Benguerra Island lies within the Bazaruto Archipelago of Mozambique. Spanning 55 square kilometres, Benguerra is made up of freshwater lakes, wetlands, savannah and pristine beaches. Tranquil, and for the most part uninhabited, the island is home to a diverse range of fauna and flora and more than 140 species of birds.
Marine life is plentiful and divers and snorkelers can see leatherback turtles, tropical fish, moray eels, manta rays, whale sharks, reef sharks and the elusive dugong. Dolphin, Humpback whales, sailfish and marlin also roam these azure waters – head out on the water on a Dhow and you are certain to spot some.
Accommodation on Benguerra Island is pure luxury. Tranquil pause areas lead to inviting plunge pools, which lead to luxurious lounges, which lead to sumptuous dining areas, which lead back to private decks and secluded suites. Known for its warm hospitality, eager-to-please service, and spectacular scenery, Benguerra Island is truly a tropical wonderland.
