Benguerra Island



Built on the untouched land of the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, off the coast of Mozambique, Benguerra Island awaits each visitor to the island with open arms.

Lodge and Accommodation

Glimpse unimpeded views of the shimmering azure waters of the ocean from just about everywhere in this romantic paradise. Each of the suites and the resort’s communal areas are placed between the island’s palm trees and casuarina pine forest. The wooden decks and palm-thatching meet pristine white walls and exquisite furnishings that are as comfortable as they are pleasing to look at. Watch orange sunsets turn to the deep blue of evening as the light of the sun is replaced by hurricane lamps, spread throughout the camp, guiding you along the timbered paths to your well-lit suite.

The island has a choice of spacious accommodations that match all needs. The 10 Casinhas and 2 Cabanas blend African island style with Portuguese tradition. The wide wooden doors and panels open up onto the decks, with private pools and shady thatch to keep guests cool in the heat of the day. The Casa de Familia Villa holds 3 bedrooms, making it ideal for families looking for a tropical hideaway.

Activities and Wildlife

At Benguerra you have the run of the island to yourself. Stroll to the shore, where you’ll watch the rippling waters as you enjoy a picnic. Grab scuba gear and explore the mysterious waters of the archipelago, where you’re bound to come across turtles, whales, dolphins, dugongs and bountiful tropical fish species. Kayak the seas or take a dhow journey along the clear waters to see just how far the horizon can stretch.

Fly-fishing and deep-sea fishing draw you out into the waters of the Mozambique Channel. Stick with the catch-and-release policy of the island and test your skills against some of the biggest game fish around.

Snorkelling, exploring the island on foot and horseback riding offer even more ways to spend your stay at Benguerra. The horseback trips are unique in that the horses strut into the waves, taking you along with them as they frolic and cool themselves in the shallow waters of the lagoon or the ocean.
