Mamoli Beach Camp is a small slice of heaven for those who enjoy the ocean and outdoors. The shaded campsite is set within the indigenous coastal forest, with private access to the beach. Our hosts, Pete and Charne, were fantastic. They went above and beyond to guide us snorkeling at a coral-rich reef which must rank amongst the top shore dive sites in Southern Africa.

The staff were friendly and the camp was cleaned daily. We will be back!

We went on a St Lucia Turtle Tour. It said on their website that 'Our tours do not involve driving on the beach' and 'We believe that the use of any vehicle on a turtle nesting beach in an unnecessary disturbance to the nesting turtles'. They drove on the beach. Their website also said 'We offer 50% money back on all of our St Lucia Turtle tours if no turtles are seen'. We did not see any turtles and requested the 50% money back as stated. They did not refund the money.

Our wish was swimming with dolphins, so we contacted Extreme Nature. We've had a lot of contact in order to arrange the dive, about weather conditions etc. They remained very friendly and helpful throughout the whole experience and arranged everything perfectly.

A very experienced crew helped us find the dolphins on a quick RIB boat and we did swim with them, it was more than amazing.

Thank you Extreme Nature, especially Peter!

We stayed for 7 nights in a group of 6 families with children from 7-13 in the camp. It was simply an amazing experience. From arriving to be met by Peter to lead us through jungle tracks and wetlands because the normal track had been flooded to snorkelling with octopus on a deserted beach. From fresh bread (and beer!) delivered daily to cooking fish from a deep sea fishing trip on an open fire. The camp is great - remote but clean and with the all the basics, including a good ablution block. Peter and his team were very helpful and genuinely nice people. The beach (a few minutes walk over a dune) is stunning - deserted, white sand, warm very clear sea, good waves but not bad currents (whilst we were there). A really great "adventure getaway".

Mamoli Beach Camp is truly a slice of paradise. Tranquility at its best. Only a short walk to the beach from camp, either North or South will get you to rock pools (South getting you to Mamoli Point). Be on the lookout for beautiful shells on the way and take in the natural beauty. Fishing is out of this world, flicked with spoons and dropshots and caught a variety of species. The vibe at the camp is so peaceful. Ponta Malongane and Do Ouro is a lovely drive away, prawns and beers a definite must. I was lucky enough to stay for 3weeks, but when I arrived back home I longed to be back at Mamoli. I still do...

Resort review – Mamoli Beach Camp
By G Buys

In December 2021 we were fortunate enough to spend 8 days at the secluded Mamoli Beach Camp in Southern Mozambique.
The camp is set in lush shaded beach forest on the leeward side of a big dune. A short walk up a steepish hill and down the other side finds one at a beautiful deserted beach. The water is always warm and mostly clear.
We were a party of four; two adults and two teenagers. We rented the cabin for the adults and one campsite for the kids. The cabin is basic but more than adequate, with a small balcony that also doubles as a kitchen (it’s lovely to cook while looking out at the forest that surrounds the balcony), one large room with two single beds, and a bathroom with shower, toilet and basin.
The camp has an excellent newly built and very clean ablution block, which is more than adequate for the small number of campsites.
The camp manages to feel completely peaceful and far away enough from civilization to hear nothing but forest and ocean sounds at night, but is actually only 10km from Ponta Malongane and its bars and restaurants, and another 7km from Ponta do Oura, where we went on an amazing dolphin encounter.
The point, approximately 1km north of the camp, has one of the best snorkeling spots I’ve ever seen, although it’s a bit tricky to get to, requiring either a strong swimmer with fins or a friendly canoeist to help…
Although I’m not a fisherman, there is excellent surfing off the beach or rocks.
The camp’s host, Peter, is an excellent host, tirelessly ferrying us to the best snorkeling spot in his kayak, encouraging us all to try surfing or body boarding, and generally being an awesome all round guy.
I can’t recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be back.

The accomodation is delapitated and at night there is poop and gunk falling from the roof. The bedding looks like someone's dead aunt that has been in use for 6 generations as it is torn and full of holes. The roofs are leaking and haphazardly patched with plastic. We cut our stay short and left two days earlier. The attempt of a fridge (which you pay extra for) is rusted and cannot keep anything cool. If you opened the fridge you have to bang on all the corners of the door in the hope that it keep the cool air inside so that it does not escape through the rotten seals. One of the units had such a stench of urine that our friends had to sleep with another couple that were on vacation with us. People in short for the ridiculous amount you pay per night you are better off in a tent or under sthe stars. No power connections in the bungalows and the electric wires that give the units power for light in the evenings are open on the ground with live wires sticking out as the isolation tape is not even properly covering the connections. Horrible discusting and a let down in every aspect of trying to have a break from the hustle and bustle.

We were met off our cruise ship when it docked in Richards Bay. We were a large Group from the ship but we travelled in small coaches to the park. Peter had provided breakfast packs for us to eat enroute to the Game Park. We then boarded open sided vehicles to explore the beautiful game park. We had 2 game drives and enjoyed a good lunch. We saw elephants, white rhino, giraffes, impala and buffalo as well as enjoying the impressive views of the park. Our guide had worked in the reserve for some years and answered all our questions.

Had a really enjoyable day and got some good photos to remember it. Many thanks to Peter for arranging the trip.

So we were back for the second time in St. Lucia and booked a day tour safari in Hluhluwe with Extreme Nature Tours as we did in 2016. It was a great day with lots of amazing sightings on Elefant, Giraffes, Rhinos, etc. Ian yet again answered all our questions and told amazing, to us unknown stories of the animals behavior and habitats. So we leave St. Lucia with the knowledge that we will definitely be back ! Thanks Ian and Peter for an amazing day in Africa

I cannot say enough good words about Peter Koen and Extreme Nature Tours. A while ago, I organized a last minute and very demanding group from a luxury cruise ship who were used to the very best -- adventure, luxury and excellence. Peter exceeded all our expectations and the two days spent in his company were not only action packed but also serene, kind, compassionate, knowledgeable and fun all around. Peter and his crew demonstrated a kindness and hospitality that is so rare and special. They cared deeply about our well being and enjoyment -- always with a smile and good humour. Thank you Peter -- we are returning in 2020 and its been too long..... and this time, we return as friends....
