Only 4 hours from Maputo - this is the perfect weekend getaway. Affordable rooms. Best customer service I've ever had in Mozambique. Rooms are comfortable for two people and have an awesome outdoor shower (although I think some rooms had better water pressure than other rooms). During a rain or heavy wind, the tent makes a lot of noise. I personally love this, but some people don't sleep well during these conditions. The food is good. I ate fish one night and a steak the second (I wouldn't order the steak again). Be sure to take a 4x4. You need it to get up to the lodge and to the beach once you are there. They have a car available, but I like having my own transportation. The beach is 10 minutes away and totally secluded - absolutely nothing there. Very serene. Bring your beach towel. Take a kayak out on the lake for a couple hours. Hang by the infinity pool overlooking the beautiful lake. Take a nap in the hammock. Don't forget this place is a "eco-lodge". Each room is solar powered so use electricity sparingly and be patient when electricity is not available.
