Naara Eco Lodge and Spa
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, rather unusually for this part of the world, is set up on vegetated dunes above the inland Lake Nhambavale rather than overlooking the ocean, which is a couple of kilometres to the south. This position is much more sheltered and provides an interesting and peaceful change from the beachfront lodges.
Open-sided public areas contain pleasant lounge and dining areas, plus more indoor spaces including games and television rooms. Outside there is a nice swimming pool, a pleasant spa and decks out over the lake.
Guest accommodation is in ten very pleasant tented rooms each with indoor and outdoor bathrooms.
Activities include snorkelling, kite-surfing, surfing, ocean safaris, whale-watching during the Jun/Oct season, guided nature walks, sea kayaking, canoeing on the lake and village visits.
Naara Lodge is a really pleasant option and really good value for money.
Access is the main downside. The nearest airports are Inhambane to the north and Maputo to the south, both around 3-4 hours away by road.
