Designed to blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings, the lodge features a swimming pool with a swim-up bar, a spacious deck, and an outdoor dining area overlooking the stunning Inhambane coastline.

The accommodation comprises just five ocean-facing cottages positioned just steps away from the beach, each with private decks offering uninterrupted ocean views.

While at Sava Dunes, guests are invited to enjoy the famous beach bar for delectable cocktails, and the dining areas in the main lodge serving seasonal dishes and a combination of traditional seafood.

Sava Dunes Setting

While the whole country is known for its scenic beauty and abundant natural attractions, perhaps the most popular region of Mozambique for tourism is the southern area – especially for lovers of the ocean and an island-like tropical climate. Southern Mozambique's coastline is renowned as a hub for diving and surfing enthusiasts, offering thrilling encounters with dolphins and even majestic whale sharks.

When staying at Sava Dunes, guests will experience a truly authentic and serene beach escape while exploring the area's renowned ocean safaris. With an array of sea and beach activities available, such as surfing, diving, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, and whale shark spotting, Sava Dunes provides an ideal retreat for beach enthusiasts.

Reviews

  • Amazing location!

    We loved the wild location (unique for Tofo) and the breathtaking views of the ocean. I can only imagine the amount of whales and dolphins that are spotted from here in season. The food was great and the acting hosts and really looked after us super well!
