Overview Of Resort

Discover the tranquillity and unspoiled paradise of Dugong Beach Lodge; set within the boundaries of The Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary, the first privately managed Specially Protected National Park in Mozambique. Located on 30 000 hectares of pristine marine and wildlife territory, it provides a unique ‘Beach and Wilderness’ experience in a hidden corner of sub-tropical Africa. This diverse eco-system of wilderness and wetland, with its powder white beaches and crystal clear water is host to a magnificent array of fish, dolphin and very importantly, the nearly extinct “Dugong”. Shallow and deepwater reefs reveal beautiful creatures such as the leatherback turtle, sailfish, manta ray, to name a few. Big deep-sea game fishing of marlin and barracuda is truly spectacular and the large flocks of flamingos and pelicans are a sight to behold.

Dugong Lodge, perched right on the edge of the beach is an idyllic setting with ten luxury tents built on raised decks in the shade of Msasa Trees with Jecka grass canopies. The lounge and restaurant on raised Mahogany timber decks with a jetty jutting out into the protected Vilanculos Bay , afford one breath taking views of the ever-changing colours and hues of the water dotted with the white sails of ancient dhows.



10 luxury Beach Chalets and 2 Luxury Villas. Each chalet has an en-suite bathroom and a separate outside shower, and is equipped with hair-dryer, fan and mosquito net, all open onto a private patio. The Villas have 2 individual en-suite bedrooms and a private plunge pool.
