Every morning coffee was brought to our room and we sipped and watched whales breech and frolic. It was absolutely surreal. The staff was amazing, and the beach was spectacular. I loved walking in either direction to cafes, or small towns. The area was safe, the lodge friendly and the ambience magical. I loved the relaxed nature of the staff... More

Every morning started with the sun showing up from beneath the sea's horizon, gently lighting up the day and highlighting the sprays of the whale's breaths revealing their secret spots in the water.. It was just magical!! I would watch this all so clearly from my room's deck with a flask and fresh coffee which woukd be personally delivered. Following... More

Blue footprint lodge was nice as for the location, the secluded beach and the premises around the main building. And of course the staff that is always happy to fulfil your wishes. But for me the room itself was small – no space to store backpacks properly and the missing door to the toilet and shower is negative. On the... More

It was a perfect romantic and relaxing getaway. The location is fabulous and so quiet. We woke up watching the whales playing in the ocean and fell asleep with the stars and the sounds of the waves. The service was perfect and personal. Liz and her team were friendly, helpful and discreet. The food plentiful and delicious. The fact that... More

Stayed here at the end of our trip to Mozambique at Easter and didn't want to leave. We weren't expecting such stunning accommodation and the views were just amazing. Food was the best we'd had all trip. We went to dive and hadn't really thought about who would look after our daughter but nothing was too much trouble for the... More

This wonderfull lodge is hidden away in the sand dunes in a very enjoyable sollitude. Only 5 houses, 2 beds each. The perfect place to chill out and enjoy sand, beach ocean and great sunrises. A high-light but also a warning is that it is a bit difficult to be "connected" all the time. If you need, request in advance... More

I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to visit this beautiful, peaceful place. The ocean views from my room and from every part of the lodge were so so stunning and the miles of pristine beach were perfect for long, lovely walks (often with the good company of Liz, and the friendly resident dogs) The food was delicious,...

Amazing 5 rooms eco-lodge. Personnel were the ones who built the place powered only by solar panels, and they were adorable diving instructors. So remote, facing a coast of yellow ocre sand bathed by a 29 degrees C Indian ocean. The rooms are all facing the sea and you have your own hammock. Dinner is included and they even have... More

There is nothing to be faulted about Blue Footprints and a lot to commend. It is in a lovely private location and there only 5 separate secluded rooms so it is never crowded. It overlooks the ocean and a beautiful sandy beach used by very very few people, mainly the occasional fisherman. All the staff are so friendly, very helpful... More
