Why we Love Naara Eco Lodge in Xai Xai

Guests can only reach remote Naara by high-rise 4x4 vehicle in its location on the banks of Nhambavale Lake as it hides behind the ocean dunes in nature

A true eco-lodge that uses sun energy for lights, appliances, and hot water, and the raised villas (built from local materials with canvas walls) have as little impact on nature as possible to reduce its carbon footprint

The superb and serene lake is the perfect backdrop for this eco lodge and invites guests to try swimming, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing and birding

Convenient spa treatments available at the Natura Spa looking out over the lake from its wooden platform - massages, facials, skin rubs and other therapies for body and mind rejuvenation
