Dunes de Dovela ..
Dunes de Dovela is Southern Mozambique’s only eco lodge surrounded by virgin coastal woodland. Situated about 400 kilometers north of Maputo and 80 kilometers south of Inhambane, we offer seven all-inclusive* tented luxury suites and bungalows overlooking the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean. Our restaurant boasts a varied assortment of local fruits, vegetables and seafood in the most exquisite fusion of Mozambican and French culinary traditions.
The Dunes is at the center of our 100-hectares conservation area and is full of flora, fauna and wildlife native to Mozambique that has been preserved in this protected piece of coastline. Between the forest, dunes, lake and neighboring Dovela village, we have counted 262 unique bird species, 30 trees, vervet monkeys, mongoose, monitors, bush babies and more. In a malaria-free setting with no predators, you can explore the woodlands with our guided walks or on your own and from our bird Hide in the heart of the forest.
Our stretch of Indian Ocean is home to sea turtles, manta rays, whale sharks and of course, the majestic humpback whales. From July to October we offer unobstructed views of humpback whales migration where you can watch dozens of whales breach and play while dining, sipping a glass of wine on your veranda deck or relaxing on the beach.
You won’t find a more secluded yet easily accessible luxury eco-lodge in Southern Mozambique. Come experience the tranquility of the Dunes!
