Why we love Just in Time

The perfect holiday for family and friends in a gorgeous holiday resort sprawling along the shores of a large lagoon just outside of Praia do Bilene.

This is a true ‘Out of Africa’ experience complete with stunning facilities in a tropical haven known for its astonishing inland lake, perfect for all water sports.

Families with children can spend all day in the warm, safe waters of the calm lake boating, fishing, swimming and trying numerous water sports.
