Dunes de Dovela Eco-Lodge

(24°26’10.36″S / 35°14’37.67″E)

Dunes de Dovela is one of the most underrated lodges in Inhambane Province, offering guests something completely different and unique to anything on offer elsewhere in Mozambique.


Dunes de Dovela Location

Dunes de Dovela roughly 1 hours drive south of Inhambane, and just to the north of Zavora. It is roughly a 6 hour drive from Maputo.



Dunes de Dovela is built on the second crest of dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean, and it blends beautifully into the surrounding coastal forest. There are two types of accommodation on offer: luxurious bungalows or semi luxurious dome tents pitched on wooden platforms. The bungalows have beautiful bathroom space with an outside shower, and spectacular ocean views. Both accommodation options come with linen, pillows, mosquito nets, towel and soap.



Dunes de Dovela is owner run and managed, and the staff are friendly and welcoming.


Food & beverage

The smells that emanate from the kitchen are tantalising, and every meal is prepared using fresh locally grown ingredients. Cuisine is a fusion of French and local Mozambican flavours, and the menu changes daily, ensuring that guests don’t grow bored of the food on offer.
