Discover paradise on the Southern Mozambique Coast at the award-winning Dugong Beach Lodge, a trending eco-destination inviting visitors with a green conscience to escape on holiday for a few days in the 30 000-ha pristine Vilanculos Coastal & Wildlife Sanctuary. Choose one of our Voyage2Africa honeymoon package deals to make the most of this solitary and magical destination where marine and land species are protected in a vast conservation area. The unique lodge is even named after the rarest ocean creature in these parts, the Dugong, or sea cow!
Beautiful luxury accommodation in 14 elegant, air-conditioned chalets leads directly down to the beach from glorious private decks furnished with welcoming day beds. Romance is highlighted in two of the chalets featuring their private plunge pools and all guests can request dreamy private dinners on their decks to absorb the majestic views and starry skies overhead.
Dugong Beach Lodge is so remote that power is generated from both solar and generator sources and these remain functional until guests retire to bed. Water comes from a local source and is safe to drink and guests gather around the dining table for meals or sit out on the deck for a delightful lantern-lit affair, or on the jetty with the ocean lapping below. It’s a great idea to enjoy beach picnics and dinners, a true Dugong Lodge tradition, as staff go to great lengths to make these excursions romantic, decadent and truly meaningful.
Arrival and departure at Dugong Beach Lodge are tide dependent so be aware that boat transfers from Vilanculos to Dugong Beach Lodge take 30-40 minutes (depending on the tide) – be ready to wade into the water up to your knees! This boat ride is packed with breathtaking scenery and the sighting of dolphins, whales and turtles if lucky.
