Azura Benguerra
Azura Benguerra Mozambique is just as you’d imagine a deserted island lodge in your sweetest dreams. Powdery white beaches that go on for miles, indigo blue waters crisscrossed with dhow boats, sparkling private pools, relaxing spa treatments, fresh seafood daily and a dedicated, gracious butler. Paradise found.

Azura Benguerra

Azura Benguerra is an eco-friendly award winning boutique lodge on Benguerra Island in the prepossessing and largely-tourist free Bazaruto Archipelago of Mozambique, Africa’s new rising star.

Getting there is easy and unsurprisingly, scenic. SA Airlink offers five weekly flights from Johannesburg to Vilanculos, and two weekly flights from Kruger International Airport. From Vilanculos airport, guests access Azura Benguerra via a direct helicopter flight to the island. 

Twenty beautifully turned out beachfront luxury villas hand built by the local community line the Indian Ocean shores. Their staff and service levels are unsurpassed and each villa has it's own dedicated butler to pander to your every need, and their cuisine is superb! 

Azura Benguerra offers all the creature comforts you could wish for … private pools, dedicated and gracious Mozambican butlers pandering to your every need, fresh seafood straight from the ocean served to you daily and a local and natural African spa. Being a Marine National Park, it’s a playground for water sports. Go snorkelling or scuba diving at Two Mile Reef, saltwater fly fishing or world class deep sea diving. Alternatively you can horse ride, climb sand dunes or just relax and soak up the beauty.

Azura delivers a simple truth, that 'slow is good'!
