A mere 2 hours by air and sea from the urban jungle of Johannesburg, the Sanctuary sits peacefully at the tip of the San Sebastian Peninsula on the Indian Ocean coast of Mozambique. A product of the pioneering vision of the Mozambique government and a group of founding investors, the Sanctuary was established in 2000. Since then the Sanctuary has gained widespread respect in conservation and ecotourism circles as a leading example of the ideal cooperative alliance between government, private investors and local communities.
The Sanctuary is defined by its incorporation of both marine and terrestrial reserves into its 30,000 hectare space. The reserve features a rich mosaic of wetlands, mangrove swamps, coral reefs, small islands, tidal mud flats, salt marshes, fresh water lakes, estuaries, and tree and shrub forests alongside coastal dunes, tree savannah and Miombo woodlands.
In addition to the different habitats, The Sanctuary hosts 298 species of birds, provides safe breeding grounds for 5 marine turtle species and marine protected areas for the critically endangered Dugong and other marine life. The Sanctuary also boasts growing populations of large mammals including eland, blue wildebeest, zebra, giraffe and sable.
It is an area where some of the richest biodiversity in Mozambique is found and ranks amongst the top biodiversity “hotspots” in Africa.
