Coral Lodge has a prime location for sightings of Humpback Whales. Sightings usually occur each year from August until October, as the whales migrate from the Antarctic to our warmer waters of Mozambique, to mate and give birth.

Bottlenose dolphins and Humpback dolphins are also frequent sightings during July through to September.

Coral Lodge offers Half-day sailing experience to view the whales and dolphins by traditional boat or in a motorised boat.

A visit to Coral Lodge is not complete without a visit to Ilha De Mozambique, commonly known as Mozambique Island.

This magical island is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Mozambique and is steeped in centuries of history and culture.

Just 3km in length, and approximately 600meter’s at its widest, you can discover the island in a day.

Coral Lodge offers daily return transfers to the island, one of which is complimentary during your stay, then any further trips are at an additional cost.


The ancient baobab tree found tucked around the peninsular of Coral Lodge creates an idyllic setting to watch the African sunset beyond our shores.

We will pack a picnic basket filled with delicious delicacies and some of your favourite chilled beverages to savour as the sun goes down over a Mozambican paradise.
