Accommodation & Hotels in Mozambique

AfricaMozambiqueAccommodation & Hotels in Mozambique

Read next

Accommodation options vary from low-cost guesthouses and backpacker hostels to some of the most costly resort hotels in the area.


Hotels in Mozambique are usually ungraded and, in particular, have not been renovated since the country’s independence. In certain instances, you may spend up to $50 USD per night for a hotel room that should cost between $5 and $10 depending on the amenities. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Mozambique is home to some of the world’s most spectacular (and costly) hotels and resorts.

Backpacker lodges

Backpacker lodges may be found in Maputo, Tofo Beach, Vilanculos, Chimoio, and Pemba, all of which cater to the budget visitor. There are some backpacker alternatives elsewhere in the nation, but for a budget visitor, temporary labor guesthouses or inexpensive hotels are typically the only possibilities.

Self catering

There are many self-catering alternatives in most major tourist destinations.

If you bring your own gas-powered cooking equipment, bear in mind that the usual backpacker lindal valve gas canisters are not available in the nation.

Camping and caravaning

Dedicated camp sites with security are available in virtually all coastal cities, and you may often camp in rural regions with the permission of the local head (If you do decide to use this option a small offering such as food, liquor or cigarettes can be very useful).

If traveling with a caravan, bear in mind that many roads in Mozambique degenerate into sandy pathways that need 4WD; it is best to stick to popular places along the EN1.

Purchasing land or property

If someone tries to “sell” you land in Mozambique, run as fast as you can. It is a fraud. Private land ownership is impossible in Mozambique; all property is held by the government and will only be made available for foreign usage under extremely restrictive conditions, such as a 99-year lease.
