Our privately owned establishment is a twelve sleeper luxury, serviced self-catering lodge along Jangamo Bay in the Inhambane province, Mozambique.

Nestled between Coconut Bay and Guinjata Bay, this luxury lodge sits right on the beach, and enjoys a cooling ocean breeze. In July and August the Humpback whales can be viewed from the pool deck.

Whale Of A Time is a five building Lodge with four en-suite bedrooms, and a main entertainment area with fully equipped kitchen, lounge with DStv and a dining area with braai facilities. From every room in the lodge you are able to view the beach and the ocean, even while in the shower or bath.
