Welcome to Mozambique

Mozambique is a country of great cultural diversity with aspects connecting it to neighbouring countries and continents. Approximately 40 languages and dialects are spoken, of which the Macua, Tsonga (Shangaan), Sena, and Nianja stand out. Whilst only around 40% of Mozambicans master Portuguese well, the country’s rich literature is predominantly in that language.

Mozambique’s climate

Most of Mozambique falls within the tropics, so is rarely cold. Throughout the year daytime temperatures range between 28-33°C (82-91°F). From June to August (winter months) daytime temperatures can be cooler. The rainy season is from October to April and temperatures can be hot and humid, particularly December, January and February. All the seasons have their own particular climatic attraction and beauty. Climate and culture mean that dress codes are relaxed, with sarongs, shorts and T-shirts acceptable in most places.

How to get to Coral Lodge

The exact coordinates for Coral Lodge are 15.41, i.e. 15 degrees south latitude and 41 degrees east longitude. The lodge is located on the beach and surrounded by its own sea lagoon in the north of Mozambique in the Mossuril district, in an area called Varanda. Varanda lies on the tip of a peninsula. The local village community is Cabaceira Pequena. Coral Lodge is a short sail or motorboat ride from Ilha de Moçambique (Mozambique Island), the former capital of Mozambique. Many of our guests transfer from Nampula or Nacala airports by car and mini-van to the island and then enjoy arriving at the lodge by sailing dhow or motorboat.

Transfer from Nampula Airport to Coral Lodge

  • By road directly

The direct by road mini-van transfer to Coral Lodge is a 180 km drive through the countryside. The last 40-50 km are along a bumpy sand road, with the last 10 km or so on very sandy tracks and through mangrove swamp water at high tide. This transfer takes 2.50 to 3 hours but may be longer during the rainy season depending on road conditions.

  • By road and dhow from the Isle de Mozambique

The transfer by mini-van winds through pretty countryside along a good tarmac road over the bridge to Ilha de Mozambique where guests board the Coral Lodge traditional sailing dhow. The transfer time depends on the tide and takes approx. 20-30 minutes at high tide and up to 45 minutes at low tide. At high tide the dhow drops guests off at the lagoon entrance, next to the lodge. At low tide the dhow anchors in shallow, warm water 50-100m from the lodge, which means guests wade to the beach. Our team will take the luggage! Total transfer time is approx. 3.5 hours depending on the tide.

Guests arriving on the SA Airlink flight from O.R. Tambo airport (Johannesburg), land at approximately 13h30. If there are no issues with visas or customs, guests should be on Ilha de Moçambique before 16h30. For return transfers, the reverse happens and guests generally leave the lodge by 08h00/08h30 depending on the tide, to arrive at the airport in Nampula by 11h30 that is 2.5 hours before the 14h00 SA Airlink departure.

  • Nampula to Coral Lodge round trip transfer fee:

$400.00 per mini-van with a/c with a capacity of up to 6 persons (adults or children) including motorboat or dhow sailing boat transfer from Isle de Mozambique.

 

Alternative transfers available from Nacala Airport | Lumbo Airstrip | Ilha de Mozambique
