Tailored Just For You

Our personal travel specialists go above and beyond to give you the best luxury experience, and every holiday we create is tailored just for you by our experts.

‘Pristine Beaches and Marine Life Discovery’

Set in a protected marine conservation area, Benguerra Island is a luxury lodge situated on an island of the same name. The second largest island of the Bazaruto Archipelago, Benguerra was declared a National Park in 1971 and provides some of the best marine life discovery in Mozambique. Pristine coral reefs lie just offshore and reveal a variety of colourful tropical fish, whilst the waters surrounding the archipelago are home to Africa’s last remaining population of the rare dugong. If not snorkelling or scuba diving the waters you can head further out for excellent game fishing. Beautiful surrounding beaches beckon you to relax and can also be experienced on horseback. Other activities include tailored expeditions and scenic helicopter tours. The lodge hosts welcoming guest areas amidst lush tropical gardens and ocean views, whilst the accommodations are set under local thatch with private timber decks and plunge pools. You can depart on secluded castaway picnics and savour succulent seafood dinners at the lodge, followed by sundowner cocktails at the beachfront dhow bar.
