Inhambane Coast

Sussurro

Overview

Warm sand, blue water, considerate experiences

Sat on the secluded shores of a warm turquoise lagoon of the Nhamabue Peninsula in Southern Mozambique, Sussurro is a mindful, immersive spot with community and sustainability at its core.

There are beautifully designed thatch and stone bungalows built using only locally sourced materials with waterfront verandas leading through to the bedroom and on to private walled gardens with a bath and shower. Rooms are dressed with furniture created and carved onsite and thoughtfully collected artisanal pieces from sub-Saharan Africa.

In the shared area, find a swimming pool, bar, yoga deck and a relaxed dining space that celebrates fresh local, organic, and sustainable produce.

Community & Culture

Sussurro looks to engage with the local community in a reciprocal manner that is non-intrusive while spreading the benefits. Community built and serviced, the lodge is 100% African sourced and made, from the furniture and roof thatch to sourcing food from sustainable artisanal fishers and local farms.

Conservation

The lodge is keenly invested in mangrove reforestation. Mangroves are a huge asset to local areas for flood and storm-surge protection, as well as being a hugely important ecosystem for biodiversity and an important carbon sink.

Footprint

The entire lodge was built with sustainability in mind and is powered by renewable energy. Products are organic wherever possible and there are zero single-use plastics. Sussurro plans to enable each guest to physically offset the emissions of their trip through the reforestation of the Nhamabwe salt pan, restoring indigenous mangroves as a carbon sink from their nursery by 2022.
