The last two months several projects have been undertaken at Marimba Secret Gardens.
To accommodate our four men staff, we’ve built two round huts. Each of them having a base size of 28 square meters. The houses are built the traditional way, by using local building material as wood, reed and the typical grass roofing. Located in the back of the land, close to the fruit trees plantation and the vegetables garden, the set-up is made for them and their families to feel at home.
Fencing the land was one of our lasts steps before starting with the construction works of the first guest’s accommodation. The fence was a big task and required a lot of preparation in advance. Clearing a straight line from milestone to milestone over a distance of nearly 1000 meters through the bush was already a big challenge – but for the bush not to grow again, it was also necessary to dig out all the roots of it. An incredibly tiring and hard work as you can imagine.
300 poles, 8000 meters of barbwire, 1000 kg of cement, 3 truck loads of pebble stones, 45 meters of iron rod, 1800 liters of water and uncountable amounts of hagraves and nails were just enough to have a proper fence built.
The Sea View Parkway
A 25 meter high natural duna seperates our pristine beachfront from the rest of the land. In the front section just before you start walking down to beach we are working on a Sea View Parkway. Besides numerous of Coconut Palm Trees and a stunning view over the Bazaruto Archipelago and the whole bay the newly built shade right at the hillside make the Parkway already now enjoyable.
To provide a constant elecricity supply a diesel generator now supports our solar systems. Even though there’s mostly sunny days at Marimba Secret Gardens, work also has to go on on rainy ones. This makes a generator absolutely necessary.
