Relish the zenith of relaxation and island living on the remote outpost of Benguerra Island off the coast of Mozambique.
Guests are met and welcomed at any location of their choice in Johannesburg or Pretoria and are transferred to O R Tambo International for a flight to Vilankulos. Guests are met at Vilankulos Airport and transferred by helicopter to Azura, where the Luxury Mozambique Safari truly begins. The lodge is set on Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago in the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean. The island lies 14km off the coast of Mozambique and is approximately 11km long and 5.5 km wide. A more tropical and exclusive retreat can hardly be imagined. The late afternoon is spent at leisure.
The waters around the island are home to at least two thousand different species of fish and over a hundred coral species. From sand dunes to freshwater lakes and acacia woodlands, Benguerra Island is a diverse ecological gem. While some of nature's finest marine life swim veiled below the surface of opaque waters, upward the skies are alighted by beautiful bird life. Azura is settled in this peaceful paradise. The day is spent at leisure.
Scuba diving, snorkeling and various water sports are available for your enjoyment throughout your luxury safari in Mozambique. For the more adventurous spirits, one may choose to slip across translucent shallows on a sail boat or fly a haul on one of Azura's catamarans.
The day is spent at leisure, perhaps alongside a freshwater pool, set in a glade of coconut and ilala palms. Enjoy lazing around soaking up the rays of the African sun. Lunch is served at the pool, enhancing the sublime setting of this luxury barefoot paradise.
Breakfast is followed by a helicopter transfer to Vilankulos and from there a flight to Johannesburg, where guests are met and transferred to any location of their choice after a memorable luxury Mozambique safari.
