Sava Dunes

Sava Dunes is wonderfully situated in a remote part of the Mozambican coastline. Nestled between the area of picturesque Barra and bustling Tofo lies Sava Dunes, surrounded by golden dunes and iconic ocean views.

Sava Dunes tops the standard in regards to location. Built atop sand dunes, the lodge is luxury and eco friendly, running completely off solar power. The lodge strives to provide a tranquil beach retreat yet also minimizing the carbon footprint. There are 5 Ocean Facing Cottages and 1 Garden View Family Chalet, each providing luxury amidst a wild, raw and rugged coastline.

The beach is a few meters from your doorstep, and offers warm waters with a peeling surfable wave ideal for bodyboarding. In season, whale-sharks and humpback whales frequent the area; and bottlenose dolphins are also commonly spotted.

The surrounding area is world-renowned for its ocean safaris - the perfect place for the ocean lover.

Authentic, off-the-grid, tranquil and luxurious - this is Sava Dunes, Mozambique’s best kept secret.

Where to find us

Sava Dunes is enviably located on a remote part of the Inhambane coastline in Mozambique. Located in Southern Mozambique, Sava Dunes can be found between the village of Tofo (roughly 5.5 km ) and Barra beach (1.5 km).

In terms of getting to the lodge, we recommend flying. Sava Dunes is a self-drive destination, but only seasoned 4x4’ers should attempt the beach road access. The roads are sandy and the location is remote. It requires a certain level of skill to navigate the dune landscape.

If you do wish to self-drive and do not have a 4x4 we do have an alternative parking option that can be booked for a daily charge, with return lodge transfers as an option.

You can either fly into Inhambane or Vilanculos. Inhambane is the closest airport at a mere 40 minute drive to the lodge. The lodge can arrange airport transfers for you. These road transfers are at an extra cost and will need to be arranged along with your booking.

Whichever method you choose, Sava is easily accessible, and we look forward to welcoming you to our little beach paradise.
