Clothing & Accessories:

We have a wonderful mix of Arabic, African & Portuguese cultures. Generally people are conservative. Please respect this and dress appropriately in public places. Men keep their shirts on, ladies no bikini tops in town, wear blouse over the bikini, with shorts or wrap a sarong around.

Take note that some people do not want to be photographed, some want payment, but others love it, especially if you have a digital and show the photo's.

If you try to communicate in Portuguese you will gain much respect, and have much more fun.

Please bring ankle boots for the sharp rocks on the islands as well as swimming towels. The lodge supplies bath towels.

Health & Climate:

Health precautions:
No vaccinations are required. Take precautions against malaria, malanil or neflian is affable pills. Artecospe malaria treatment can be buying at Vilanculos Chemist.The hospital in Vilanculos are excellent for things like Malaris tests - the equipment is sterile and you get the result in 15 minutes - Unlike in South Africa, where it can take up to 12 hours!

Bring along the following personal medication: imodium, antihistamine creams, insect and mosquito repellent, suntan and block out creams. It is a good idea to drink bottled water, buy at Taurus Supermarket.
Aqueous cream with a few drops of citronella and lemon grass essential oils make a wonderful moisturizer and it wards off the insects too.

Vilanculos seldom gets cold, but on some evenings during the winter months June and July a light jacket will be necessary. The summer months of November through to February can be hot. Safari cream of Dr Hardy de Beer available in RSA very effective for the sun.

Casa Chibububo Lodge Guest Review

  4.0 out of 5 based on 1 review.

Value for money! The host (Steward) was friendly and helpful. He is fluent in English which went a long way in figuring our way around the town and the locals. The house is well maintained, has a balcony with a view of the ocean. We had most our dinners prepared by the lodge's cook- most divine seafood I've had in my life! I wasn't a huge fan of fish but now I'm totally hooked. My husband and I will definitely be returning! The only bad thing I can attach to the lodge is their accessibility. They need signs directing towards the lodge on the paths that lead up to the lodge. We spent over an hour trying to find it.
