This place was really disappointing and is certainly not 5 star. We booked a multi accommodation stay in Mozambique as we wanted a blend of simplicity and luxury. The first 5 days were in Blue Footprints Eco lodge which was amazing, the remaining five days were intended to be at Flamingo Bay but we left after 3 nights and returned... More

The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful, the dining service was excellent, the food was great, the sunsets from the cabin’s deck (120) at high tide was stunning and the care taken to ensure my engagement plans and all the other activities where met, was impeccably planned by the manager, Aldo. The arrangements felt effortless from the initial inquiry to... More

Our honeymoon to Italy was postponed so we decided to spend three days At Flamingo Bay as a consolation. Initially I thought the package was quite pricey , but I was soon happy to part with my money when I saw thus paradise. We spent most of our time basking in the sun on our private deck and enjoying complimentary... More

I went with my wife an a friend couple. The atmosphere of the place, the food, the cottages and the place is simple amazing. It would be great to keep it this way. Having a drink at the swimming pool at dawn (ask for a Fernando) it`s a great experience.Visiting the town of Inhambane will give you a good idea... More

Apart from the lovely atmosphere.. The friendly staff n lovely food.. The place had a lovely relaxing feel about it.. As the sun rose the blue clear waters glittered as if paying homage to the sun.The water gently rippled under the standing chalets submerging them with its love. At a distance a fishing boat was getting ready for the day.As... More

I'll start out by saying that this was the second stage of our 4 week "My Big Birthday" trip. First stage resulted in a torn ligament/tendon when I was stepping into a game drive truck, so my perceptions 4 days post tear were, I am sorry to say, likely to be biased somewhat, by my pain (and my hubby had...

Our Friends got married at Flamingo Bay Lodge. Everything was top-notch. I must compliment all the staff - you guys we're great, extremely professional and nothing was too much to ask - especially the F&B Manager. Second compliment must go to the Chef's at Flamingo. The food was glorious, and the drinks selection was extensive. I cannot remember in which... More

We loved staying at this resort. A lot of the resorts in Mozambique are over crowded and do not allow you some peace and quiet. Here however you have the choice.

If you want to rest, this location is perfect. I really recommend taking a canoe and going to mangroves. If you're lucky, you'll see some Flamingos. More than 3 days here can be boring, but you can easily go to Tofo Beach, witch is pretty close. There you will find a very spectacular pretty wild ocean beach and a very... More

We had a wonderful time at Flamingo Bay. The location is unparalleled on the Inhambane Bay smack bang in the Tidal estuary with mangroves all around.
