Nhanombe Lodge is set in a beautiful location. Overall, we had a positive experience, but sadly this was clouded by mis-management and poor organization. The resort does not have consistent credit card facilities despite offering the option of settling your booking payment upon arrival and allowing you to run up a tab including all meals, drinks ad scuba diving costs....

Hi Jade, I would like to thank you for your feedback. It is always good to hear back from our guests about what they liked and experiences that were not so pleasant so that we can make the good amazing and the not so good great. I am surprised to see this review written at least 2 weeks after your...

What an incredible team running this gem of a place. From coffee delivered to the very comfortable chalet by Rod the owner, to J setting up a yoga session just for me, to Damian's enthusiasm as a dive master, everything during our few days here was fantastic. Sunday night is pizza night, so we got to meet some of the...

Most probably the nicest lodge in Zavora. Various individual, very comfortable chalets. Has all self-catering amenities but also a great kitchen and bar! Really peaceful, great for a rest but also great for hanging out if you're up to it. The Zavora beach is truly beautiful, much less crowded than other more popular ones but certainly not less perfect. Good...

Epic is the word that comes to mind when thinking back to our experience at Nhanombe Lodge. Kirsty and Jean get the perfect balance between professionalism and thinking you are visiting old friends. Their love for Mozambique is so evident, and aim at sharing that same passion with their guests that come driving/diving through. We planned to stay one night...

What an amazing adventure we had at Zavora Lodge with Jean and Kirsty. They made us feel so welcome and went out of their way to include us making us apart of their family. They were professional and were well informed of the reefs, marine life, land and took us out and about to explore the town. We got to...

Small resort with private bar, pizza oven, in-house eatery and a shirt walk over the dune to a pristine beach. The boma was great for our group's communal activities and the option to sleep on a special outside bed (complete with mozzie net) was very exotic!

Good value for money, fridges work, water works, good Mosquito nets. Love the day beds. Friendly management that come chat to you on a daily basis. My only gripe would be a little more parking area for boats but we made a plan.
