Ponta Beach Camps – General

Ponta Beach Camps is an affordable, family beach resort directly on the main Beach of the quaint little seaside village of Ponta do Ouro, Southern Mozambique.
Ponta do Ouro is the most Southerly Mozambican town, situated just 4 kms (as the Seagull flies) from the Kosi Bay border with South Africa. Ponta do Ouro - New Tar Road. Hard Surfacing prior to tarring is complete into market & Fernando's Bar. Campsite & Town is now accesible for normal vehicles. 

Our emphasis is on Affordability and Informality – obviously without compromising Service & Quality.
Ponta Beach Camps are essentially 3 separate camps and a small private campsite:
•              Ponta Beach Camps – Beach Front Camp 
•              Ponta Beach Camps – Main Camp
•              Ponta Beach Camps – Private Campsites

 Ponta Beach Camps: Main Camp

 This is a fairly large camp, set back a little from the beach, under the coastal dune trees.There are essential two types of accommodation options available in this camp:
      ·         Barracas – which are traditional, reed constructed “Mozambique style” rooms, and
      ·         Safari Tents – which are the smaller, classic safari tents.

They also have superior, hotel quality mattresses.The standard units are mainly twin bed rooms, and are not as protected from sun and road noise. They also have budget sponge mattresses. These units are situated behind the beach camp, between the Restaurant and main campsite entrance road.

As they are adjoined to each other, they are not very private regarding sounds.
Beds have 2 pillows for double bed, and single pillow for single bed.
All beds are fitted with mattress and pillow protectors. They all have a fitted bottom sheet, and light duvet.

Standard Safari Tents

Our Safari tents are custom made tents, specifically designed with the Mozambican heat, and mosquitoes in mind. They have been designed to ensure that they are well ventilated, yet mosquito proof. They have 4 (2 each side) large mosquito proof zipped windows, and the roof pitch at either side is open to allow thru flow of air (also covered with mosquito gauze.They have a double zipped door, so the outer canvas door can be left open, and the inner mosquito gauze door still lets air in. The only difference between the Standard & Superior Safari tents basically is their situation in the Main Camp. 

The Superior Safari Tents are generally situated under the trees, and are more widely spaced for greater privacy. Each individual tent has its own private Gazebo protecting it. 
The Standard Safari Tents are utilized generally by large groups, dive schools, and student groups who want to be together. They are group together, under a large communal gazebo. Both types are equipped and fitted out exactly the same. 

These tents provide a relatively comfortable camping experience, without the hassle of bringing and erecting your own tents, at almost the same price you would pay for a campsite in the adjacent public camp ground.
All tents have 2 single beds. These are steel spring camp beds, and have superior hotel quality mattresses.
Beds have a fitted bottom sheet, and light duvet, and pillow.
It is not possible to accommodate a double bed, or extra bed in these tents. In exceptional circumstances, for infants 2 years and under, small mattresses may be brought and placed between the beds.
NB: During the winter months – an extra blanket or duvet may be required. Please take your own extra blanket if you feel you may be cold. 

Electrical: Each unit is equipped with one central ceiling light. There are no fans or plug points. 

Extra Beds: It is not possible to fit an extra bed in any of the tents.

Service: the tents are not serviced at all.
