The lodge is in the rustic-luxe style combining local artwork and décor with a mix of clasisc castaway feel thanks to the thatched roofs and wooden decks.
Benguerra Island is known for its beautiful unspoilt beaches giving it that idyllic feel, but there's far more to the locale than its picturesque shores. Further inland, the island comprises forest, savannah and freshwater lakes as well as a wetland ecosystem that sustains a diverse population of flora and fauna.
Accommodation & Facilities
Accommodation is split into three different types, with each one having its own individual style. A larger Casa Familia caters for families, being made up of three rooms. All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms and an outdoor shower area, as well as their own private decks and plunge pools.
Benguerra lodge has a well-stocked lounge, bar and dining room. All are located on large wooden decks with indoor and outdoor seating areas. Being a small and intimate owner-run lodge, the emphasis is on you, the guest, and as such the dining can be tailored to your own personal tastes. Meals will largely consist of freshly caught seafood mixed with traditional Mozambican cuisine. Breakfast and lunch will be a buffet affair with dinner being a set menu.
With so much to offer, Benguerra Island is ideal for guests with a variety of needs. You can choose to relax on the white-sand beaches while enjoying a cocktail, while the more adventurous will want to make use of the magnificent reefs that offer stunning snorkeling experiences. There is also the option to take a trip further inland to walk through the lush vegetation and keep an eye out for birds, reptiles and amphibians. Yacht day trips are available to book, or you can paddle yourself out into the azure waters on a kayak.
Children of any age are welcome at the lodge and extra beds can be provided on request.
