Day 1Excursion starts:
Fly to Mozambique. On arrival in Vilanculos, you will be required to comply with customs and immigration formalities before being met and assisted to the heli-pad for your helicopter transfer to Azura Benguerra Island.
The creature comforts of a luxury five star boutique hotel are set off by beautifully carved beams, polished wooden floors and traditional artwork beneath a local thatch roof. It represents unabashed luxury in an amazing setting.
All villas have their own pool, beach frontage, outdoor sala, sundeck, daybeds, double outdoor showers, and beach shower. Interiors feature extra length king size beds (twin available), full bathroom, dressing room, hairdryers, mini bar, international plug points, air conditioning and private butler service. Just 16 villas are nestled along one of the last undiscovered stretches of beach in the world, with all the creature comforts you could wish for, sparkling private pools, Mozambican Butler-hosts to look after your every need, fish and seafood fresh from the ocean, a fantastic range of activities and experiences, an African spa to relax in, all at a community based project where the local islanders benefit as much as you. Azura is paradise found. A kaleidoscope of colour greets you above and below the ocean. Magnificent reefs for diving and snorkelling, home to the turtles that nest on the island’s outer shores. Migrating whales, dolphins, and the elusive and protected dugong ply these waters, along with marlin, sailfish and tuna to tempt the sports fishermen. On land, towering sand dunes give way to indigenous bush abundant with local flora and fauna, an interesting variety of birdlife, as well as the odd crocodile or two at the lakes. The island’s local people make for fascinating cultural encounters, and the starry night sky is quite magnificent to behold.
