When you are at Mousuni Island Backpackers’ camp we give you the best opportunity to stay on a beach and make new friends while sharing stories. Campfire with chicken barbeque is the best part of our camp to enjoy and strengthen your friendship. Witness most beautiful sunrise and sunset and walk on the beach under a million stars.
You can join our team and explore the local area, mainly the fisherman colony which is badly affected by sea level rise and an adventurous journey to the mangrove area. You can also plan a bird watching walk.
Football, guitar and cycle will definitely add excitement to your stay.
Being an integral part of responsible tourism, Izifiso always focus on lending a helping hand in developing the places they touch. In Mousuni Island, Izifiso is employing only the local people for all the areas where manpower is needed. This helps in woman empowerment and overall betterment of the livelihood of the people, making them more confident.
We also try to work for education of local children with an idea to set an educational center in the area in near future.
