Culture & Nature, Perfectly Balanced

Picture five kilometres of pristine Mozambique coastline in the Bazaruto Archipelago, 300 hectares of calm sanctuary and coastal forest that’s home to throngs of birds and small mammals, and in all that space just 12 deeply private and magnificently luxurious residences. Some are in coves, others sheltered by dunes, all have magical beachfront and enchanting forest – and so much peaceful breathing space you can hear your heart beat.

Kisawa Sanctuary operates hand-in-hand with its sister property, the Bazaruto Centre for Scientific Studies – Africa’s first permanent ocean observatory. Revenue from the Kisawa residences enable ongoing marine conservation, and guests have the privilege of experiencing real time marine conservation efforts, like shark tagging. So by simply enjoying the tropical island holiday of a lifetime, important conservation efforts are being sustained.

THE WORLDS FIRST 3D PRINTED RESORT

YOUR OWN PRIVATE BEACH

Each 200sqm Residence is housed within its own one-acre plot, offering minimum disturbance and maximum appreciation of the natural environment. The world’s first 3D printed resort, Kisawa is a combination of 12 bungalows, positioned within a 300 hectare stretch of forest. Each bungalow has its own private beach, an open-air deck, an infinity pool, an outdoor day area and kitchen.
