Bilene Lodge From R315 pps

Just like the Mozambicans’ attitude to life, the seaside town of Bilene in Mozambique’s Gaza province is lively, a little bit eccentric, and a whole lot laid-back. If you’re craving something off the beaten track and family-friendly, you’ll find it here, at Bilene Lodge, an easy two-hour drive from Maputo.

The self-catering apartments at Bilene Lodge are just what you need, with private patios, en-suite bathrooms and modern luxuries including complimentary Wi-Fi and air-conditioning. Uninterrupted views over the Ujembe Lagoon will easily catch your eye, with its shallow shores lined by pure-white beaches.

A large sandbar separates this shimmering lagoon from the Indian Ocean, providing a protected area for a variety of watersports. Barges, boats, dhows, canoes and kayaks can be used across the lagoon and to the mouth. Enjoy safe snorkelling and, depending on the season, get up close and personal with a few turtles.

While staying at Bilene Lodge, the thriving town of Bilene is just a short walk away. Its small but colourful market features fresh produce and brightly-coloured capalanas (sarongs) that fill each rustic store. Curio traders hawk their wares, and cashew nut sellers are never hard to find.

Get your ‘catch of the day’ from the fluttering dhows as they head back to shore. Eat it right on the beach for that quintessential Mozambican seaside meal, before retreating to Bilene Lodge for a well-deserved afternoon nap. For travellers wanting a Robinson Crusoe-style adventure, a dose of culture, or just some seriously good local food, a holiday at Bilene Lodge is a match made in holiday heaven.

BOAT TRIPS

Since the Ujembe lagoon is so vast, there is ample space to throttle up and really have some fun. Guests at Bilene Lodge can enjoy two complimentary boat trips during their stay, on a Sunday and Wednesday between 08h00 and 12h00. Boating trips are subject to demand and, during peak holiday periods, extra runs are typically added. Be sure to speak to any of the Bilene staff for details.

The lagoon in Bilene is teeming with wildlife. Local species include Hippocampus Camelopardalis or ‘Giraffe Seahorse’, which are critically endangered. Birdwatchers can marvel at the large population of Flamingos that are endemic to Bilene. Between November and March, witness a fascinating act of nature at Bilene when turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.
