Dunes De Dovela

The Eco Lodge Dunes de Dovela is on a doorstep of Inhambane, close to Zavora, between Maputo and Vilanculos in Mozambique, Southern Africa.

Dunes de Dovela is the perfect place to feel the energy emerging from the beauties of the Mozambican coast, the Dunes de Dovela Eco Lodge proposes a whole immersion into the Nature and the Chope Culture for Responsible Tourism.

Paths through the dunes and the coastal forest, along the edge of Dongane lake and towards Dovela village offer you lots of opportunities to explore the area and meet people… Alternatively, you can relax on the terrace of your comfortable chalet and watch the Humpback Whales (June to October),or walk down to the pristine beach and snorkel along our rocky reef.

Accommodation at Dunes De Dovela

Built on the second crest of the dunes that overlook Manhame beach (10 kms north of Zavora) and melt into the coastal forest, each patch of Dunes de Dovela Lodge beneficiates of a breathtaking view on the Indian Ocean.

Dunes de Dovela proposes two types of accommodation scattered into the dunes: luxurious bungalows or semi luxury dome tents pitched on wooden platforms. Linen, pillows, duvet, towels and soap are provided for each type of accommodation.

Each option is on a full board basis and aims to a personal accompaniment and care. To reach the closest grocery is not the nicest and the shortest walk of the area, you rather focus on our marked foot paths or other activities.

The bungalows and the tents are located between 40m and 80m of the central area that includes the reception, the restaurant, the bar and a large patio.
