Welcome to Benguerra Island

An exquisite piece of Indian Ocean paradise, Benguerra Island is a luxury beach holiday destination where time stands still. Situated off the coast of Mozambique within the protected marine reserve of the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, this island hideaway is set on a protected lagoon unaffected by the tides.

Warm waters, pristine coral reefs teeming with marine life, idyllic beaches, inland freshwater lakes and towering sand dunes have shaped this adventure haven.

The lodge lies sheltered within the canopy of an indigenous forest and swaying palm trees. The welcoming guest areas offer views of the lush tropical garden and the ocean beyond. Under the shade of straw covered wooden awnings, inviting comfortable loungers are set up around the lodge’s rim flow swimming pool. A colourfully decorated traditional wooden dhow has been converted into a picturesque beach bar, while the cool surrounds of the massage sala hold the promise of deep relaxation.

The lodge has a range of luxurious thatched accommodation. For families or small groups, the exclusive-use Casa Familia is an ideal option with three ensuite bedrooms, a large deck area and private pool overlooking the beach. Set amidst lush island forest, there are two cosy cabanas, ideal for couples or honeymooners, and the slightly larger 10 casinhas. Cabanas and casinhas all offer private timber decks, rim-flow pools, sun loungers and private salas with irresistible hanging daybeds.

Why we love it

ROMANTIC CASTAWAY PICNIC

Disappear for an afternoon. We’ll ferry you by catamaran to your chosen point to the north or south of the island and leave you there for a blissful time of total seclusion. A table for two under an awning on your very own stretch of beach, complete with a mouth-watering Castaway picnic awaits.

SUNSET DHOW CRUISE

Take a sunset cruise around the bay in a dhow, a traditional wooden sailing vessel with a triangular sail, used by the island’s locals – a unique window on the everyday world of the island’s fishermen. Toast the end of another unforgettable day as you watch the setting sun colour the sea gold.

SCUBA DIVE EXCURSIONS

Calling divers of all abilities. Situated within a protected marine conservation area and surrounded by premier diving sites such as the main dive site at Two Mile Reef, this is a scuba diver’s paradise. A fully equipped dive centre offers a full range of exciting diving adventures to suit every guest.

SWIMMING WITH HORSES

Riders of every level will love this horseback adventure. Put on your swimwear and be prepared to have loads of fun as you ride bareback into the warm ocean. Perfect as a standalone activity, or as an extension to other horseback riding excursions, it is dependent on season, weather and tide.

Going Beyond the Expected

Go ‘Beyond the Expected’ with a safari theatre experience. Led by our experienced guides, enjoy a morning bush cappuccino rendezvous and evening sundowner stop on your game drives, as well as a complimentary pair of Swarovski Optik binoculars, for your use during your stay with us.
