Set on the pristine shores of the Maputuland coast, this 12-room luxury lodge is the ideal place to discover the coastal forests, grasslands, bush, shimmering lakes and sandy beaches of Mabibi.

Set above a secluded bay, Thonga Beach Lodge is in a beautiful coastal dune forest with sweeping views of the stunning beach below. The spacious, thatched suites are hidden in the coastal dune forest and raised on wooden stilts to ensure no harm comes to the delicate dune soils.

Some rooms offer sea views, whilst others are set within the dune forest, and all have private balconies and are decorated with bleached wood, glass and natural materials to create an open, airy feel. The en-suite rooms have a bathroom with bath and shower. The lounge with its comfortable couches and a cosy fireplace offers spectacular views of the beach and is the ideal spo (other than by the pool) to relax with a sundowner. Activities from the lodge include snorkelling, diving, bird-watching, wilderness walks, fishing and turtle spotting.
