Kwalala Lodge is an oasis of relaxation and adventure on the shores of Nacala Bay in Northern Mozambique. Designed with you in mind, the one-of-a-kind stone lodges and activity centre, provide a world class view of the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean as they cascade over coral banks into indigo depths. The Lodge offers a myriad of activities and customized adventures designed to make your stay truly unforgettable! Nestled in a secluded cove with its own marine reserve, the Lodge provides the perfect vantage point from which to watch the ocean going vessels cruise into Nacala Port, the local dhow's criss-cross the bay, the tuna whip the water into a feeding frenzy, or the humpback whales pass by on their spring migration. The Pelago Adventure Centre, with its friendly and highly qualified staff, is the ideal base from which to discover the largely unexplored underwater landscapes and white beaches of Nacala Bay. The Thirsty Whale Restaurant and Bar offers something to refresh and whet your appetite. Whether you're a business traveler in need of a 'home away from home' or a family looking for adventure off the beaten track, Kwalala Lodge is a special place to make lasting memories and forge new friendships.
