It could be your lucky day as hooking a Sailfish is not that uncommon, but be sure to take pictures/videos if you do catch one because some would think it’s a fisherman’s tale.

Luxury self-catering accommodation in Mozambique could be just what you are looking for

When planning your dream vacation, these are just a few reasons why it is a great option:

  1. All the space you could dream of

When staying in any other type of accommodation, you run the risk of having to share your space with other guests. That is not the case when you stay at Guinjane.

You can look forward to having your own unit, and you can choose from 2, 3 and 5 bedroom chalets. Each of the units has its own self-catering facilities, so you will not have to share a communal kitchen or book a table in an on or off site restaurant.

All this space means plenty of privacy and the opportunity to sprawl out and make your unit more suitable to your unique needs.

  1. You can make you own meals

Whether you wish to cook up a storm in the unit’s kitchen or if you are keen to get the braai going, you are in full control of every meal. This is the ideal perk for anyone who has particular dietary requirements or who simply likes to decide when and where they eat.

Since self-catering units will come with the necessary pots and pans, you don’t have to worry about carrying around heavy extra luggage. One thing you will need to bring along is food. While nearby shops could fill your pantry, if you have specific meal expectations, packing your own food is a must.

  1. Become a local

Staying in a self-catering unit is one way to enjoy a more authentic holiday, the type that will feel as though you are living like a local. Coming and going as you please, not having to check into and out of the unit each day and having no set mealtimes means you can take full opportunity of the freedom to explore. When staying at Guinjane, it also means you can spend as much time as you like on the beach and in the warm ocean.

  1. It’s real value for money

Luxury self-catering accommodation, in particular, is worth every cent. The units at Guinjane work out a whole lot cheaper, especially if you are travelling in a large group, while the cheaper price does not mean a compromise on quality.

When staying in any type of self-catering accommodation, since you won’t be paying out extra on pricey restaurant meals, you can make your budget go a lot further and perhaps factor in more adventures during your time in Mozambique.

  1. The entire experience is just more personal

Going on holiday is as much about making memories as it is about having a break. And it really helps to stay in a place that will give you a more personal vibe.

While the accommodation at Guinjane is fully furnished with everything you need, the size of the units will allow you to bring a few things from home. When travelling with children, you can bring along books and other entertainment, without the worry that it is going to take up loads of extra space.

Guinjane Lodge is the perfect place for a family adventure and with our affordable, luxury self-catering accommodation in Mozambique, you can look forward to an epic break away.
