Do you long for the peace and tranquility of the wild coast of Mozambique? Driftwood offers you the ultimate getaway from the hustle and bustle of crowds, towns and the usual tourist venues!

We offer you the ideal location for a self-catering "in the wild" holiday on the unspoilt coastline and dune forest of the Mozambique coast.

Self-contained, serviced beach home a pebble's throw away from the lake.

Sleep and wake to the sounds of the surf - take long walks on the beach - Kayak on the sea or lagoon - indulge in bird or dolphin watching - and languish under the majestic night skies of the Southern Cross.

We are situated on the first dune with the beach in front and a lagoon behind.

Driftwood (Unit 116) is a 2 bedroom, 6 sleeper house.

1. The main bedroom has a queen-size bed.
2. The second bedroom has a double bed.
3. The loft room has two single beds.
4. There are 2 bathrooms, each with shower, toilet and basin.
5. There is a spacious, open-plan kitchen/living area.

Please note:
- The last 10km are through thick sand and a 4 x 4 is a necessity.
