Fascinating facts about Flamingo Bay
22 April 2015
Finding the facts on Flamingo Bay Water Lodge is a fun process because there is so much to talk about! This amazing Mozambique Lodge is surrounded by water during high tide, or wet sand at low tide, being situated on an amazing estuary brimming with biodiversity and lush vegetation. This fascinating environment invites guests to view flocks of pink flamingos, tropical fish moving in and out of the bay with the tides, other estuarine creatures like crabs and glorious sunrises and sunsets over all of this blue water.
Take long walks along the beaches, swim in the sea and use the daily complimentary transfers to Barra Lodge, Flamingo Bay’s sister lodge, to the activity centre to take part in things like diving, windsurfing, kite surfing, boat cruises and more. Learn more about Barra Beach Lodge right here. You can snorkel right off your private wooden deck into the estuary at high tide and see amazing fish, including even the endangered dugong.
Fantastic facts about Flamingo Bay
- No children under 12 years of age are allowed at Flamingo Bay Water Lodge – this is mainly a wedding and honeymoon venue.
- It is only a 30 minute drive to Inhambane from the lodge, a trip worth doing to explore the town, the local markets and the Mozambique way of life.
- The top class conferencing and banqueting facilities cater for 60 delegates, who can make use of break-away rooms too suitable for smaller groups.
- Find the ideal wedding venue on the beach for something intimate, on the pool deck, on the upper pool balcony or in a private indoor venue for up to 60 people. The lodge will take all the stress out of your hands as far as organisation and catering go!
Things to do in this watery paradise
As far as activities go, you can do most of them from the lodge, or enjoy water sports at Barra Lodge next door, a short boat ride away. Explore the mangroves on foot or on a boat and take photographs of the many birds and trees. Take a guided horse trail around the beautiful Inhambane area or gallop along the beach. Enjoy a guided quad bike ride through the coconut palms on set paths to avoid damaging any biodiversity – not on the beach. Romantic traditional dhow trips will make the end of your day extra special – sit back with a sundowner and watch the sky turn pink. You can also go charter fishing for huge game fish, on a catch-and-release basis or enjoy an ocean cruise to seek dolphins and whales.
It is always great to get back to your luxury timber accommodation on stilts on the water – water chalets are spacious, airy and sunny. Slick facilities, wonderful service and amazing food make your holiday at Flamingo Bay Water Lodge something you will never forget.
