Tourism Tattler - - PROPERTY PROFILE HOSPITALITY MOZAMBIQUE -

Lo­cated off the beaten track, with easy ac­cess from In­ham­bane air­port or Vi­lan­cu­los In­ter­na­tional air­port, Traves­sia is an eco-beach lodge that is all about un­der­stated bare­foot lux­ury.

The lodge is built on raised wooden decks with tim­ber or roll-up can­vas walls un­der a thatched roof. The four lux­u­ri­ous and se­cluded casa have 180˚ sea views. The lodge is en­tirely so­lar pow­ered, en­sur­ing a light en­vi­ron­men­tal foot print.

Take a walk on the end­less beach, re­lax in the shade of the palm grove, pad­dle out or gaze at the sea from the rim-flow pool or ac­cept an in­vite from the neigh­bour­ing com­mu­nity. So­phis­ti­cated whilst down to earth, with no one around for miles, Traves­sia is for fam­i­lies, in­di­vid­ual trav­ellers and cou­ples alike.

“The Mozam­bique Col­lec­tion is all about col­lab­o­ra­tion in pro­mot­ing Mozam­bique as an in­ter­na­tional tourist des­ti­na­tion, and we feel that the unique­ness of Traves­sia Beach Lodge, will con­trib­ute more depth and va­ri­ety to the col­lec­tion of prop­er­ties, which al­ready in­clude Nk­wichi Lodge, Ibo Is­land Lodge, Nuarro Lodge and Bahia Mar Bou­tique Ho­tel”, says Kim Rossi, man­ager of The Mozam­bique Col­lec­tion.

Traves­sia Beach Lodge is nes­tled be­tween coastal for­est and palm trees on the dunes along an end­less beach. At low tide, the surf is per­fect to take the ca­noe for a pad­dle and both chil­dren and adults will en­joy boo­gie

About The Mozam­bique Col­lec­tion board­ing whilst the lit­tle ones love the small nat­u­ral “pools” that are cre­ated when the tide goes out. There are no hawk­ers try­ing to sell you lo­cal cu­rios. De­pend­ing on the weather off­shore, you will find plenty of dif­fer­ent shells and bleached coral on your beach walk. The Traves­sia team keeps their beach clean by reg­u­larly col­lect­ing all waste that gets washed up on the beach a few hun­dred me­ters up and down the prop­erty.

The Restau­rant menu is in­spired by what is in sea­son and avail­able at the lo­cal mar­kets and shops. Fresh fish and cray­fish are sourced from the lo­cal spear-fish­er­men. Whilst mango, paw­paw or av­o­cado are sea­sonal, co­conuts are avail­able all year round.

A short walk from the restau­rant leads to the beach bar and rim-flow plunge pool. Here, guests can stretch out on lo­cally made loungers whilst en­joy­ing 360 de­gree views over the end­less coast­line and a sea of palm trees to­wards the hin­ter­land.

Early af­ter­noon braais on the pool deck with drinks from the bar, which is well stocked with lo­cal beers, soft drinks, a se­lec­tion of South African wines and spir­its, pro­vide a per­fect set­ting for view­ing sun-sets over the warm In­dian ocean.

It's no won­der that guests have rated Traves­sia Beach Lodge 10/10 on Tri­pAd­vi­sor.
