We arrived at low tide and had to walk a long distance to the house. However it was all worth it. Friendly service, Relaxation and great sunsets all added towards one of the best breaks we ever had. Cannot wait to visit again.

A little piece of paradise. It might be easier to get to via boat from Maputo but the 3 hour drive through the elephant park was amazing - you need a big 4 wheel drive though. Some lodges overlook the best beach I've ever seen and the beach bar will feature on the cover of a magazine one day. Hettie... More

An overall fantastic stay. Hetta made us feel welcome from day one. All the staff are friendly and very helpful. The most beautiful place for outdoor lovers. Absolutely nothing to complain about. We will definitely visit Nonghuane Lodge again.

We arrived at Nhonguane Lodge with our own 7m ski boat from Ponto do Ouro. First impression of Nhonguane Lodge was the welcome smiles and willing hands of the staff taking us to House 6. We found the perfect island family holiday with all the amenities of a "home away from home" at House 6. With our own boat we... More

A whole bunch if us took the largest house for a few days. The house had a great open layout and everything that you need (including plunge pool) with maid service twice daily. The lodge is on the inner side of the peninsula which makes it more sheltered than others, but it's only a short walk from the gap to... More

Nhonguane Lodge is a good place to stay in Santa Maria. The house where we stayed (House 6) is perfect for a big family. The only reason why I rated Nhonguane 4 out of 5 is because of the bathrooms and location. The bathrooms are good, the cleaning lady does an excellent job, but it was a bit hard to... More

We stayed at Nhonguane in a 2 bedroomed house - which actually is huge with lots of nice open plan space for the kitchen/dining/lounge area, and had 2 beds outside. The house was fully equipped and it was great to have air conditioning and hot water in the rooms (both were ensuite). The lodge is in a beautiful spot to... More

Thrip From Matola To the Lodge was long but Exciting, When We arrived at the lodge We found the The Camp site exceeding by far our expectations, and well layed out, it is by far better than most South African camp lodges. The Lodge itself is breath taking with the over look on to the Island and Beatifull ocean. Hetta... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in House 6, although we will remember the trip getting there long after we have forgotten the holiday!! We drove from Kozi border post through the western entrance into the Elephant Park. Two of our convoy were towing wide axle trailers. Do not attempt this route towing a trailer which does not follow the track... More
