Casa Mazarette


Our Location

Casa Mazarette is situated right on the beach within the San Sebastian Peninsular. The Lodge is incorporated in the San Sebastian Sanctuary 30 minutes by boat from the town of Vilanculos.

The_Sanctuary_Map.jpgThe Sanctuary is a 30 000 ha reserve covering both land and sea, situated on the São Sebastião peninsula along the Indian Ocean coast in Mozambique and forms the southern most portion of the Bazaruto Archipelago. It was declared a Fully Protected Area by Government in 2003.

Some of the richest biodiversity in Mozambique is found here and the Sanctuary ranks amongst the top biodiversity “hotspots” in Africa. The reserve encompasses a mosaic of wetlands, mangrove swamps, coral reefs, small islands, tidal mudflats, salt marshes, freshwater lakes, estuaries, tree and scrub forest on the coastal dunes, savannah and miombo wood­lands.

The three core functions of the Sanctuary are conservation, community development and eco-tourism.
