The Lodge combines stylish elegance with the local and traditional. Step out of your comfortable bungalow and within minutes you will find yourself on a long, deserted sandy beach peopled only by the local fishermen with their dugout canoes. Visit our local communities and experience traditional African culture and hospitality. Enjoy fresh fish daily or the delicious Zambezian specialities of the region on the spacious porch of the sea-facing restaurant. Engage in a kayaking adventure or simply relax all day on the beach or by the pool. Zalala has something for everyone!

Great time enjoying the beach wide and open, full of life, the nights are awesome, watching the stars. Talking and enjoying warm air. The food is also very tasty. Seafood was delicious as the local specialities. Warm showers, no mosquitoes in the rooms, relaxing and cosy atmosphere.
