after 10 days in mozambique travelling ( private taxis and local minibus ! ) as far as vilankulos and then coming back via tofo ( whale sharks !!! we opted to spend the last 3 nights here. i had done my research and found this place to be the most affordable. We enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the ferry to arrive at catembe. impressive setting right on the beach with a great view from the rooms.
we loved the boutique feel of the place with gorgeous wood furnishings . staff were polite and helpful with meals delicious. what we really liked was the privacy. the local area is quiet with no hassle from locals. we spent most afternoons walking along the streets/roads birdwatching.
