A government run safari lodge inland from Beira whose attitude towards tourists is unencouraging. And there really isn't much reason for tourists to go. An unfortunate aftermath of the civil war in Mozambique is that there is very little game, particularly by comparison with its neighbours South Africa and Zambia. I am told that anything remotely edible or sellable was shot from helicopters to feed the Cuban, Russian and local soldiers, or to sell in the case of ivory. And elephants remember; they haven't come back. Another result of those years is that the communist government won, and still now, in a government run camp like this, the management are much more concerned with the well being of their many staff than their guests!
