Bazaruto Archipelago | Mozambique

Azura Benguerra

Imagine an unspoilt island within a National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, swaying palms, sunny days and starry nights… and you have Azura Benguerra.

Azura Benguerra was built entirely by hand by the local community and is operated in partnership with them, it has just 20 villas each with a Private Mozambican host service for the duration of the guests stay.

The hand built villas blend modern chic with all that is traditional in Mozambique. They offer our discerning guests every comfort, with handcrafted king size beds, feature bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, air-conditioning, daybeds, lounging decks and salas right on the beach. They were designed for the ultimate getaway in this magnificent beach paradise.

Experience magnificent reefs for diving and snorkelling, and turtles that nest on the island’s outer shores.

Time your visit with Mozambique's season

Mozambique's seasons follow and typically Southern African pattern with the dry season running throughout winter and the rains falling during the warmer summer months. That being said, choosing the best time to go is entirely dependant on what you are looking to experience.

As a general rule the months of April-October are dry, with wonderful warm weather, rarely dropping below 20 C and usually around the 30s. November-March the temperatures rise and seasonal showers and thunderstorms are the order of the day.

The months of June and October are for many the true peak months as the weather is dry and the days longer and warmer than in July, August and September. However, the temperatures even in the depths of 'winter' are still glorious. Between July and October you also have the chance of seeing the Humpback whales.

In the green summer months the rains typically only fall every few days after the build up of a storm which then breaks to clear the air. Over these months is a great time to visit if you enjoy that tropical climate or are keen on seeing the turtles nesting on the beaches. Further north it is worth being aware of potential cyclones in January and February.
