|Destination: ||Inhaca Island|
Machangulo Beach Lodge is located at the centre of the grand battle, the channel between Inhaca Island and the dunes of the Santa Maria Peninsula. The Southern Mozambican coastline plays host to a unique battle between the open Indian Ocean and the estuaries of Maputo Bay. The ever present conflict between tides energizes the atmosphere and adds to the magic of this unspoiled and mysterious place.
The Lodge overlooks this magic; endless white beaches, pristine and untouched dune forests, estuaries bursting with life and eternally wide open ocean “ all in an energetic harmony. Hidden away amid the dunes and hiding amongst the forests, Machangulo Beach Lodge has a warm and inviting atmosphere, keeping its guests calmly protected from the epic nature outside.
Your boat journey through the endless channels of the bay ends on the Lodges secluded beach. From here the beauty and magic will become more and more real. Walkways snake through the cool forest and bring you to the Lodges main building, inviting you to relax and become part of the calm. Your cabin is just around the corner and the staff of Machangulo Beach Lodge is at your service to ensure the adventure youve been hoping for.
Property AmenitiesMachangulo Beach Lodge features 8 private luxury chalets. Each chalet has an on-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, mosquito nets and private deck. Five chalets have a breathtaking view of the ocean and Inhaca Island, and the other three chalets are intimately situated amongst the pristine Mozambique dune forest. All the chalets are connected by walkways and staircases to the main buildings and the beach.
Machangulo Beach Lodge?s striking main building includes a large inviting lounge with bar area and large dining area. Hidden behind the main building is the Boma area where evenings are spent beside the fire while enjoying the tranquil Mozambican nights, discussing the day?s catch and strategizing about tomorrow?s big one!
