After returning home recently (January 2012) from an 8 day stay at Nhonguane Lodge, I must take exception to the above comments. I cannot believe that somebody would complain about accommodation because their child got bitten by something in the night. IT IS AFRICA, if bugs bother you, you shouldn't be vacationing in Africa.
After a grueling drive (our trailers collapsed en route), we were ecstatic to find this oasis on the shores of Maputo Bay. For us, it was paradise. White sandy beaches, air-conditioned bedrooms, a beautiful pool, and an exquisite kitchen. The staff were incredibly friendly. To Leisa J who did nothing but moan above, how on earth can you complain about the fluctuations of the tide? We used this time to explore the area or walk the few minutes around the peninsula to the mighty Indian Ocean, and then did our swimming and snorkelling when the tide came in. We caught our own fish, or bought from the locals who came to find us. The owners of the resort have become close friends because of the wonderful, unforgettable time we had there. Africa is about adventure. If you cannot handle it, Leisa J, do not ruin it for the those that can. The Nhonguane Lodge rates on my top ten destinations, and I am a travel show presenter.
