Coral Lodge, Mozambique, launches treasure filled children’s programme
By Katie Hamilton
Newly opened Coral Lodge 15.41 in Northern Mozambique has just launched a children’s programme with such exciting adventures that even the adults will be jealous! The locals in the surrounding villages recently found an old treasure map stating that there is hidden treasure somewhere near Coral Lodge and all of the younger guests are invited to help find it!
The lodge is surrounded by a privately owned nature reserve full of untouched beaches, dunes and mangroves – perfect for kids to explore. The new activities include the PADI Bubblemaker course, island beach picnics, guided nature walks, canoe trips, windsurfing and treasure hunts.
Children wanting to take their first steps into the world of diving can do so at Coral Lodge with the PADI Bubblemaker course. The lodge’s highly qualified dive master teaches the kids how to use the equipment and when ready, takes the young divers out to the laguna for a shallow dive amongst the fishes. For those not ready to go underwater, the dive master takes the children exploring in the laguna and mangroves to find out about all the amazing creatures that live there.
The water sports enthusiasts in the family can try out windsurfing where they are taken out to sea with an instructor and taught how to ride the waves. Alternatively, kids and parents can embark on a mangrove canoe trip where a guide is on hand to teach them about the nature that lies within the laguna. For the budding fisherman, Coral Lodge offers fishing trips on the dhow where children can catch barracuda and feed the family for dinner!
For those kids preferring to stay on land, Coral Lodge organises island beach picnics. Loaded with delicious food, they moor onto a deserted beach and enjoy beach games, guided nature walks and a beautiful picnic. The English speaking guide teaches the children about the unusual flora and fauna that are resident to the area. Sports such as frisbee and volleyball are great fun to play on the beach and a perfect way to work up an appetite before enjoying a sumptuous dinner back at the lodge.
For those wanting a break from the outdoors, Coral Lodge can teach the children to make shell jewellery from all the beautiful shells that lie on the beach – a handmade necklace or bracelet is the perfect souvenir to take home from Mozambique. For the older children, Coral Lodge can lend them a video camera and assist them in making a home video of their stay at the lodge. The kids take their videos home, ensuring they will never forget their time in magical Mozambique.
