Dugong Beach Lodge Mozambique Dugong Beach Lodge is situated in the idyllic Vilanculos Wildlife Sanctuary. This sanctuary covers 30 000 hectares of pristine marine and wildlife territory. Guests at this luxurious Mozambique lodge are treated to a diverse eco-system of bush, wetland, white powder white beaches and crystal clear waters.

This Mozambique accommodation is set in on the beach providing guests with spectacular views. Guests stay in luxury chalets and villas overlooking the scenic ocean. A generator is used for electricity due to Dugong Beach Lodge's remoteness. The generator runs during the morning and again at sunset for a few hours.

Guests can enjoy delicious meals at the restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. An island style bar serves a wide range of drinks, making it the ideal place to watch the sun set.

The water surrounding Dugong Beach Lodge is ideal for divers and snorkeling. Shallow and deep water reefs reveal beautiful creatures such as Green and Leatherback Turtle, Sailfish, and 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.

Just 10 luxuriously appointed framed tented chalets with hardwood floors and Jekka thatched grass canopies offer an understated elegance and simplicity.

Vilanculos is approximately 700km north of Maputo. Daily flights are available from OR Tambo International to Vilanculos. The trip from the Airport to the boat takes approximately 10 min and guests are transported in a 14-seater minibus. The boat transfer to Dugong Beach Lodge takes approximately 45 minutes.

Due to the remoteness of Dugong Beach Lodge power is obtained from a combination of solar and generator power.

Limited essential lighting & ceiling fan can still operate after the generator has been switched off due to solar power.

A typical day at Dugong Lodge
On arrival at Vilanculos airport, guests are met by our representative. A short road transfer takes you to the beach where you board a boat for the transfer to Dugong Beach Lodge. These boat transfers can be adventurous and it is advisable that casual clothing, open shoes/sandals and a light wind-breaker are worn. At times, due to weather conditions, guests may get wet (rain suits are provided on the boat) and are required to remove footwear to gain access to the boat.

Our policy at Dugong Beach Lodge is to allow our guests as much freedom regarding meal times. As there are no set times for meals, your day can begin as early or as late as you wish. Breakfast and lunch are served on the deck overlooking the beach and jetty. Dinner may be served on the beach with the warm sand between your toes (subject to weather and tidal conditions)

Pure relaxation is the order of the day. Picnic on a deserted island, enjoy leisurely walks on a perfect white sand beach with translucent waters or sip cocktails at the poolside or under a thatched canopy on the beach.
