The lodge is fast becoming famous for the outstanding fishing that seems untouched due to its remote location.

Some mornings we were the only two people on mile after mile of sand. Indigo Bay Island Resort is really is one of the last pieces of paradise on Earth – unending stretches of silver beach with the palms almost reaching down into the clearest sea that I have ever seen anywhere in the world. Obviously this stunning hideaway is very popular with honeymooners – one couple never left their room but sounded very happy – and for the rest of us there was a wide range of activities. Of course the, the old favourite pastime of sitting in the ocean-view bar watching people fall off their windsurfers or half drown trying to get up on their water-skis, is as popular here as anywhere in the world.

Benguerra Lodge SunsetBenguerra Lodge constantly strives to improve their guests’ overall experience. With this in mind they have, since the end of January, slowly introduced an informal Mozambique style butler service. The butlers were sourced from existing staff who volunteered for the intensive Butler training program. The butlers have really embraced the program with great enthusiasm and take pride in caring for their assigned guests.

Guests staying in the Casitas are assigned a personal butler on check-in to look after them for the duration of their stay. In keeping with our style of “bare foot luxury” our butlers are informal and friendly, adding a very special, personal touch to every guest’s visit.
Mozambique Holiday

Mozambique is home to the Bazaruto Archipelago – a group of remote, untouched islands. This area is off the beaten track and if you are looking for stunning beaches, clear azure sea and relaxation then Mozambique could be the place for you.

Accommodation varies from Eco lodges, such as Guludo Lodge – this is tents on the beach, very rustic and fantastic for scuba diving! – to 5 star deluxe resorts, such as Indigo Bay – wonderful for honeymooners. Ibo Island is steeped in history, guests stay in an old Portuguese house which has been renovated to a very high standard.

Many people think that Mozambique is inaccessible & hard to reach, but LAM, Turbo Max and SA Airlink all fly directly to various cities in Mozambique.
