Why we Love Azulik Exclusive Luxury Lodge

Beautiful eco lodge proudly dedicated to fair trade with the local people and protecting all living things in the Vilanculos Wildlife Sanctuary.

The best of both worlds – an exquisite Mozambique beach holiday within a pristine, remote wildlife sanctuary for body, soul and emotional release.

Easily accessible from South Africa by air to Vilanculos - and all boat, plane and helicopter transfers arranged for guests.

Local communities play a vital role in the conservation of the Vilanculos Sanctuary, partnering with government and private lodges like Azulik to look after the incredible 30 000 ha of marine and land wilderness.

Book out the entire lodge for your friends and family then kick back and relax as a private chef conjures up fresh seafood, tropical fruit and fresh produce meals.

Getting to Azulik Lodge Vilanculos Sanctuary

  • Self-drive: For adventurous guests who would prefer to drive, Vilanculos is approximately 700km north of Maputo. It would be best to do the trip over two days with a stop at Inhambane, since the journey can be quite long.
  • Flying: Daily flights are available from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg to Vilanculos Airport (except on Sunday). Flights are also available from the Kruger National Park and charter, or private flights can easily be arranged.
  • Airport Transfers: Transfers from the airport to the Lodge must be booked at the time of making a reservation and are charged separately as the cost varies considerably depending on pax or mode of transport. It must be noted that, at times, there may be a delay in the transfer to Azulik Lodge should passengers be arriving at different times on different airlines. Transfers to the lodge can either be via boat (45 min), helicopter (10 min) or hovercraft (35 min). If transfer is via boat, you may be required to wade through knee-deep water, so bear this in mind when choosing your attire.

Once you arrive at the sanctuary, you will be met by Azulik game viewing vehicle, and driven the 20 min drive to the lodge. Here a warm welcome and an ice-cold cocktail await you.

VISAS for Business and Tourists can be issued on arrival. South African passport holders do not require a visa.
