5 Luxury getaways in Mozambique for couples

Mozambique for couples

With the variety of luxury getaways in Mozambique for couples, it’s almost as if the landscape was made especially for them.

This little-explored African wonder offers a level of exclusivity which can often be hard to find on those more popular Indian Ocean superpowers like Mauritius and the Seychelles. As a whole, it is pretty much untouched by modern tourism, while the hotels and lodges are nevertheless outstanding, offering total seclusion, and managing to blur the lines between opulence and barefoot luxury.

In Mozambique couples can also reap the benefits of both bush and beach, and besides it being easy to get to, with Maputo only an hour’s flight from Johannesburg, no visa is required for certain SADC nationals, so the choice is yours on when you want to bring along your beau.

From luxury accommodation at the exclusive barefoot camp, Anvil Bay which is situated in the wildlife hotspot of Gorongosa National Park, to resort and spa living along the Bazaruto shoreline, here are Dana’s top five luxury getaways in Mozambique for couples.
