Thanks, we had a lovely time.

I think the only down side was that there was no privacy with the thatched walls, apart from that, it was good.

We had a great time – everything was excellent.

Stuart really treated us and all of us enjoyed our stay a lot.

H. Le Roux (July 2013)

Our stay in Casa Chibububo was soooo special. I loved sitting on that patio and watching the boats come in at night. What a view!!

Everything was so clean and neat and well equipped.

….and the staff……… Stuart was great and so helpful and kind. I really think he’s an absolute gem but most of all the food!!!

I can honestly say that that was the BEST crab soup and most definitely the very best prawns I have eaten EVER.

It was honestly the highlight of my time in Mozambique.
