Vila De Sonhos is situated on the beach front, 6.5 km south of Vilankulo Town and consists of 4 freestanding lodges of which, 2 are privately owned and 2 are rented out all year round.

Additionally, each lodge is serviced daily as well as daily laundry being done.
This service is included in the rate. There is also an assistant chef for basic cooking needs.

There is a centrally located swimming pool which serves the whole complex as well as a large braai area with a gas braai. If you would prefer to take a swim in the warm Indian Ocean, there is a private entrance to the child friendly beach, which is a stone’s throw away.

The electricity in Vilankulo is unreliable and a standby generator is provided but we urge guests to bring a torch for late power cuts.

FISHING
Fishing in Vilankulo is excellent, especially for catching Sail Fish, King Mackerel, Queen Mackerel, Yellow Fin Tuna and Barracuda. The Bazaruto Archipelago Islands, which have become well known for catching Black Marlin (in the warmer months) are close and our local, experienced skipper can guide you to the best spots.

Our boat, a 29ft Catamaran called Nevaevagiveup can be hired for $300 a day plus fuel for the islands inside the archipelago and $400 a day plus fuel outside the archipelago. Fishing equipment is available. There is another fishing boat (Ngica) available for hire for deep sea fishing for $200 USD a day plus fuel. The hiring rate includes a skipper.

SNORKELING AND DIVING
With the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, a number of snorkeling and diving destinations can be enjoyed in The Bazaruto Archipelago Islands, there is no end to your underwater experience. Pack a lunch, venture out for a day with family and friends and take a trip to one of the many snorkeling destinations. Magaruque, 2 Mile and Santa Carolina (also know as Paradise Island) are some of the closest islands only taking between 40 minutes to Margaruque and an hour to Paradise Island. They have an abundance of sea life and make your experience an unforgettable one. Please bring your own snorkeling equipment if you wish to snorkel. Snorkelling equipment is available on request.

Diving, diving courses and island hopping can be arranged, as well as kite boarding through various companies in town.

HORSE RIDING
Escape civilization and canter down the beach on horse back. Have the wind blowing in your hair and the sun kissing your face as you ride these majestic creatures along the sandy beaches while taking in the breath taking scenery that is Vilankulo.

Horse riding can be arranged through management at the lodge - their website is www.mozambiquehorsesafari.com

GENERAL
Malaria is a concern and a prophylactic such as Deltaprim is a good option but a personal choice. It is very important to finish your course of Malaria tablets once you have left the malaria area. We do supply mosquito nets in the bedrooms but recommend you bring an anti-mosquito spray and ensure that you wear long pants and/or a light, long sleeve shirt at night to protect your arms and legs, as a pre-cautionary measure.

There are banks with ATM’s in town for drawing cash. Please note that the banks will not accept any soiled US Dollar notes. The local supermarket and most restaurants do accept credit cards. Meticais is the currency used in Vilankulo.

When purchasing a pre-paid sim card, we recommend buying a Vodacom “Pay-as-you-go” card as the signal is better.

Please ensure that you bring an international plug, as the wall plugs at the lodge are square. There are hair-dryers available.

There are strict driving laws and it is not uncommon to be stopped by police. We recommend drivers ensure that all driving laws are adhered to. Check your vehicles before you leave, make sure all lights are working and ensure you wear seatbelts throughout your journey.

VILANKULO TOWN
If you would like to eat out at night, there are two restaurants in the immediate area and many more wonderful restaurants with great Mozambiquean cuisine.

Vilankulo town has two supermarkets. Most groceries are available although nothing is guaranteed. The local markets always have potatoes, tomatoes, onions, cabbage and fruit of the season. There is a very limited range of meat and chicken but it is available. Fresh fish, prawns and crabs can be arranged through the locals.

Fuel is available in town.
