Located on the iconic and beautiful Island of Bazaruto is a uniquely designed island paradise escape known as Zenguelemo. The lodge is thoughtfully connected to the ocean, nature, and the people. In a nutshell, Zenguelemo is an eco-community lodge that is particularly designed to co-exist with and give back to the beautiful island through sustainable ecosystems.
The lodge is owned by the community and partnered with private professionals such as Anac, Moz Bio, Far & Wild Zimbabwe, and Bazaruto Archipelago National Park who came together and created what you will experience on your visit.
Team to visit.
Zenguelemo was designed and constructed with sustainability ideas in mind. The lodge is continuously developing, and the management strives to adapt to the natural world as they remain eco-minded as much as possible. From building the lodge using local techniques to the state-of-the-art solar system, Zenguelemo is determined to lessen its footprint more and more.
The Zenguelemo experience is one of a lifetime discovery for all who seek a different experience altogether. Wake up to the morning sunrise with birds singing, and reptiles soaking up the sun as you lay back and enjoy local community life and breathe in the fresh air. This is where you will truly find solace in little things as you explore the island. Go for a dive adventure and explore the sea life, the colorful fish, the coral reefs, and the crustaceans.
The backbone of Zenguelemo is the surrounding community. For decades these inhabitants have lived on this island and sustained their way of life with fishing as their main livelihood. The lodge, therefore, generates a sustainable amount of income for the community to minimize its impact on the environment. The lodge employs its staff from the community of Bazaruto Islands. All members of staff are trained to provide passion-driven service to make your experience as friendly and enjoyable as possible.
