Hi, I am Sisi, the founder and owner of Machangulo Villas. Travel has always been my passion. I love exploring unusual destinations worldwide and giving recommendations based on my experiences.

Over time, my wondering nature found a home in Mozambique. Having run my hotel in Tofo for over a decade, I have valuable knowledge about tourism and hospitality in this incredible East African country. The cultural diversity, exquisite beaches, fantastic weather and magnificent properties make it a holiday haven. All these elements led to the founding of Machangulo Villas in 2021.

I am extremely proud of my team, who passionately work beside me. Together we create magic by offering quality information to captivate the essence of this pristine holiday destination.

Inspired by our magnificent properties and exclusive remote location, we go the extra mile to make every trip memorable and unique. I ensure all our properties and experiences are approved by exceptional standards. We understand that minor details make the most significant difference.

With my team, the commitment of the Machangulo Service Center, The Machangulo Concierge, the villa owners, and the devoted staff, I strive to offer an extensive villa portfolio for the like-minded traveler to lavish and love.

We have exceptional guest testimonials! Hear about their experiences:

The ride was quite adventurous for us Europeans who are used to well-maintained roads, but holy moly it brings you to the most beautiful place on earth. Daily beach walks on empty beaches, with our feet in the turquoise waters, hearing the churping sound of birds whilst finally catching up with my books, being surrounded by animals and eating fresh seafood every day served by the most attentive staff. This is my definition of a holiday! And yes, the road to it was completely worth it, but next time we will go by boat. Thank you team Machangulo Villas for an absolute fantastic stay, our family loved every second, until we meet again!

Machangulo Villas provide a very personal and professional support with each booking, from the beginning to the end of our much loved holiday in Machangulo.
