Where to stay in Inhambane – Dunes de Dovela 

You stay in luxury bungalows in their private spaces in the dune vegetation with ensuite outside showers, king beds and exquisite views. The unique bush camp is made for sole-use groups of 8 people who stay in dome tents with access to the beach and ocean. One tent is completely private on its own deck while two tents cater for a family or group of four – all sharing luxury bathrooms and social areas.

A network of shady marked paths leads you from your bungalow or tent to the restaurant, sea, viewing platforms and through the forest. In the restaurant at Dunes de Dovela, Mozambican specialities and French recipes are combined to create new, seasonal flavours. Locally produced vegetables, fruit, fish and lobster are the highlights in a healthy, varied and delicious cuisine. The quality of food, service and atmosphere in the restaurant are all worthy of a restaurant in France.

In the heat of the day, come and relax on the shady patio or browse through the library which includes books on local customs and traditions and local flora and fauna. In the evening, enjoy a glass of Tipo Tinto in the welcoming bar or a cocktail around the campfire under the stars.
