A Mozambique Lodge, set in Beautiful Guinjata Bay
The warm Mozambique coast is beckoning.
With its incredibly laid back vibe, its welcoming people, and its stunning lodges, this is one destination that should rank high up on your bucket list. Mozambique has for a long time been that off the beaten track retreat, but these days, with Mozambique developing its very own, unique tourism sector, this is a nation that is no longer just for that intrepid traveller looking for adventure.
For those wanting that once in a lifetime holiday, or for anyone wanting to have their very own regular vacation destination, Mozambique is a mysterious place that is easy to fall in love with.
The turquoise waters, filled with a vibrant and eccentric tropical aquatic life, shimmering sandy white beaches perfect for a laidback lazy afternoon, and an energetic selection of coastal sports to indulge in, Mozambique is one of those countries that could easily be classified as an island if it weren’t attached to the continent.
In many ways, Mozambique can be seen as two separate countries. The south is developed and home to colonial style buildings as well as modern infrastructure, while a drive into the northern territories gives way to bush and rugged landscapes, rural villages and indigenous untouched coastlines.
Mozambique is, for the first time traveller, a surreal place with a personality and culture that might at first seem rather outlandish. But once you get into the swing of things and you make peace with the fact that this is not the sort of country where anything is rushed, you will find that you couldn’t have chosen a better holiday destination to unwind in.
The Mozambique lodge comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Some are large and cater to the bigger tourist crowds, the kind who are travelling in groups and on a budget, while others are ultra-exclusive and have been built in old colonial beach front villas, offering a more secluded experience.
And then there is the self-catered options, which are also divided into specific categories.
You have the self-catered Mozambique lodge which consists solely of camping in a very rough and rugged sort of way, and then you get the self-catered option that is a lot more comfortable, with proper rooms and onsite activities.
At Golden Palms Beach Resort and Lodge , we are the more luxury type of self-catered retreat. We have stylish rooms that look out over the beautiful bay of Guinjata and the ocean is a short walk away from the lodge. At our Mozambique lodge we offer a wide variety of both active outdoor sport activities as well as all of the lazy day things.
As with any sort of holiday trip, planning your accommodation is going to be high up on your list of priorities. For the most part Mozambique lodges are more or less the same in terms of location and, when looking for accommodation in a specific category, you can expect to find similar sorts of lodges. For the most part, these lodges are created in such a way that they maximise that feel good Mozambique holiday experience and, naturally, that means a lot of emphasis is on giving guests the best beach getaway.
