After staying at Dugong Beach Lodge any readers of this blog will believe that being able to stay in such places is greatest benefit of this vocation.

This seaside spot serves as the arrival airport from Johannesburg and also as the embarkation point over to the beach lodges and resorts in the Bazaruto Archipelago.

The mix of restaurants, bars locals and ex pats is wide and varied given Tofo is such a small place. One of the real attractions here is the ability to walk to places of need and interest.
