we're going green

The world is currently facing more environmental challenges than ever. Countries like Mozambique are among the most vulnerable to climate changes, therefore it is of upmost importance that we do our best to reduce our environmental impact. We've been making some changes at Mozambeat Motel to in order to give our guests the best possible experience and move toward a sustainable future.

We have made it our goal to go plastic free. At this stage we still face many challenges with often limited supply options in the area, but this doesn't stop us from doing our best to minimise our reliance on plastic and reduce our carbon footprint. If you have any questions or suggestions we are always open to improvement.

We also organise monthly beach clean-ups, which you are welcome to participate in!


Our amenities are eco-friendly. We've done away with plastic bottles in your room and replaced them with glass bottles filled with fresh, clean water from our bore! Our onsite tap water is clean for drinking, so no need to worry about buying plastic water bottles, you can refill! There are also bamboo toothbrushes as well as refillable lotion, shampoo and conditioner bottles, so you still get to experience the finer things!


To reduce each room's energy usage we remind our guests to turn off their air-conditioning when they leave the room. Mozambique is still a long way from having green energy, so this is very important! We also try to minimise our daily cleaning service to reduce water waste and the use of cleaning products. Of course, if you have any special requests we're more than happy to help!


One of the great things about Tofo is having access to fresh local produce. At Mozambeat we have our own veggie garden which supplies the kitchen. Many of our staff also grow veggies at home and we make sure to buy these as often as we can. This takes the plastic, transport and mass agriculture out of our vegetables - plus they taste delicious!

We also have our own pigs! Which means our food waste is naturally processed. Anything they don't eat goes into the compost which we use on our garden. Food waste is one of the biggest contributors to climate change – bio-waste that breaks down in landfill and isn't composted creates methane, a gas that is lethal in the atmosphere.

All takeaway orders are served in biodegradable packaging and when we shop in the market we take our own bags and do our best to select local produce. We encourage our guests to bring their own bags when visiting the market!


In the bar at Mozambeats we separate cans, plastic and bottles so they can be recycled at Tofo's local recycling plant. We do not offer plastic water bottles or straws but rather use reusable glass straws, locally produced bamboo straws and biodegradable paper straws. Some of the world's most unique and beautiful marine life is in the Tofo region and by reducing plastic waste we aim to avoid any unnecessary impacts on the ecosystem.
