EASTER SPECIAL 40% OFF ON ALL ACCOMMODATION!! Welcome to Mango Beach Lodge, located in the heart of the most beautiful coast lines Mozambique has to offer. Located 20 Kilometers from one of the oldest cities in Mozambique, Inhambane, lies the small town of Tofo. About 3km from Tofo town, along the road parallel to the beach, you will find our Lodge. All accommodation is nestled behind our dune, affording you all the privacy and protection from the elements. We currently have 2 En-suite and 4 Cabana's that make use of Shared Ablution facility. Each Cabana is open plan and is configured with 1 king bed and 2 single beds. The restaurant is situated at the top of the dune and has spectacular sunrises and breathtaking sunsets over the palm trees. We are away from the hustle and bustle of town where you can relax and take in the surroundings and "catch your breath". From July to October our waters become Humpback Whale breeding grounds and you can enjoy encounters with mothers and calves. An unforgettable experience.

Mango Beach is 100% our favourite spot to hang out at. The food is AMAZING. The view is AMAZING. The staff are AMAZING. We wish we could be at Mango Beach everyday. They have everything from pizza’s and calzones to pastas and curries to burgers and to cold beers! :)

We stayed at Mango Beach Lodge for almost two weeks while diving in Tofo. We were made to feel so very welcome by Stefan and Graham and their families. We left feeling as though we had gained both new friends and more than a little inner peace. Incredible spot, a truly perfect place to relax and unwind. Highly recommended, we cannot wait to go back!

We spent a week at Mango Beach during December 2015. It’s safe to say: we never wanted to leave! The cabanas are beautifully restored. The bathrooms are neat and kept spick & span by friendly staff. The Bush kitchen is very convenient and equipped with all necessary utensils, although we did not make much use of it after we had a taste of the restaurants food. Lovely thin crusted pizzas and fresh perfectly prepared seafood! #drool. We enjoyed the privacy of the beach and the breathtaking views, only a stone throw away from bustling Tofo. Thank you Stefan, Paula and Marc for your hospitality. Truly unforgettable holiday experience!

We heard a rumor about them but never expected what we've experienced.
The freshly home made pasta was out of this world. Kids went ballistic on the beach and had great pizzas.

Samuel "from China" was entertaining with his stories.

Highly recommended!

So glad the new owners are focusing on making it an awesome experience.

I stayed here some days and it's an amazing place! Geat view, friendly service, clean rooms and a good restaurant. It's not in the centre of tofo beach but it's perfect to relax and a walk along the beach is always nice.
Perfect for people who look for a peaceful place at the beach :)

My best stay in Mozambique yet. Mango beach provided the perfect getaway. It is located the at an ideal distance from Tofo beach to have the beach to yourself but close enough to still have a good time in Tofo. Steffan and Marc (the new owners) treated us like royalty. The rooms and bathrooms were spotless. Furthermore, the restaurant's food quality was unmatched in the area. Looking forward to my next trip to Mango Beach and having an R&R with Steffan and Marc.

From the moment we met Stefan, he was so welcoming and accommodating. We got to the lodge and settled in nicely. Friendly staff, the lodge is neat, clean and eco-friendly. Rooms are comfortable. Drinks....woooohoooo the RnR's are a MUST have not to mention the Mozambiquan wave....hmmmmm.....The Food is DELICIOUS!!! From the breakfast to dinner. Fresh, well priced and generous portion sizes. The tour of Porca island and Pansy island was lovely too, a good cultural experience meeting the chief and the locals. THANK YOU Stefan and team for making our stay one we will never forget. You guys became like family. Tofo Mango Beach is definitely a MUST for anyone looking to relax and take a timeout from the every day hustle. We will definitely be returning soon. Recommended to ALL my family and friends 🤗🤗🤗 Not goodbye but see you later!!! OBRIGADO MANGO BEACH, TOFO 🙏

Despite Mango Beach being rebuilt after the devastating cyclone, Steffan and Mark relocated us to a friends lodge Aquatico, and managed to make chalets habitable and reopen their restaurant onsite, in time for the holidays. The huge effort was so much appreciated! Despite our disappointment in not being able to stay in Mango Beaches tranquil chalets, Mark, Steffan, Samuel and Manuel and staff, brought the same generous spirit of hospitality, brilliant food and helpful friendliness to their temporary home. I cant wait to visit the rebuilt Mango Beach after December. In the mean time, please support their restaurant. The best pizza's fresh pasta and prawn curries in Tofo!

The chalets were roomy and comfortable. We had the en-suite, which was really nicely appointed. A shared kitchen was available, which we made a lot of use of, as we did the lapa.
All of the meals we had were well prepared and tasty. Breakfast was wonderful. They also prepared sandwiches for the early fisherman, and early departures.
The owners and staff could not possibly have worked harder to make the stay a pleasant one.
