Constructed using locally sourced materials - even down to the coat hangers - this eco lodge exudes a rustic charm that will suit all those wishing to eschew ostentation during their trip to Mozambique.
Located on a long and largely uninhabited stretch of beach, Guludo Beach Lodge's location truly takes you away from civilisation and allows you to experience Mozambique’s wonderful natural beauty uninterrupted.
Accommodation & Facilities
The emphasis at this lodge is on sustainability rather than luxury, with all of the facilities designed to make your stay as eco-friendly as possible. The lodges sit above the beach and are constructed with open sides, stone floors and high thatched roofs, all furnished with locally made furniture. There is an on-site bar and a swimming pool for visitors to use. There is no electricity at the lodge but storm lanterns are provided to guests as well as candles. Water is provided by the staff for the outdoor showers.
Dining at Guludo Beach Lodge is a creative affair utilising the very best of Mozambican and Swahili flavours, with an international twist. With fresh local ingredients you can be sure of an interesting array of dishes. The cooks can cater for a variety of dietary requirements if informed in advance, using fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
With the focus here is on becoming attuned with the lodge's natural surrounding, and the activities on offer reflect this. Football and archery provide plenty of fun when practiced on the beach, while keen sailors can take to the waters and scuba divers are able to head beneath the waves to catch sight of Mozambique's rich marine wildlife. Those of a crafty nature can spend an afternoon learning the traditional art of pot-making, or learn how to weave palm fronds with the local village craft group. The location of the lodge also makes it ideal for whale watching during the migration season, but inland day trips can also be arranged for travellers seeking encounters with terrestrial wildlife. The option is also there to take a trip to a nearby village, and discover the local culture there.
Children are welcome at the lodge.
