Scuba Diving

Guinjata Bay is a world-renown scuba diving location with many different local diving sites such as the Reef, Paindane X-press, Turtle Creek, Egypt, Hard Rock, Devils Peak, Caves, Pao, Batfish, Coral Gardens and Fishbowl. All these sites can be accessed without permits and don’t require advanced scuba diving skills but to be on the safe side, always take an experienced diver along.

With the necessary permits, guest’s have the opportunity to scuba dive in some of the world’s most astounding dive sites, such as the Manta Reef; This reefs popularity comes from all the Manta Rays in the area and is guaranteed to be a dive you never forget. Positioning yourself correctly, you could get one of these graceful creatures swimming right over you! The depth of the dive is between 21 and 30 meters deep and is home to Potato Bass, Red Fang Trigger Fish, Yellow Snappers, Bigeyes and many more species to be seen.

Fishing

Guinjata Bay accommodates all types of fishing, you can choose between fly fishing, rock or surf fishing or you can go all out and cast off the side of a boat in the middle of the ocean (deep-sea fishing). Mainly targeting the game fish species such as Kingfish, Tuna and Greater Barracuda. It could be your lucky day as hooking a Sailfish is not that uncommon, but be sure to take pictures/videos if you do catch one because some would think it’s a fisherman’s tale. The largest Blue Sailfish ever caught in Guinjata Bay weighed an astonishing 448kg and was caught on December 22 in 2019.

End the day off by spending time with friends and family and watching the calming sunset with your drink in your one hand and some braai tongs in the other.

For prospective guests who choose Guinjane Lodge as their preferred Mozambique Accommodation Self Catering for the first time, we provide the following tips when traveling to Mozambique:

  • Visa requirements in Mozambique

  • We recommend that guests obtain their visas prior to travelling to Mozambique. If you are a South Africans citizen, a visa is not required when you go on holiday in Mozambique. Business and  Tourist visas are normally valid for 2 months only which means that your visa has to be used within 2 months of the date of being issued (with stays between 30 to 90 days). A passport must still be valid 6 months after the date of your return with at least 2 blank pages in it.

  • The authorities will accept EU emergency passports (ETD). Visas for a 30 day period and entry can be obtained upon arrival at the international airports in Mozambique, including Vilankulo and Maputo as well as when you cross the border into Mozambique from the neighbouring countries. You can pay for visas in South African Rand or US Dollar (in cash) It is recommended that children travel on their own passports.

  • Malaria precaution

  • Please note that Mozambique is a country where you run the a risk of contracting Malaria and because there is no vaccine against malaria we recommend that you take the necessary precaution and speak to your doctor about taking malaria pills before entering the country. Don’t forget to bring along mosquito repellents,

  • Travel insurance

  • If you are flying to Mozambique from other countries – we recommend that you get the necessary holiday travel insurance to cover you in case of any emergency.
