Situated on the beachfront of Vilanculo, though recessed from the main beachfront road by a long driveway, Zombie is one of the nicest backpackers in Vilanculo, with a pool, double and dorm accommodation kept neat and clean (itself a luxury in much of Mozambique). A central bar and hangout area with book exchange and interesting groups moving through the place in the day makes a rainy day more entertaining than might otherwise be the case in the wet season. Managed (for the time that I was there) by Sabrina and Denis from Odyssey dive safaris on behalf of the owners, who had been away for a few months, it is well worth considering as a well-located option when backpacking through Vilanculo. By way of introduction from Sabrina and Denis and the daytime managers Ricardo and Narcisso, I met a wealth of interesting people and thoroughly enjoyed my time spent there. I cannot recommend the place highly enough for travellers passing through or spending some time in Vilanculo.
