By far the best lodge in tofo and barra We spent 10 days at Blue Footprints and it was truly an unreal experience. The lodge is nestled between tofo and barra, both in easy reach. It is by far the best set up lodge on that coastline, within close reach of the action but also private so you can take...

5 stars and worth every one. Our stay at this beautiful beach-side resort was nothing short of magical. The rooms are are perfectly situated on the picturesque dunes that overlook a quiet beach.

We just returned from an amazing family vacation at the BlueFootprints Lodge. The Lodge is in an absolutely spectacular location. The 5 chalets quite remote but are close enough to walk or drive to Barra or Tofo, and when you want to just relax there's a great deck and pool. All the chalets have a magnificent view, looking directly onto...

My wife and I spent four nights at Blue Footprints and it is without question one of the best places we've ever stayed. It is true eco-luxury, 100% self-sustaining but with no comfort and service sacrificed whatsoever. Amazing staff who cater to your ever need. Magnificent rooms that have stunning views of the Indian ocean. You will likely see more...

We were blown away when we arrived at Blue Footprints to a very warm welcome, special drinks and snacks and one of the most beautiful views. Our stay was excellent, we enjoyed the remoteness and peacefulness of the lodge, the beach to ourselves and the wonderful fresh food. We were so torn between all the things to do in Inhambane...

We stayed here for our honeymoon in 2013 and after reading the reviews, we were slightly apprehensive... could it really be that good?! Yes, yes it could! I feel uncomfortable if people make a big fuss of me and the staff here are just great, it's like staying with friends. Nothing was too much trouble (we don't eat seafood!) and...
