The riches of Mozambique

Vilankulo, known as Vilankulos during colonial times, is a coastal town in of Vilanculos district of Inhambane province. Vilankulo is named after a local tribal chief,  Gamela Vilankulo Mukoke.

It is a popular tourist destination for the inspired traveller and has a number of resorts to accommodate all tastes and pockets.

Stayed in Casa Jules which offers great accommodation and atmosphere. Owned and run by Valerie and , they will make you feel at home. The food is excellent and fresh from the sea if you order fish or gambas. The pizza oven delivers the best pizzas I have ever had !

There is a small shimming pool but very well tended and keeps you cool when temperatures soar. The staff is super friendly and will do anything to help.

Kuysaka cafe is run by Valerie and serves breakfast or lunch. Opened until 5 i is a haven of peace and tranquility but for the ocean. The view is idyllic and i stayed there for many hours just sipping fresh smoothies ! and there is even a hammock for you to relax in.
