Casa Chibububo Lodge is a hidden treasure situated on the magnificent coastline of Vilanculos. We offer affordable, family friendly accommodation in elevated wooden houses just a few steps from the water’s edge.
We have an array of accommodation options to suit your requirements, from the single traveler to large groups. Choose between one of our 3 bedroom, sea view houses or our 11 bedroom, garden view house.

In Room Facilities:

All houses are fully equipped for self-catering with an ample deck to enjoy the spectacular view and catch the evening breeze.
Some of the bedrooms in the houses are en suite and the rest of the bedrooms share bathrooms.
Each house is equipped with linen, bath towels and mosquito nets.
Our houses are kept cool with ceiling fans in all rooms, as well as through the unique design of the local thatched roofs which leaves a space for air circulation.
We have open thatched roofs in all units, not traditional ceilings.
The inside walls are made of natural materials like reeds and wood and walls do not go up to the roof.
Because of the open design of the thatched roofs, birds often come and sit on the higher beams inside the roof and you may sometimes be greeted in the morning with the friendly chirp and chatter of these feathered friends.

Area Information:

The area is popular for spectacular reefs in the Bazaruto archipelago islands and are ideal for scuba diving or snorkeling. Deep sea fishing is another main attraction for Vilanculos.
Vilanculos Airport is nearby and airport shuttles can be arranged.

Property Facilities:

We offer our guests a restaurant, bar, sparkling swimming pool and barbecue area under the palm trees. Housekeeping included and laundry service available at an extra charge.
We also have an automatic backup generator to keep the lights on in the event of a power outage.
You do not need a 4x4 vehicle to reach Casa Chibububo Lodge, although it is generally recommended to drive a vehicle with higher ground clearance on most Mozambican roads.
During extreme high tides (Spring tide/full moon) the water may sometimes flow across the bridge at our entrance to the lodge.
The water is never deeper than calve depth and you can safely drive through it. (distance of about 20 m)
The road up to where you turn off just before the airport is paved/tarred. Only the last 1km is a dust road through the village.
Please note that we do not have a “traditional” beach in front of the lodge – as you will see on the pictures.
It is more like a giant lagoon, as the water pulls back for about 300m at low tide and comes up to 20m from the houses at high tide.
You can swim in front of the lodge or you can easily walk along the beach (especially during low tide) to other lodges and restaurants on the beach front.
About 500meters up the coastline you will find more “traditional” sandy beaches with palm trees – although no big waves as the water is more like a lagoon.

Attractions:

Take a day excursion to the islands - a truly magical adventure on our traditional Mozambique dhow (sail boat).
You can also ask our friendly staff to help arrange some of the other activities in and around Vilanculos, like: kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, chartered deep-sea fishing, beach horse rides and canoe safaris.

Value for money! The host (Steward) was friendly and helpful. He is fluent in English which went a long way in figuring our way around the town and the locals. The house is well maintained, has a balcony with a view of the ocean. We had most our dinners prepared by the lodge's cook- most divine seafood I've had in my life! I wasn't a huge fan of fish but now I'm totally hooked. My husband and I will definitely be returning!

I am writing to you to thank you for the excellent service and kindness you have shown to my daughter, Salome and her friends during their stay at Casa Chibububo. They had a wonderful time! Thank you for all the trouble you went to make their stay so memorable. They are very appreciative of the prepared fire for their barbecues as well as the fantastic sea food preparation!
Thank you so much for all the many small things you assisted with. I really appreciate it as well as your patience in attending to all of these and being so accommodating. Your contribution to their fantastic holiday cannot be over estimated. I would love to go to Casa Chibububo myself some time.
Thank you once again!
