Self-Catering Accommodation in Vilanculos at Chigamane Beach Villas from ZAR4,000.00 for a 4 Bedroom House. Situated 10km North of Vilanculos.

Chigamane Beach Villas are situated 10km North of Vilanculos on Chigamane Beach. The fully equipped and serviced, self catering beach villas have unrivalled views of Benguerra and Bazaruto islands.

Privacy, long white beaches and a pioneering sense of unspoilt Africa - all this enjoyed in comfort at Chigamane Beach Villas.

The villas are situated close enough to one another if you want to enjoy a holiday with a large group of people, yet distant enough to ensure privacy when you need it. Each villa has four bedrooms (sleep 11 people maximum in each of the villas), is fully equipped and extras include washing machines, ice makers and DSTV.

The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, walk in wardrobes and air conditioning. It is large enough to take a camp cot if necessary. The second and third bedrooms have built in cupboards and ceiling fans and share a bathroom. The open loft which sleeps 5, has its own bathroom.

The Villas are ten steps away from an endless, pristine beach. Enjoy walking for miles on the silky sand and cooling down in the clear blue waters.

For boating enthusiasts, there is a launch area a stone’s throw from the property and the local fishermen anchor close to the lodge so fresh fish are always in good supply.

The beach at Chigamane is ideal for families, as the vast tidal range means calm, shallow water for hundreds of metres, most of the year.

At sunset, enjoy a cocktail beside the pool, as the Vilanculos coastline settles down for another balmy night. The beauty of a visit to the lodge is the ‘forced relaxation’ – time is dictated by the tides as their endless rhythm soothes away urban stresses.

Relax. Enjoy. Chigamane.

Between the local supermarket and the informal market, most necessities can be obtained although the availability of provisions in Vilanculos is never guaranteed. Bring speciality goods with you as well as milk and eggs.

The local Vilanculos bakery sells fresh bread daily and there is usually a supply of freshly caught fish, crabs and crayfish to be purchased from local fishermen – try to do this on the beach rather than in town. Take your own scale with you and watch the packaging of your purchases carefully as local shellfish sellers are extremely adept at false weighing and making the odd crayfish disappear somewhere between purchase and packing!

A visit to the market used by the villagers should be made at least once, to experience local colour and flavour and some good bargains.

The water at Chigamane is safe to drink but many visitors prefer to bring bottled water.
