I absolutely loved staying at Bay View Lodge for my first trip to Mozambique. The lodge was huge even though we only came as a party of 3. The house can easily hold a big family or a larger party. They have everything you need from braai stand, to fully equipped kitchen etc. The rooms were clean, the nets had very small holes but nothing a plaster or tap can't fix. The sheets and towels were clean. It is right by the beach which was amazing and brings in a breeze against the heat. Restaurants were in walking distance and local clubs/music/bars and markets were just a 10 min drive out to Tofo. The staff are just unbelievably amazing. We got there a day late because we took the "Short cut" (don't do this, do not follow gps ask Bayview lodge if coming from JHB and driving) so they accommodated us to stay a day after our initial booking. The security washed our totally wrecked car to perfection as if nothing ever happened. They even washed our sneakers.
All around I am definitely coming back to Bay view lodge on my next trip
Tip: A can of Doom and a stick of peaceful sleep in each room would be helpful since we finished ours in just 2 days. The Mosquitos ARE REAL OUT HERE!More
