Inhambane is probably one of the more popular areas of Mozambique. It is not all that far to drive to, and there are regular flights from OR Tambo as well as from Lanseria Airport into Inhambane Airport. Although there are many resorts offering camping or self-catering, we do specialise in the more upmarket resorts only.

The most upmarket resort in this area is the Flamingo Bay Water Lodge, which is built on stilts in the crystal clear waters of Inhambane Bay. This lodge is unique and the only one of it’s kind in Africa, and is home to flocks of flamingos, tropical fish and the very rare dugong.

The luxury air-conditioned water chalets are spacious and well appointed with wide opening sliding doors onto a private balcony. Sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and boating may be enjoyed directly from each chalet.

The main building and chalets are connected by wooden walkways where golf carts are available to ferry guests.

Flamingo Bay Water Lodge is a wonderful honeymoon destination. The chalets are situated away from the main building, adding to the experience of tranquility and serenity.

More family oriented, Barra Lodge Beach Resort is situated on a beautiful wide stretch of beach. The lodge is nestled amongst groves of coconut trees and the warm Indian Ocean offers safe bathing all year round.

The traditional Casitas are made of thatch, brick and reeds creating a charming atmosphere, and can accommodate up to 4 guests each. Most have sea views and all are a stone’s throw from the beach. The Casitas have 1 double bed and 2 single beds as well as en-suite bathroom (shower only).

Barra Lodge caters for families and is geared towards fun and activities for the whole family. Activities include scuba-diving, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, quad biking, catamaran sailing, horse riding and various excursions.
