DAY 1 – 5: BENGUERRA ISLAND
On arrival at Vilanculos International Airport, you will be assisted onto a helicopter flight to &Beyond Benguerra Island.
The second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, Benguerra offers exceptional marine life and an abundance of island adventures. Characterised by its towering sand dunes, inland lakes and idyllic beaches, Benguerra was declared a National Park in 1971. It is home to over 140 bird species and the pristine waters surrounding the island, as well as the entire archipelago, are home to the rare dugong and one of the most pristine coral reefs in the world. Guests visiting the island can awaken to the sounds of fishermen trading their daily catch from their traditional sailing dhows and embark on a series of adventures, including dhow cruises, diving, snorkelling and exhilarating catch-and-release deep-sea fishing.
Warm and intimate, with a distinct East African feel, &Beyond Benguerra Island is a tropical paradise tucked into a lush indigenous forest and looking out onto a picturesque crescent of sandy beach. Set among swaying palm trees, ten casitas and two cabanas peep out directly onto ocean vistas, while a spacious Family Suite ensures privacy and exclusivity. Whether staying in a cabana, a casita or the family suite, the lodge’s colourful beach bar, sheltered by swaying palm trees, is the perfect setting to admire the African sunset while sipping an exotic cocktail.

Your stay includes the services of a Mozambican butler, a non-alcoholic welcome cocktail on arrival, all meals, all drinks (including soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers and bottled water), snacks (including private beach dinners and private meals on decks), teas, coffees and standard included activities.
