About Nhonguane Lodge

Come discover the Santa Maria peninsula at Nhonguane Lodge; enjoy excellent fishing, snorkelling and gorgeous beach sunsets. We offer self-catering accommodation in the form of comfortable houses and a Safari-tented camp for the nature lover. An unforgettable holiday awaits you. Nhonguane Lodge is located at the eastern side of the Bay of Maputo along the beach about 1 km from the channel separating the peninsula from Inhaca Island. The local village of Santa Maria is about 3 km from the lodge to the south and stock most necessities. Seafood sold on site brought in by local vendors such as prawns, crab and fish are usually available. Nhonguane Lodge is only accessible with a 4x4 vehicle through the Maputo Elephant Reserve or by boat via Maputo.

The self-catering holiday houses offer fully equipped kitchens that are serviced daily. The houses can accommodate individuals, groups or the whole family. All units are air-conditioned, and all windows have mosquito nets. All of the houses have their own braai facility, and are just a couple of metres from the beach. Some of the houses have their own swimming pool. There is also a communal swimming pool for the other houses, as well as a beach bar.

The Safari Tented Camp consists of three safari tents sleeping four people each. The safari-tented camp offers all the comfort of the necessary amenities, with en-suite bathrooms, fans and mosquito nets for every bed. The camp has a large thatched roof entertainment area with kitchen, bar counter and dining area. Marula trees provide the shade for an outside braai area.

The Santa Maria Peninsula is an unspoiled Mozambican shoreline situated just to the south of Inhaca Island in Southern Mozambique. Nhonguane Lodge is located at the eastern side of the Bay of Maputo along the beach about 1 km from the channel separating the peninsula from Inhaca Island. The Bay of Maputo stretches for 40 km from Maputo to the peninsula. Maputo is 550 km from Johannesburg by road and the Lodge is 38 km across the bay as the crow flies.

The new team at Nhonguane Lodge, both on site and in a supportive capacity, wishes to all our guests, old and new, that this destination will be a voyage of discovery.

                                          Nice AREA for quiet holiday. House no 5 not up to standard for rate charged. Not enough kitchen equipment ie microwave etc. Dated and neglegted kitchen utilities ie pans rusted, not suitable to prepare food in and harly any cutlery and crockery. No hot water in kitchen. Overall not neat and appealing for a holiday. Very NEGLECTED.Januario however is a very pleasand person and the only plus point at the resort. Very helpful and friendly.

                                          After an adventurous 3hr drive through the reserve you reach Santa maria which is amazing. House 5 was comfortable however no microwave and low pressure in shower. January is on site to help and he put on a pump which helped the pressure. Amazing tidal flow and beach bar. Bemuji's need door offered an excellent restaurant, deep sea fishing and snorkelling tours to Inhaca Island. Will definitely return but not to house 5.
