Casa Rei Beach Lodge situated on the North shore of the Pomene Estuary +-650km North of Maputo 50km off the main road between Maxixe and Vilonculos. The Pomene Estuary is nursery to an abundance of Sea Life, Flamingos and the occasional sighting of very rare Dugong with kilometers of tidal water washing through untouched mangrove swamps.
Access to 30km of uninhabited coastline stretching to the North, A multitude of fishing sites within an easy cast from the shore where game fish are regularly taken including the warrior Ignoblis Kingfish and the feisty King Mackerel “Cuta”
If Skiboat fishing is your passion or Scuba diving your pleasure, all reefs are within a 20 minute boat ride with depths coming up to 6 meters and dropping of to 200 meters and beyond only miles of the coast line. Bill-fish, Wahoo, Dorado, to challenge your angling skills and Whale Shark, Grouper, Manta Ray and Turtle to please the eye in world-class dive sites.

Or Chalet Accommodation:
We have a number of privately owned chalets to rent. These are either three or four bedroom chalets with estuary behind and beach in front. Fully furnished just bring your own linen. This is for the fairer guests who enjoy that African experience with the more homely comforts. A resident local employee will take away all those chores to make your stay a carefree relaxing experience for all.
The Pomene Estuary offers a full range of species taken on fly or light tackle from Grunter, Kingfish, Cuta, Bonefish too name but a few. With over 20 square kilometers of tidal water to explore. Kingies are prone to small spoons or light coloured clouser fly’s, while Mangrove red Snapper can’t resist small plugs offered to them along the peat banks and a fresh live bait always produces the goods.
From the shore larger spoons and plugs will have you anchored into some solid Kingfish and Cuta, with the lighter tackle hooked into the never say die Pompano. Kite fishing is an option with Billfish taken in the old day’s from the Pomene Rocks. One of my favorites is fishing for Stumpnose into the rising moon with the setting sun at your back using crab legs or the ever-present sea lice.
You may prefer to patrol the back line on one of the Fishing Surfski’s available to hire or bring your own. Again the gamefish are at your beck and call.
Pomene Skiboat fishing must be one of the world’s best destinations with the Mozambique Channel closer to the coastline then anywhere else along the African coast. The Gamefish species are prolific from Tuna to Wahoo to Billfish all within a stone throw from the back line to no more then 6 miles out to sea. Bring your own boat or speak to your Host about hiring his boat and his 50 years of local knowledge. Please release what doesn’t make the pot!
Snorkeling in and around the submerged tree stumps in the Estuary you will enjoy sightings of Firefish, Angelfish, Stonefish, Shrimpfish, Sea Horse, the list goes on!
A day’s outing to Pomene Point and the rock pools will have you swimming amongst baitfish washed over on the high tide waiting the next tide to escape again into the predator’s jaws over the ledge.
The local Dive School offers scuba charters at a nominal rate where you will hear and probably utter the words yourself; “Awesome!!”, “Amazing!!”, “As good as any where in the world and that is saying something!!”
