Dunes De Dovela Eco Lodge


... is located close to the town of Inharrime in the Inhambane area in the Southern region of Mozambique.

This rather pleasant facility is remotely located almost an hour down a rough sandy track from the main road and set up on vegetated dunes above the ocean. Open-sided public areas contain modest lounge and dining areas.

Guest accommodation is in a just three lovely circular rooms, reached by a network of sandy pathways and perched high up on the dunes. Further accommodation is provided in rather cool dome tented rooms with shared outside bathrooms, representing really good value for money.

Activities include swimming and snorkelling in the natural 'swimming pool' created by the fringing reef, ocean safaris, whale-watching during the Jun/Oct season, diving from the base at Zavora some 12km to the south, guided nature walks, kayaking on a scenic lake just inland and village visits.

Dunes De Dovela is a really pleasant option, one of the nicest in the country, owner hosted and well connected with the local communities. A simple barefoot experience which is good value for money for this part of the world.

Access is the main downside. The nearest town is Inhambane, around two hours to the north, but flights in and out of here are notoriously unreliable. We most commonly connect from the town of Vilanculos to the north, which is directly connected by air with the Kruger area of South Africa. However from there it is a road journey of four to six hours down to the lodge.
