Pebane Fishing Lodge

Listed under Lodges and Ranches in Mozambique.

Pin It

Pebane is perhaps a little off the beaten track if you are not travelling in a small plane, however it is certainly worth a detour if you can make it. This is too far from South Africa to be tourist country, too far from anywhere really, and that is what makes it so special. Our host Chris bought fresh prawns on the way in from the airstrip, and these cooked later in garlic and hot sauce were among the high points of the visit to Mozambique. The lodges’ cabins are spread out along the white shoreline with sand so hard we could have easily landed our little planes on it. You can walk for miles in either direction, and the water was warm enough to swim in even in the middle of their winter, which is not exactly cold, but the leaves do fall from some trees, and inland it gets chilly at night.

This is another lodge which concentrates on sports fishing, but for limited numbers as they only operate one boat which is hauled across the beach to the water on a trailer, but they say it is some of the best fishing in the world. The whole operation is run by one couple who are avid fishermen needless to say, and who make their guests extremely welcome, and who went out of their way to accommodate all our extra needs for fuel for aircraft etc.

Highly recommended!
