This is a great destination to stay over If you are enroute past Montepuez, to Pemba and / or would like to experience the Mozambican culture and lifestyle. Up here, the air is cooler, the vegetation is lush and green and the locals give you a warm welcome to the "other" side of Mozambique.

Mozambicans love clothes and if you have spare clothes (especially board shorts), then remember to take some with you, to trade with!
