Blue Footprints Eco Lodge is situated on a secluded private beach in the Tofo Barra area of Inhambane. The lodge has been specifically designed to ensure that from the bar, restaurant, lounge, pool and guest villas spectacular views of the Indian Ocean can be enjoyed. The Lodge is remotely situated and therefore offers its guests a pristine stretch of beach that is not overcrowded with holidaymakers.
Accommodation at Blue Footprints Eco Lodge is limited to only 5 villas, each boasting spectacular views over the ocean. The villas are a mix of rustic and luxury elements, set in the dune so as to provide privacy and solitude. The villas all feature en-suite facilities (shower only), with an outside deck, day bed and outdoor shower. Note that as this is an eco-lodge there is no air conditioning in the villas, instead, they are cooled by the sea breeze that blows in off the Indian Ocean. All power to the lodge is supplied by solar energy.
Guests are treated to the unique Mozambique flavours at meals times in the restaurant. Fresh produce and seafood are carefully selected from local suppliers and fishermen to ensure a varied, delicious and memorable dining experience at the lodge.
The scuba diving in the Barra / Tofo area is truly spectacular and especially known for it whale shark and manta rays sightings that can be enjoyed almost all year round. There are also some amazing research projects happening in the area of these species. Guests can also expect to see Humpback whales in the area from June to October. Although there is no scuba centre at the lodge, the team can make arrangements with nearby dive centres on behalf of clients.
