Continuing dive education - developing and improving diver knowledge and skills is a passion and our extremely experienced and seasoned PADI instructors provide sound advice and guidance to make sure you perfect your buoyancy and maximise your efficiency under water.

Divers assemble their equipment prior to each dive, at the storage and washing facility, which is then taken and loaded onto the boats. The divers can either take the short walk to the boat, or await the vehicle to give them a ride. After dives, equipment is washed, hung up and stored by the fully trained staff. For photographers and videographers, camera wash-bins are situated next to the restaurant area. A highly competent boat skipper, the most accomplished in the area will ensure your comfort and safety at sea and make certain of the right drop!

Medical oxygen is available on the dive boat and in the unlikely event of any emergency; divers can rest assured that we are equipped to deal with most cases. Rescue protocols are in place for evacuations, but we strongly encourage all of our divers to be members of Divers Alert Network for added peace of mind. It is time to pack your dive gear and head for Ponta Mamoli where our diving is relaxed, hassle free and exclusive - the only pressure is atmospheric!Dive planning is done at the end of each day, in and around the restaurant and pub area.

Rich in history, the main facilities including restaurant and lounge deck, bar and swimming pool all overlook the bay and are located in the original old Portuguese homestead built adjacent to a man made channel excavated to link Lake Mamoli with the sea.

Reservation of the local area is a prime objective with precision planning and consideration given to protecting the environment to retain the natural appeal. It is for this reason that quad bikes, off road motor bikes and jet skis are not allowed. The surrounding locale is a varied mosaic of rare ecosystems - magnificent unspoilt expanses of beach, endemic rich woody grasslands, dry savannas, swamp forests, freshwater coastal lakes and floodplains characterised by expanses of reed beds, bulrushes and papyrus.

In the nearby Maputo Special Reserve, previously endangered Elephant populations as a result of indiscriminate hunting pressures during the war are increasing at a pleasing rate and now estimated at well over 200. Elephant activity has recently been noted within two kilometres of the Resort. Hippo, crocodiles and a variety of small buck including red duiker, suni, reedbuck and inyala can be seen on scenic drives to local sunset spots like Lake Piti, a massive freshwater lake.

The location has been recommended as an important bird area - IBA due to the presence of an increasing variety of bird life including near endemic and rare bird species. Extraordinarily rich in diversity with varying topography and a multitude of marine animals to observe, the extensive coral reefs at Ponta Mamoli are pristine and the diving is exclusive - we can guarantee no other boats or dive groups even at the ever popular Bass City!

Early development at Ponta Mamoli can be traced back to the 1940’s when a titanium mine existed in the adjacent wetland. It was for this reason that an opening to the sea was carved through the dunes to allow water into the area at high tide to enable the extraction process.

In the early 1970’s investors developed an elaborate camping resort. A number of ablution blocks were built - since converted to staff cottages, warehouses and water reservoirs erected and even a tarred road was constructed to nearby Zitundo, the local administration village. Ready to open to guests with everything immaculately in place, the entire scheme was sabotaged by the civil revolution in Mozambique and subsequent guerrilla war that left Mamoli vandalised, plundered and derelict for the next 32 years. However the evidence of these brick structures and tar roads still exist and today and one can still see the remnants of some of the ablution blocks, dining facilities, and warehouse and staff quarters but from a different viewpoint.

In 2002, the spirit of this Mozambique paradise was revived .Thirty two years later; we merged the bay’s beauty and its original Portuguese architecture with modern timber decks and fashionable resort facilities. The spirit of Mamoli has once again been brought to life through the variety of activities offered by Ponta Mamoli Resort.
