Featured Lodge: Azura Benguerra, Mozambique


Mozambique is an incredible destination,  with miles of pristine  beaches and coastal islands that offer access to ocean explorations as well as land safaris. Azura Benguerra is a boutique hotel that represents many of its wonders – the people, history, culture, food, hospitality all wrapped up in the stunning villas dotted along the edge of the Indian Ocean.

Whale sharks are one of many species that can be found here.


With just 18 villas, Azura Benguerra offers an intimate setting for relaxation at the end of a land safari.

Azura is built on the principle of investing in the local community. This resonates throughout the lodge, giving guests a wonderful sense of place — you are in Mozambique! A highlight for the local children is to show their singing and dancing skills every Saturday at the lodge. Guests can head to the local soccer field on Sundays to join in on a game.
