About Paradise Chicavele Resort
Paradise Chicavele Resort is a coastal holiday and breakaway destination for families, friends and individuals who want to relax in the peaceful nature of Mozambique. The resort is situated approximately 200 km from the Komatipoort/Mozambique border and 90 km north of Maputo. The last 10 km to this undeveloped natural piece of coastline, requires a 4×4 or by prior arrangement, you can be collected at our closest town called Manhica where you will leave your vehicle in our safe parking area.
The resort is set in a dense coastal dune forest behind a sand dune, which offers shelter from the wind and the unspoiled ocean. The protection of the fauna and flora is our priority and we positively attempt to keep this resort secluded, unspoiled, natural and isolated.
This “lake and beach’’ location offers any visitor a special feeling of remoteness of the African bush with the advantage of an undeveloped natural piece of coastline. We have wonderful weather most time of the year and this makes Paradise Chicavele Resort a fabulous holiday destination all year through. We also pay tribute to the small local community of Chicavele, they are very helpful and their honest habits served to be a great advantage to make Paradise Chicavele such a pleasure to visit.
A 4x4 is required in order to reach the resort. Please familiarize yourself with the Mozambican rules of the road. Should you visit us please remember to bring everything you need.
