We booked to go on holiday for December 2020 as you all know Covid hit us on March 2020. That time we had a 3 month old baby and he could not get his passport done. We had to cancel our trip. It was hassle...free, Bronwyn just said we can go December 2021. Well Covid hid us real bad and now we had to cancel our trip because we do not have a big enough car anymore to take us to Mozambique from Cape Town. To my suprise Bronwyn said they will refund us our money, it is NOT their policy as they have a no refund policy, but I think she heard the desperation in my voice (lol) When last did you do business with people that refunded you all your money back the very next day without any questions? I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart and also, I would go to no other place if we are in the position of going on holiday again. I hope your business do well after Covid because you deserve it. Thank you again for understanding.More

We call it the fishbowl place! The Thirsty Parrot with its great staff and hosts, interesting cocktails and the best sunset view near Inhambane remains a firm family favourite.

Lovely getaway into the heart of Mozam! Alot of time spent at the thirsty parrot bar & resturant. Spent many days in the pool drinking cocktails & enjoying their pizzas. Friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere.

We arrived at Sunset Lodge, after dark, on Saturday 21 July 2018. Although we were tired from the long drive from S.A., our spirits were instantly lifted as we were greeted by friendly faces, great service, delicious food and the most amazing atmosphere at The...Thirsty Parrot. Our 9-day stay was filled with lovely warm days and we were spoilt beyond our wildest dreams by Paul and Bronwen. I celebrated my birthday at Sunset Lodge and everyone made it incredibly special for me. Those memories will be etched in our hearts forever. We cannot express our sincere gratitude for your hospitality, generosity, warmth and kindness during our entire stay. The house we stayed in was spacious, clean and comfortable with a lovely patio and braai area with a beautiful view of the ocean and mangroves. The house was serviced daily and our laundry beautifully washed, folded and packed away on request. Safety was never an issue either. We forgot to latch the door one day and the house literally stood wide open for an entire day until late at night when we returned. Everything was still there just as we had left it. Sunset Lodge and everyone associated with it are truly special people. Megs, Paulie, Benton, Antonio and sweet Dulce, thank you from the bottom of our hearts…. Muito obrigado!More

Sunset is one of our must stop at places whenever we are in Barra and we have never been disappointed with anything - sunset, cocktails, food or service. Visits here are always the perfect way to see out the end of the day, thanks Sunset...team.More

The view is unreal and if nothing else you have to go have a drink just to soak that up ! Food and drinks are well priced. Service is better than anywhere else we went in Barra and Mozam. The atmosphere is social and family...and very relaxed and friendly. Must must do in Barra.More

Friendly staff, great food and cocktails. Hamburgers and pizza were fantastic, as well as their local sauces. Just a perfect day in Africa.
