ocean.
