Coral Lodge, Mozambique

In a private nature reserve - amidst baobab trees, wetland dunes, mangroves and gorgeous beaches - you’ll find a sort of personal nirvana. Welcome to 15 degrees south (latitude), 41 degrees east (longitude) – an area called Varanda, on an untouched and completely unspoiled peninsula in northern Mozambique.

It is here that you will be able to indulge in the perfect balance of the contemporary luxury of a modern African beach resort, combined with an authentic Mozambique experience. Expect fascinating natural tours and wildlife exploration. Expect to be genuinely welcomed in local Macau communities. Expect to be thrilled by watersports and diving in the warmth of the Indian Ocean.

Coral Lodge will introduce you to it all, and more. Local markets, 12th century Arab settlements, Portuguese forts, African cookery classes…
