About Us

Meet the Owners

Mike and Shirley Donald have spent most of their lives in Mozambique. They built Kwalala – Lodges from the ground up, literally! Over the years the company has expanded and more and more lodges were built to accommodate the ever demanding clientele.

The lodge is so beautiful, and although not so easy to get to, it boasts an amazing sense of tranquility in the remote location it is situated in Mozambique.

The staff are very friendly and cater to your every need. There is so much to do here and if you are not a fan of fish then this resort will surprise you with its fantastic catering facilities that cater to any request a client has. We call it the “Thirsty Whale” restaurant.

You may notice that the Lodges don’t serve breakfast at the room, room service is available but everyone tends to meet up at the main Lodge to have breakfast before heading out to do their own different activities, like scuba diving, spearfishing, snorkeling, kayaking or just going for long walks on the beach.

We hope you join us and we promise that we will make the journey worth your while. Come and visit this Oasis of Relaxation with us!

About Kwalala Lodges

Kwalala Lodge is an oasis of relaxation and adventure on the shores of Nacala Bay in Northern Mozambique. Designed with you in mind, the one-of-a-kind stone lodges and activity center, provide a world class view of the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean as they cascade over coral banks into indigo depths. The Lodge offers a myriad of activities and customized adventures designed to make your stay truly unforgettable!

Nestled in a secluded cove with its own marine reserve, the Lodge provides the perfect vantage point from which to watch the ocean going vessels cruise into Nacala Port, the local dhow’s criss-cross the bay, the tuna whip the water into a feeding frenzy, or the humpback whales pass by on their spring migration.

Kwalala Lodge is situated approximately 4 kms from the Nacala airport & an hour and a half drive by road from the historical Ilha de Mocambique (Mozambique Island) and day trips can easily be arranged.

Whether you’re a business traveler in need of a ‘home away from home’ or a family looking for adventure off the beaten track, Kwalala Lodge is a special place to make lasting memories and forge new friendships.
