Lagoa Poelela resort is a small scale contained luxury development (max 10 lodge units) situated in a designated eco-tourist area between “heaven and the deep blue sea”.


The lodges are individually for sale.


The resort will manage a rental pool of the lodges for those owners wishing to rent out their units.


The up-keep and maintenance of the lodges and their infrastructure, as well as the marina and the restaurant, will be undertaken by a dedicated and trained management team.

House boating—Lake and sunset cruises

Mozambique at Lake Poelela


Superb diving. There are amazing coral reefs, which make this an ideal snorkeling and diving destination. For the more experienced divers there is a shipwreck offshore. The ship “Klipfontein” sank in 1953 during a race with a fellow German ship. The wreck is to be found 54m under and we believe this to be one of the best diving sites in the world. Discoveries have been made of copper, coins, old wine bottles, making this dive at he “Klipfontein” wreck one of the top 5 thins to do and see. All diving is done through MozDive.

Water Sports

Sailing, water-skiing, banana rides, kayaking, tubing, wind surfing and paddle boats are some of the activities to be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Quad biking is not permitted along the beaches, however inland this is not a problem.


In close proximity to both developments is an eco-sanctuary, where bird-watching and dune forests can be enjoyed.

From Johannesburg—The most frequented route is from Johannesburg along the N4 toll road via Witbank, Nelspruit and the Lebombo/Resano Garcia Border Post to Maputo. Roads and bridges are in good condition, and it is possible to drive in a two-wheel-drive vehicle, even during wet season. However, 4 wheel drive vehicles are more suitable to the areas off the main roads.


Alternative route via Kruger National Park. Travelers are now able to travel through the Kruger National Park (this is a pleasant drive offering game viewing).


From the Kruger National Park, you arrive at Giriyondo Border Post, then through the Limpopo National Park to the Massingir Dam (4 x 4 vehicles required during the wet season).


After departing from Massingir, the road is tarred to the EN1 Highway. Visitors to the Kruger Park are advised to plan their trips as the K N Park closes its gates at 6 pm and re-open at 6 am each morning.


From Maputo you would keep driving on the EN1, passing through a number of small settlements, until you reach Xai-Xai, (approx 175 km’s from Maputo) which is a good place to re-fuel).


From Xai-Xai travelers remain on the EN1, watching out for potholes on an 80 km’s stretch of road which is currently under construction. Quissico is the following town, approx 80 km from Xai-Xai is the first place of note one arrives at in the Inhambane Province.


Set high on a hill you have magnificent view of lagoons and Lake Poelela.


Keep on the EN1 until you reach Inharrime town (approx 35 km’s from Quissico). Approximately 8 km’s from Inharrime, turn right at the sign post to Zavora and continue on this gravel road for 12 km’s until you turn off to the right at the sign marked Lake Poelela. The sand road from the run-off will lead you to the lake water front and then to Ponta Zavora Development
