On arrival, we almost were sent away at the gate because we didn't have a reservation. After some discussion, he just let us through. At the restaurant, Sergio showed us the camping area, which is not more than a big concrete parking lot without any shade. Bathrooms are clean, but no warm water. Nobody could tell us about possible activities in the area or on the plantation. I think they didn't really want to have us... Not very welcoming, but still a good overnight campsite (definitely not for more than one night).

We arrived late, because off a problem with the Car. But we were happily welcomed.

A gem of a place! We were very warmly welcomed and decided to take a room so we could have our bed linen laundered. The included breakfast probably cost more than the $20 room (for two of us). We recommend you treat yourselves to dinner here. As previously mentioned the food is both delicious and abundant. We had grouper one night and octopus the next as well as pirpiri chicken and sole. All equally delicious. All meals served with potatoes, rice, black beans and matoke bananas. This farm is really worth supporting and having a couple of treat days. Birding tours in the nearby Kumbira Forest can also be organised. It poured with rain so we didn't manage to do this but would be well worth it.

We spent one night here and enjoyed ourselves. The drive here is awesome through thick forests, hillside villages and with snippets of great scenery. We arrived at 5pm and met the owner, who unfortunately doesn’t speak English but seemed very friendly. We’d heard the restaurant was expensive but we decided to give it a go regardless. The menu is only in Portuguese so we asked for wifi to help us translate but the one staff member who speaks a little English was very odd and wouldn’t give us it. There’s no signal so we basically let him pick for us and hoped for the best. We had drinks on the deck overlooking the forest which was pleasant whilst we waited for dinner. To our surprise when dinner arrived it was HUGE! Definitely one meal could have been shared between the two of us. A huge steak with rice, veg, chips and crisp type things and huge a pot of black beans (and a bread basket!) was 6500kwanza and was really delicious. We’ve paid similar prices for a lot worse and a lot less in Angola. The bathrooms are clean and pleasant and we had hot showers. The next day we organised a walk (with great difficulty without google translate). We walked around the nearby village into the hills for 2.5 hours with a guide. It was a very pleasant morning. We think the location, food and facilities were really good here and didn’t mind the concrete pad that you camp on given the rest 😄 only downside was the lack of wifi.

The drive here was beautiful. However the camping is on a concrete parking lot without a clear view, with machinery and gravel piled up. Possibly the least scenic part of the plantation! The grounds are very nice and people were friendly but we decided that we would prefer a better view/no concrete etc. We didn’t look at the rooms but all the buildings were pretty and the rest of the grounds beautifully maintained.

Nice surroundings, had a quiet night. Lots of staff hanging around watching us. Toilets were available but were often in the slow process of cleaning so we couldn't use them. Water pressure was intermittent, seems like a pump was off but no one was able to turn it back on. Owner was not there and staff only speaks Portuguese. No internet signal. Nice for a night. Restaurant was expensive, we didn't order anything. Some cute dogs running around. Space for lots of vehicles to camp on cement lot. Charcoal available for barbecue. Swimming pool was very dirty and unusable.

Beautiful and very interesting place (Coffee plantation with 22 rooms) in spectacular surroundings. The owners Odette and Mario and their staff are very kind. Early morning, we did a 2 hours walk with Sergio, to watch birds
and to explore the plantation.
Dinner and breakfast was delicious. Nice rooms with A/C for Kwanza 18.000, which was worth the price. It is also possible to camp on the parking lot.

Nice resort in nice surroundings. Comprehensive menu. But very expensive. Tea, coke and two small sandwiches costing KZ3,500. Not for overlanders on a budget! Lesson learnt

I did get my MAN truck into the parking.
