Nahyeeni Private Lodge Inhaca Island, Inhaca Island, Mozambique
Nahyeeni Private Lodge
Nestled on a hilltop and set within serene, indigenous gardens affording breathtaking panoramic views of the Bay of Maputo and Ilha das Portugueses, Nahyeeni Private and Exclusive Lodge on Inhaca Island in Mozambique is located within its own exclusive grounds overlooking the Indian Ocean and is the perfect place to relax and unwind in complete privacy, whilst still offering a tropical Island adventure with a wealth of breathtaking beaches, coral reefs and exotic marine life. Currently offering self catering facilities with the ability to accommodate up to a maximum of 10 adults and 4 children, Nahyeeni Lodge with its main house (Beluga) has an imposing thatched roof constructed from the locally grown majeka reed, incorporating 2 en-suite bedrooms – one with a double bed and a sumptuous bath, whilst the second offers 2 single beds with en suite shower. A stunning open plan fully modern kitchen/lounge/dining room is complemented with truly outstanding panoramic views overlooking the Bay of Maputo on the western side of Inhaca Island – Maputo City can be viewed twinkling in the distance some 40kms away! An upstairs area incorporates a further 2 single beds, with the bedroom affording incredible views of the interior of Inhaca Island as far away as the lighthouse (Farol) on the northern tip and Machangulo Peninsula on the Southern tip. A cozy reading nook, with a small but fascinating library selection, with particular emphasis on marine life, further enhances the upstairs facility. A full DSTV bouquet, ice making machine, fresh drinking water facility, tea, coffee and a limited assortment of condiments are all available (please see our Lodge facilities page for further information). Privately nestled in the surrounding bush area, 2 open plan thatched cottages await the intrepid traveler – Chalet Dugong consists of a double bed with en suite bathroom, whilst Chalet Orca offers 2 single beds and en suite bathroom. Both of these cottages have access to a further bed which either 2 children or an extra adult could also be accommodated. The entertainment area consists of a very large fresh water swimming pool with bar, braai, serving and open fire facilities, with a cozy thatched dining area located alongside, all conveniently overlooking the magnificent Indian Ocean. Charcoal and firewood / logs are complimentary. A wooden deck stretches out over the edge of the hill and splits into 2 areas, one has a private hammock for your relaxation, whilst the other affords incredible panoramic views and sunsets that will remain imbedded on the memory for years to come. Although a self catering Lodge at this time, Nahyeeni employs 2 permanent maids and a gardener/maintenance man available on duty every day for your convenience, whilst 2 guards oversee the property during the night hours. A laundry service is also available on request.

The Lodge has 2 sea kayaks available for usage at your leisure, single and double skull, and we highly recommend an early morning paddle on the serene, clear, turquoise waters as the sun slowly rises over the Island from the east.
Alternately you can paddle your way along the shoreline south to visit the Museum at the Biology Station or paddle north where you will pass the local airport and then drift amongst the spectacular mangrove swamps with their exceptionally crystal clear waters â€“ whichever way, make sure you pack some refreshments, hat and sun lotion!
Whilst the sun is setting in the western skies over the distant silhouetted shapes of Maputo City, pamper yourselves with a sunset cruise and maximize the tranquility of the moment!
The cruise will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, excluding drinks.
In season from July to November
During the months of July to the end of November migrating Humpback Whales and the occasional Southern Right Whale frequent the shores of Inhaca to mate, give birth and nurture their offspring before making their long and arduous trip back to the Antarctic to feed. Up to between 30 to 40 Humpback Whales a day have been spotted on occasion around Inhaca Island.
These are particularly special and cherished months where we can observe, understand and learn about these mighty creatures and share in their tenderness for their offspring as they interact with each other. We marvel at the power of their breaching, at their curiosity in spy hopping and at the complex social structure as posses of powerful males all vie for the attention of one female to gain the right to mate. Whale watching is a truly inspirational experience for all concerned.
The trip can take up to 3 hours and sighting of Whales is not guaranteed. Please look out for the Bottlenose and Spinner Dolphins who are frequently spotted around the northern waters of Inhaca Island.
