The activities at and around Ponta do Ouro in the extreme south, Ponta Malongane, is a haven for all nature lovers and adventurers, young and old. The area is totally unspoilt, rustic and relatively uninhabited from a population perspective.

The region enjoys a sub-tropical climate with most of the rainfall being recorded between December and March. The summer months from November to April are characterised by warm temperatures accompanied by relatively high humidity levels whereas the winter months are moderate to warm with much lower levels of humidity.

Average Temperatures:
January +- 25 degrees C
April +- 23 degrees C
July +- 20 degrees C
October +- 25 degrees C

The warm waters of the "Mozambique Current" flow southwards from Madagascar to within 10 Kms of the coastline. The sea temperature generally tracks the land temperature and will go up to 28 degrees in the summer months and down to 21 degrees C in the winter months. This is an ideal ecosystem for the vast number of species of game and reef fish, dolphins, whales and turtles that traverse this area as well as for all of the other activities suited to an "all year round" warm water location.

The coastline from Ponta do Ouro to Inhaca Island is saturated with the most beautiful and pristine hard and soft coral reefs, home to a bewildering variety of game and reef fish, turtles dolphins, whales, sharks and rays. Unlike the coral reefs in South Africa, most of these reefs have remained untouched for nearly 2 decades during the civil war. This again provides an ideal ecosystem for scuba divers and snorkellers alike.

The terrain consists of long and uninterrupted stretches of white sand beaches, high primary sand dunes, coastal forests, inland flood plains and numerous lakes and accompanying marshlands, making it an ideal playground for 4X4 vehicle/ biking and hiking enthusiasts. The roads from the South African border to the various locations are currently sand roads and therefore require 4X4 vehicles to adequately traverse them. However, use of vehicles of any description is strictly prohibited along the beaches.

In order to make use of these activities, guests are however required to bring along whatever equipment and accessories that they may require as very little, apart from diving equipment, is available for hire in the area.
