Rio Savane

Rio Savane is nestled beneath a large coconut grove between the Savane River and the open sea. Just 34km Northeast of Beira lies Rio Savane. The campsite offers basic facilities: gauzed barracas, ablution blocks, beach showers, bar, ice and limited freezer and cold-room space. They have recently opened 2 self-catering units (bungalows). Access to the spit is by motorised dhow, with porters on hand to move all your baggage. Safe parking is provided for guests vehicles across the river. This section of virgin coastline offers the visitor fishing opportunities, with surf, estuary and river fishing all close at hand. Deep-sea fishing is approximately 5 km to 20 km offshore. The estuary provides safe launching and mooring of boats, but due to tidal changes, a large anchor (sea-orientated) and a rope at least five times the length of your boat is needed. (It is recommended you launch your boats at high tide only). From the estuary the open sea is easily accessible and the river is negotiable for up to 8 km upstream, depending on the season and the tide. The bottom fishing in the Beira region is normally very good. In addition to this, visitors may also try their hand at fly-fishing in the estuary. Tropical vegetation including coastal forest, riverine forest, open wet grassland and mangrove are all found in the area. Resultantly, a vast variety of birdlife is found in the area including some rare and unusual species, such as the Forest Robin (endemic), Crestnut Fronted Helmet Shrike and the Blue Quail. There are no organised tours at present. Wildlife to be seen in the area includes blue and red Duiker, Bushpig and Hippo. Buffalo are moving back into the region on the North side of the river.

This is just an exquisite place to be... We will definitely be back in the near future!!! I highly recommend spending time at Rio Savane, its a great place for anyone who has kids or just wants to chill out with their buddies on the beach all day. Staff were really friendly and helpful although not many could understand English too well it wasn't a mission to converse. Camping was humour too especially with all the sand around and kids running in and out...Two thumbs up for Rio Savane!!!!

Title: barraca

we stayed in a barraca during the quiet season and it was an amazing experience. Very basic, but because of that it was special. Bought fresh seafood every day from the local village. The manager and owner were very nice people. By the way the owner is a pharmacist with his own business in Beira and is very knowledgeable. Ablutions clean and adequate. This is a very simple unspoilt place. Dont expect to be entertained if you dont just want peace and quiet.

We spent 10 idyllic days at Rio Savanne. The facilities are very basic, the abultions are clean (hot water costs extra - but there is no need for it) there is a restaurant that serves basic dishes, beer and cold drinks can be purchased there and an order service for groceries, etc is there if needed. For the rest it is like being 10 km from heaven, the campsite is clean and secure. A place to let your hair down and think only of what you will eat for your next meal, as I said HEAVEN !!!
