Waiting for your visit
SDZ Chá Sarl Tea Plantation is a great place to unwind with a delicious cup of tea while taking in the picturesque scenery of a magical green garden that will surround you.
Gurué is one of the principle towns located in the middle of the Zambezia Province of Mozambique. Central to accessing regions north of the Zambezi River, including into Zimbabwe, Malawi and Tanzania.
This Bungalow was the home of tea tycoon Manuel Saraiva Junqueiro. It is a great place to bring the whole family for a week, with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and dining room.
The kitchen is equipped with an oven, cooker, and fridge. There is also an expansive dining table that can seat up to 10 people, great for weekend parties.
We have 5 self-contained, simply furnished, rustic, traditionally round cottages, located right by a stream, where guests are encouraged to go for a quick dip in the cool waters. A perfect getaway for singles or couples staying over the weekend.
Guests have the option of utilising the outdoor dining and barbeque area adjoining these huts, or the kitchen and dining area adjoining the bungalow, which is a short walk from the cottages.
