Sava Dunes Mozambique

Sava Dunes in Inhambane is a fantastic Mozambique Holiday Eco Lodge found in the Inhambane region close to Tofo and Barra beaches. It was previously called Blue Footprints but has now been taken over by new owners and renamed Sava Dunes. The focus is on the environment – abundant sea animals, rich cultural heritage, indigenous vegetation and seclusion. The ethic is green – off the grid facilities include solar power for electricity and borehole water.

Sava Dunes radiates peace and style, with only five suites for 10 guests, each with panoramic views of the blue ocean. The villas – with outside showers, day beds and hammocks – blend rustic and luxury elements, nestling in the dunes for complete privacy. Make this lodge a romantic getaway, a family reunion venue, a corporate business team-building setting or friends’ party place.
