Discover the unspoilt islands of the Bazaruto archipelago
Sprinkled off the coast of Mozambique, the Bazaruto archipelago boasts sandy beaches, swaying palms and an abundance of marine life. The sun-soaked islands are only accessible by boat or light aircraft from the mainland town of Vilanculos, meaning much of their beauty remains unspoilt.
Amongst these jewels of the Indian Ocean, few shines brighter than Benguerra. It’s a little slice of paradise within the Bazaruto Marine Reserve, lapped by sparkling blue water that teems with tropical fish. In the ocean surrounding the island, you can find humpback whale, dolphin, turtle, the rare dugong and dazzling coral rich with life. The island itself offers barefoot luxury with its secluded beachside villas and year-round warm climate. A perfect spot to get away from it all.
Both the largest and northernmost island in the archipelago, Bazaruto is also perfect for a beach break. Enjoy the luxury of its resort hotel, never far from the sun, sea and sand.
Just two hours by air from Johannesburg, and half that from Kruger National Park, the Bazaruto archipelago is an ideal destination to unwind after a thrilling safari, or to curl up in front of the sunset during a tropical honeymoon.
