Seated on the secluded shores of a warm turquoise lagoon in Southern Mozambique, Sussurro is a thoughtfully designed hotel in Mozambique for you to align with nature.

Sussurro’s commitment is to create a more conscious African experience which is reflected in its design and amenity.

The Bungalows

Private bungalows provide over a thousand square feet of personal space surrounded by nature. Each suite includes indoor and outdoor bathing facilities and generous water front verandahs. 

Mozambican vernacular architecture weaves a natural canopy above billowing mosquito nets. Large apertures allow the colours of an ever changing landscape to permeate the space.

Rooms are dressed with furniture created and carved onsite and thoughtfully collected artisanal pieces from sub-saharan African.

The Experience

Intimate Bush Experience

Mindful wilderness itineraries that utilize Sussurro’s inherent knowledge of Mozambique and the African bush are personalized for each guest. Two to four day guided excursions into the Mozambican National Parks of Gorongosa and Zinave.

Rest under the clear glittering night sky, in canvas tents that redefine luxurious minimalism, wake to the timeless rituals of the bush.

Dhow Safari

Set sail on one of Sussurro’s traditional lateen rigged Mozambican dhows. Drift through waterways flanked by floating forests and small fishing villages. Venture out on the warm Indian ocean wind and experience an East African brunch on a deserted island in the Bazaruto Archipelago.

Yoga, Artisinal fishing, Weaving workshops, SU Paddle boarding, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving are other activities that you can indulge in.


The restaurant harvest table embraces Sussurro’s real-food philosophy. An open plan kitchen breaks the traditional divide between host and guest.

Mindful attention is placed in sourcing fresh produce, ensuring your stay maximizes the support of our community’s local fishermen, organic farmer’s markets and sustainable traders.

Drawing from traditional East African ways of living in our food ideology, Sussurro’s plant-rich menu includes indigenous superfoods such as baobab and moringa and our Organic food garden informs the menu seasonally.
