We accidentally found Casa Dunas in November 2012. I've subsequently been back twice . . can't get enough of the place. A truly magnificent house that has you stuck between wanting to keep the treasure a secret and trying to figure out who next to bring to this piece of magic overlooking the Indian Ocean! We've traveled to the lodge...

Visiting from Australia, my wife, two adult children and I stayed at this piece of paradise in April last year and had the most stunning and relaxing experience. The location in Mozambique and the facilities, backed up by great support staff, are simply unique and magnificent. Days spent relaxing on the deck overlooking an endless ocean, sitting at or in...

About the neighborhood
Inhaca Island is a small-inhabited island, lying just 37 km off the Mozambican capital of Maputo and positioned at the entrance to Delagoa Bay. It's location to Casa Dunas is excellent - the island itself is seperated from the main penninsula by 'Hells Gate' - a channel that feeds the greater Maputo Bay.

The island also features large areas of unspoiled evergreen forest and bush land. Large areas of its land and shores have been protected as natural reserve since 1976, providing a unique and pristine environment, which can be enjoyed by taking one of the excellent two- to three-day hiking trails that are available for the avid walker.

All told, Inhaca has some 100 km of coastline, much of it having some of the best coral reefs in the Mozambique Channel. Snorkeling conditions...

How to get there
Most international flights to/from Mozambique use Maputo's airport (IATA: MPM). LAM [1] operate a high number of domestic flights within Mozambique. TAP flies non-stop from Lisbon. SAA [2] operates two flights a day from Johannesburg to Maputo and SA Airlink has five flights a week from both Durban and Cape Town.

Most visitors to Casa Dunas make use of charter services out of Maputo Airport and fly directly to the Machangulo Airstrip where they are collected in 4x4 vehicles and taken to the beach house.
