    I agree and I would like to add, land in macaneta is cheap i would purchase maybe 500m inland and purchase a further half hectare on the beach and half a hectare on the lagoon - you could put up clubhouses and also create the impression that there is alot to do if they choose to stay at your camp site.....alot of people are interested in purchasing land there and opening something so you have to do something with a difference.

    Default More Pictures of Macaneta !

    Hi All,
    Good to hear of the dreams of of potential investors in Macaneta, 6 even 7 out of 8 of the suggested requirements of a perfect campsite are already available on Macaneta, just go and investigate. I just want to say to Biscuit, Snuns, Moz Fan, nothing is just straight forward simple in Moz. Do your homework thoroughly before venturing into buying land. Mozambique is known for undiscovered landmines, even the business / Investment world, there are lots of "landmines" (Don't ask me to explain, just be wide awake !)

    Here are some more pictures of Macaneta

    Default Investing in Macaneta

    The investment with the best return anywhere in Southern Africa waits to be grabbed up in Macaneta. Start another FERRY BOAT SERVICE, operating more than one ferry. a Development boom is predicted for the very near future and the current ferry cannot manage already and the local government has'nt got the money to replace it. You don't even have to have the money, find foreign investors and run the project for them.

    Start a filling station and workshop, rent out quads and beach buggies, run a decent ski-boat charter, etc, etc,. Go spend time on the Island and you will see all the oppertunities.
