  Casa Chibububo - Patience will reward you
(South Africa)   Mr Thorburn 02 July 2009
Our arrival was greeted with a drum tattoo, and huge smiles.
It took patience however to get the electricity (temperamental generator) and lights and water going, but Roberto the chef (where was the manager) eventually sorted things out - except there was no cold beer available. The second evening, he did however produce a memorable supper, in true Mozambican style.
A stunning sunrise will greet you from the balcony, we found Vilankulo very African, we avoided the worst of the potholes, and can recommend a few days sailing round and exploring the islands by dhow.

  Highly recommended
(South Africa)   anonymous 15 June 2009
Great, friendly service, wonderful accommodation with a beautiful view. The places are furnished beautifully with everything you will need. When our car broke down the lodge manager gave us his vehicle to use for 3 days! The chef arranged seafood (at cheaper than the tourist price) and prepared it for us. There is also a domestic worker to clean daily. The activities offered (snorkelling etc.) are a little pricey so we used the touring companies in town instead. We will definitely stay at Casa Chibububo again.
