Health & Climate:

Health precautions:
Vilanculos is situated in a Malaria area, please bring enough mosquito repellent for you and your family. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist regarding preventative care for malaria.
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 available at the supermarkets.
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, humid and rainy.

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.
