Lying within a Marine National Park, Azura Benguerra Island offers an idyllic getaway in the first eco-friendly resort in Mozambique. With Mozambican butler-hosts to look after your every need, a week here can feel like a month away from every-day life. A great range of activities on offer, to keep you as busy as you’d like, or you could just enjoy the entire stay at your private pool. The aims of the hosts is that you never eat in the same place twice, so from breakfast at the water’s edge to a picnic on a private island, to romantic dinners either at your villa or dining beneath the stars – every meal is an experience.

The island is also a great place for families to spend a vacation. Villa Amizade and the Presidential Villa are the accommodation of choice for families and the children will be spoilt for choice with all the activities offered.

BENGUERRA ISLAND | Day 2

  • Azura offers many activities, for all ages, so the next few days can be filled with experiences.
The Red Dune & Crocodile Lakes Drive departs from the lodge in a game viewing type vehicle, passing through the many villages on the island where you have a change to encounter some of the local communities. You could also try some of the wild fruits from the indigenous trees en-route. As the island is wild, keep an eye out for the local wildlife, namely some reptiles, birds and insects which can only be found on this island. The Nile crocodile can also be found on the banks of the three lakes on the island.Best viewed from afar. On the "Wild Side" of the island, called this because of the strong winds and waves coming in from the Mozambique Channel and Indian Ocean, you can walk along the beach before hiking up the Red Dune, which offers amazing views of Benhuerra island.
