It’s time to cover our second Mozambique region the Bazaruto Archipelago. What’s available there, how to get there and recommend some great accommodation. It’s based on our personal experiences and the feedback we get from our clients.
The Bazaruto Archipelago is a group of 6 islands off the coast of southern Mozambique. They lie within Bazaruto National Park and are known for their white-sand beaches, and incredible hotels. Coral reefs protect rare marine animals, like dolphins and dugongs, and snorkelling at Two Mile Reef is world class.
Renowned as the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean” exclusive accommodation is on offer – peace, solitude and sunsets. Easy access from Johannesburg, and also regular flights from Kruger make this an ideal add-on to a safari, or a short break away from it all! That’s why it’s so popular, and there are only four resorts operating there.
The best three by far are:
Azura BenguerraImagine an unspoilt island within a Marine National Park, exclusive accommodation, deserted beaches and you have Azura Mozambique.
The lodge is one of our favourites. It is chic and stylish yet still authentic. Great service, a private butler, excellent food and well run activities. The beach is just stunning and just a few steps from the villa. Each villa also has its own pool. I highly recommend you consider this for that special holiday you haven’t had in a while!
Accommodation Rates from R4700 per person sharing per night or 5 Nights Packages from R27325 per person sharing, all inclusive
