Pomene is an unspoilt paradise situated on the Mozambique coast halfway between Vilanculos and Inhambane. 

Pomene offers world-class fishing and snorkelling as well as miles of pristine beaches. It has fantastic panoramic views of the estuary and surrounds and is a five minute walk from the beach. 



Within 100kms distance from this Lodge, is located the well known Extreme Drop Off. Offering a gradual decent, this area of the ocean reaches depths of 2400m and provides amazing fishing opportunities!


Warm water currents bring game fish right inshore.  Large Kingfish (Trevallies), Bonitos, Queen Fish and many other species can be caught on fly from the beach, in the estuary and from boats drifting close inshore.  There are some very shallow reefs 44m to 6m deep that produce all your game species and are ideal for the fly fishing enthusiasts.


Pomene North Bank has kilometres and kilometres of productive fishing beaches awaiting you whether you are spooning, plugging, drop shotting or throwing Bait.  Couta, snoek, many kingfish (GT, Ignobolis, bluefin, big eye), stump nose, lemon sharks, blacktip reef sharks, blackfin, duckbill, brown skates, sand sharks, pompano, to name just a few have been landed.  Many kingfish are caught in the river mouth and couta in the estuary.  Guided Rock and Surf Trips can be arranged.


We can launch your boat in the estuary on the day you arrive and this is where it remains, safe and secure, until the day you leave.  No need to take it out on a daily basis!  

Deepsea fishing in Pomene Bay will test any top angler’s skills and their tackle. The best fishing to be had is between October and June, although no boat has come in empty-handed as yet…Species likely to be encountered are King and Queen Mackerel, Queen Fish, Wahoo, Ignobilis King Fish, Bonito, Dog Tooth Tuna, Yellow-fin Tuna,  Albacore, Pick Handle and True Barracuda, with Bill Fish being landed during the summer months.

Guests can charter a fully equipped lodge boat with an experienced skipper who knows the waters well for Deep-Sea, Fly, and Drop-Shot Fishing.  Details such as bait and tackle can be provided for onboard.


Is there a fuel station in Pomene?

No, but there is a fuel station in Massinga which is approximately 50km from Pomene. Though, do make sure you fill up your tank in Inhambane incase Massinga fuel supply runs out from the influx of tourists.

Fuel is cheaper in their local currency (meticais) compared to rands (or dollars). We suggest you fill-up before entering Mozambique's borders and fuel is more expensive the further north you travel!

Do I need a 4x4 to get to Pomene?

Yes, You do need a 4x4 but only in the last few kilometres to Pomene. Contact the lodge that you are staying at to ask if they have got a safe parking zone if you are travelling in a normal sedan vehicle and if they can pick you up.

We always recommend you enter Mozambique in a 4x4 because you won't be limited to where you can travel as well as the possibility of getting stuck. Note: Some borders require a 4x4 to cross. Read more about the border you are travelling through here: Mozambique Borders & Times.

For soft/loose sand driving, we recommend you deflate your tire pressures to about 1.4 bar.

Is it okay to drive at night?

We advise you not to drive at night.

Are there Banks or ATMS in Pomene?

No, only Major towns in Mozambique have Banks and ATMS. The closest town on-route to Pomene to draw money (local currency) is in Inhambane. Inhambane does have a bank.

Be prepared and withdraw a sufficient amount of money in the country you are travelling from to avoid inconveniences. Keep your money in a safe/discreet place.

Are there credit card facilities in Pomene?

We advise you confirm prior with the lodge you're staying at if they offer credit card facilities. Otherwise cash is only accepted in small shops and markets.

Is there a shop or market where I can buy groceries and supplies in Pomene?

No, there are roadside markets in Massinga, selling fresh produce and fruit but no supermarkets ... but there are Markets that sell fresh produce, meat and fish in Inhambane. Though we advise that you purchase Fish and other Seafood from the Fisherman in Tofo (12km away from Inhambane) and not from the Market. pau (Portuguese rolls) and other bread is sold at the local Bakery in Inhambane.

We also advise that you buy and take your own vacuum-packed meat from South Africa for the first night or 2 (if you are going to be self catering) in a cooler box with ice. Check with the lodge if they sell ice or if they have a freezer to store your meat during your stay.

Is Pomene a malaria area and do I need to take anti-malaria medication?

Yes, Mozambique as a whole is a malaria-risk area/country. We recommend you take precautions and visit your nearest doctor (you need a prescription for anti-malaria medication) to prescribe you with what's recommended before you leave for Mozambique.

It is strongly advised that you take other prophylactics like insect repellent sprays, mosquito coils, light long sleeve tops and bottoms to further prevent bites (especially during late afternoons, evenings and mornings).

The setting of the restaurant on the Water’s Edge creates the ambiance and lends itself for clients to enjoy a delicious breakfast or family lunch while parents can watch their children play safely in the clear and tranquil waters of the lagoon. Afternoons are a must for one of its delicious cocktails or a romantic dinner; we assure you that you will not want to leave once you have experienced our restaurant.

Full DSTV for the sports enthusiasts and while watching the sport and enjoying a few drinks you can order a delicious supper or snacks.

To ensure guests have an awesome experience our restaurant hosts regular theme parties where young and old can enjoy themselves starting with a “Welcoming Delicious Cocktail” and then, let the party begin! On these evenings we offer a set menu.
