Pomene Bay Lodge is situated in one of the most picturesque spots in Mozambique. It is remote, with a very low local population assuring pristine and unspoilt conditions. Pomene Lodge is 605km north of Maputo and 170km south of Vilanculos.

Guests can also fly in to Inhambane on the regular schedule flight from O.R.Tambo and then be transferred to Pomene by the Pomene shuttle vehicle which is a 4x4 minibus. This scenic road transfer takes approximately 4 hours and can be arranged with Our Booking office in Johannesburg, as well as the Fligh reservations.
The lodge is situated on a narrow peninsula with the Indian Ocean lapping at its front doorstep and crystal clear waters of a spectacular mangrove estuary lapping on the other, it has the best of both worlds. From every accommodation site you are no more than one minutes walk from the white beach sand and the warm Indian Ocean.
The lodge is advantageously located in the Pomene Bay offering a sheltered haven for swimming. Here one cannot escape the rhythmic sound of the ocean nor miss seeing perfect sunsets over the estuary.
