Kisawa Sanctuary

Discover Kisawa Sanctuary

Kisawa is a 300-hectare sanctuary set on a protected lagoon within the marine reserve of the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, along the historical Mozambique channel. Encompassing forest, beach and sand dunes, Kisawa is home to some of the richest and least explored subtropical ecosystems in the Indian Ocean. Founded by Nina Flohr, Kisawa was created with heart to be a sanctuary that brings nature, culture and service together, creating a positive impact for the people of Mozambique and its natural surroundings. A haven for design enthusiasts, each residence has its own private beach, open-air deck, infinity pool, outdoor day area and kitchen.

Comprising of one, two and three bedroom bungalow residences, every inch of Kisawa boasts bespoke interiors. Enjoy wellness, culinary flare and island and ocean exploration.
