Mama’s Lodge on Inhaca Island offers a truly exceptional, tropical Island experience! The lodge faces west, which means the sunsets happen directly in front of the lodge, deck and swimming pool. The view of the bay, with the twinkle of Maputo’s lights on the horizon at dusk is amazing.
Whether you’re swimming in the rim-flow pool with a caipirinha or barbecuing on the pit under the spacious Morula tree, you will always be amazed at the sheer beauty of your surroundings.
Even the sleeping experience invokes nature. The large mosquito nets protect you from the insects but the glassless windows allow the cool Mozambican air to refresh your slumber. The kitchen is open plan and the central island serves as the meeting point for cooking, drinking and socialising. Nothing can be nicer than preparing fresh crayfish from the bay whilst everyone chats and drinks around you.
The main house comprises of 3 ensuite rooms. All of them are unique, and combine sophistication with natural rustic minimalism.
There is a tree house in the forest that is wild and romantic whilst still being luxurious. It has a beautiful en-suite toilet with a balcony that looks onto the forest canopy. One can wake up each morning and watch 10 different bird species go about their business in the Morula tree that supports the tree house.
Then there are two rustic bedrooms that share a bathroom near the garages. The one bedroom has a fantastic 3 tiered bunk bed for kids. The other interleading bedroom is for teenagers or parents that choose to be close to their kids.
Mamas Lodge has been built with local design, which follows the aesthetic of no Western doors and windows or the use of Airconditioners. The rooms have high ceilings, with large open shutters and ceiling fans (Bedrooms) that ensure the flow of cool air and no need for Aircon. Enjoy the sound of the breeze in the evenings and the lap of waves on the shore. Our Island is a beautiful and very safe location.
