Khumbula iMozambique is located in the Inhambane Province of Mozambique. 

It is approximately 485km north of the Maputo capital and 26km south of the Inhambane town.


The Chalet is part of a beach resort and is situated on high dunes overlooking the Paindane Bay, 

ensuring a constant sea breeze from the Indian Ocean and a virtually mosquito-free environment.

This bay is protected by the Paindane Reef, creating a safe swimming area and unique snorkeling opportunities.

The bay also ensures a safe platform from which to launch boats both at high and low tides.
