Perched at the far end of an attractive, long stretch of white sand beach on a peninsula just south of Vilanculos is the serene Dugong Beach Lodge. The peninsula has been declared a wildlife sanctuary whilst the impossibly clear sea waters are part of the Bazaruto Marine National Park making is area flush with wildlife and sea life including turtles, manta ray, dolphins and the close to extension Atlantic dugong, plus numerous species of birds, fish and corals.
Dugong Beach Lodge, a simply beautiful resort mixes relaxation and peacefulness with activeness and tradition. Laze by the pool sipping an ice cold beverage whilst enjoying the warm African sun or enjoying a meal from either the buffet or A la Carte menu. Feeling adventurous try windsurfing, kayaking or scuba diving. Dhow cruises (a traditional sailing boat) are a superb way to see the coastline and watch the sunset. The 14 luxurious chalets each offer air-conditioning, direct access to the beach and their own private deck with secluded canopy for privacy and evening dining.
Direct flights from Johannesburg and Kruger National Park fly into Vilanculos taking 1 hour 40 minutes and 50 minutes respectively. From Vilanculos a boat transfer takes you the rest of the way. This is a great way to start your trip and may even spot dolphins and turtles.
