Kisawa Sanctuary

Back to Member Benefits

The Kisawa residences are perfectly situated whether within a sheltered cove or up in the dunes, overlooking the ocean. At the heart of the sanctuary, guests discover shared spaces dedicated to dining, relaxation and wellbeing, along with an expansive Natural Wellness Center.

Location Description

Kisawa is a 300-hectare sanctuary of forest, beach and sand dunes, located on the southern tip of Benguerra Island. Benguerra Island is situated 14 kilometers off the coast of Mozambique, on the eastern coast of Africa.


Kisawa offers eleven unique and individually-furnished residences — each possessing their own beachfront, private infinity pool and day area — with an outdoor kitchen, cabana and a dedicated service team.

  • Every dwelling is carefully positioned within its own secluded plot of at least one acre of beachfront, sand dunes and forest; providing maximum privacy, minimum disturbance and optimum appreciation of the natural environment.
  • No two residences are exactly alike — each has its own unique elements of interior design and color scheme, nestled within different landscapes of the sanctuary.
  • Throughout the four culinary locations at Kisawa, the ethos remains the same; a commitment to sanctuary-grown produce, the practice of organic and seasonal gardening methods, using the freshest,locally grown produce and ingredients from the Inhambane province.
  • Located among dunes at the heart of the sanctuary, the Natural Wellness Center offers guests individual rituals rooted in the natural elements of air, fire, water, space and earth.
  • In addition to founding Kisawa, Nina Flohr launched its sister property, the Bazaruto Center for Scientific Studies (BCSS) — also located on Benguerra Island and Africa’s first permanent Ocean Observatory.
