Beyond Benguerra Island Lodge
  • Magical stretch of unspoilt beach which you can walk up and down on, or if you would prefer go horseback riding!

  • Why not arrive by Helicopter, a memorable experience in itself with the crystal clear waters below – be sure to have your camera at the ready!

  • Enjoy a private dhoni experience and sail into the sunset with a glass of champagne before dinner back on the island.

  • Fabulous diving and snorkelling to be enjoyed along the coral reefs.


Benguerra is the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, which broke away from the mainland thousands of years ago. The island is approximately 11km long by 5.5 km wide, and lies 14km offshore. It is famous for its unspoiled white beaches, remarkable dive sites and excellent fishing (subject to a strict “catch & release” policy).

Some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in the world is available off Benguerra’s shores with the surrounding coral reefs rich in sea life. The archipelago is one of the last remaining habitats of the endangered Dugong. A pale, voluptuous sea mammal fabled to have made bygone mariners believe in mermaids.

Inland, Benguerra Island comprises forest, savannah, freshwater lakes and wetland eco-systems that sustain a diverse population of fauna and flora. Fresh water crocodiles can be found in the three lakes, bearing testimony to the island’s mainland past. The island, which is home to approximately 140 bird species, was declared a National Park in 1971.

Benguerra Lodge and the Bazaruto National Park strive, in conjunction with the community and other related parties, to maintain the diverse and pristine environment for the enjoyment of future generations. Since the inception of the Lodge in 1988, its owners, management and staff have been intricately involved in the ecological preservation and conservation of the island’s heritage. Part of the &Beyond group, you can expect beautiful rustic-luxe style, superb service and fabulous food. The local staff are immensely friendly and always willing to help. There are ten casinhas, two cabanas and a three bedroom Casa de Familia with it's own private pool. All of the rooms are the epitome of Robinson Crusoe chic, with soft fronds of thatch overlapping from the roof, beautiful four poster beds and decor with a mix of ocean blues and African artwork.

Top tip:

If you are keen horserider, I would highly recommend going on a ride with Mozambique Horse Safaris based at Benguerra Lodge. A wonderful way to explore the remote island and gallop along the pristine beaches. Do note, it is not for beginners.
