Exclusive and romantic - only over 12’s welcome at Flamingo Bay!
25 February 2015
It is not that children are not welcome at Flamingo Bay Water Lodge in Mozambique’s popular Inhambane region – it is just that this is the ideal lodge set aside for weddings and honeymoons. The noise of young children is not conducive to remote privacy, now is it?
On the other hand, children of 12 and older are very welcome at Flamingo Bay. Some say this is because children of this age are more responsible and appreciative of the environment in which they find themselves. They are better suited to water sports such as snorkelling, surfing, swimming and horse riding. And they throw very few tantrums!
Getting there is not for babies
Flamingo Bay Water Lodge in Mozambique is a haven of tranquillity where real pink flamingos roost in an estuary brimming with biodiversity, ruled by the tides. Maybe this would not be the safest place anyway for young children, with all that water around? And to get there, the flights and road transfers are a mission for one so young... whereas a 12 year old would revel in the world around him or her.
The lodge is nearly 500 kilometres away from Maputo so the drive would take all day. If you land at Inhambane airport, you drive a mere 30 minutes to the lodge, this transfer arranged by the lodge to make things easier for you and your family.
Staying there is for romantics
The luxury at Flamingo Bay Water Lodge best suits weddings and honeymoons, idyllic sojourns in paradise, on sea and white beaches. The presence of small children would simply be out of place. Mozambique boasts a huge range of family-oriented holiday resorts where all ages of children can happily be accommodated, meeting new friends and keeping busy all day. Flamingo Bay in Inhambane is just not one of these types of resorts.
It is a place of solitude and romance. Picture a white wedding on the beach, bride and groom walking barefoot, the waves breaking gently in the background. Imagine the reception overlooking the estuary, sky turning pink as the music gets under way?
Your honeymoon at Flamingo Bay Water Lodge is a fantasy beyond your wildest dreams. Dive off your private deck into the sea in the morning to snorkel or simply wake up. Enjoy long beach walks and some of the best diving from Barra Beach Lodge.
In fact, Barra is the best place for children under 12 and that is another whole story on its own! You can book your Mozambique holiday with the Mozambique Travel.com experts.
