Serenity Lodge

Serenity Lodge is situated close to Nhabanga, an idyllic spot to get away from the stresses of the city. A perfect place to relax and unwind. Canoes are for hire and trips to the mouth by boat can be arranged. There are scores of sand tracks that can be explored by quad bike or 4x4. The lagoon lends itself to water spots, so bring your towel or jet ski. Swimming is safe due to the shallowness of the lagoon and the water is always warm. At the mouth you can do safe snorkelling and depending on the season you can see whales and turtles in the ocean.
