Azura Benguerra Benguerra Island

Accommodation
Azura Lodge is situated on Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto National Park. All villas are located just a short distance away from the beach. Each is equipped with private plunge pool, air conditioning, electric fan, minibar, and veranda with loungers and couch. A private sala (daybed) located on the beach invites guest to sit and relax. Choose between a Beach Villa (small but beautiful, shower only), Luxury Beach Villa (larger, shower only), Infinity Beach Villa (larger pool, bath and shower), Royal Beach Villa (10 metre fully tiled pool, extra lounge and 30m beach frontage) Villa Amizade (2 bedrooms, bar, 10 metre pool), and the large Presidential Villa for up to six guests. Each villa has its own local villa host. The main building comprises reception, dining area, bar, library with TV and Internet, curio shop, and the activity centre.

Location
The Bazaruto Archipelago is located off the calm east coast of Mozambique. The island is situated 5 minutes (by helicopter) from the town of Vilanculos, which is accessed in two hours by plane from Johannesburg. Fantastic sunsets, pristine nature and a dedicated Azura team await your arrival. Most of the employees come from the three villages on Benguerra Island, and live in very humble conditions. Guests may catch sight of fishermen in their colourful dhows or see women picking muscles. The three lodges located on the island are actively involved in helping the locals; a recently opened school is one example of their commitment.

Activities
Activities on the island include snorkelling, diving (PADI), fishing, dhow cruises (traditional sailing boats) and dune-climbing excursions with a picnic lunch on a beautiful sandbank (very romantic). Guests can also harmonise body and soul with a professional spa treatment.

Good to know
Guests are met in Vilanculos and transferred to the lodge via helicopter (5 mins). Boat transfers are only available if the helicopter is out of operation!

Children welcome.
Mobile network connection with international roaming available; Wi-Fi available in the main building.
A diving course can be booked at the PADI Dive Centre.
The water in front of the lodge is not deep and there are no waves. Guests can discover the fascinating expanse left behind when the tide goes out.
Benguerra Lodge and Marlin Lodge are located some distance away.
