Camp Carlos is situated in Mozambique on the Eastern side of the Maputo Bay, merely 300m South of Inhaca Island. We are proud to be one of the only non-commercials holiday destinations left in Mozambique, offering pure tranquility and relaxation away from the bustle of the busier tourist hot spots.

We're delighted to inhabit the best location on the Inhaca Peninsula - where the crystal clear tropical waters and the spectacular white sandy beaches provide the perfect playground for the whole family!

A few steps from your front door you find the crystal clear waters of the warm Indian Ocean... Endless wide open beaches offer hours of strolling pleasure... A secluded Paradise
