Benguerra Lodge


Benguerra Lodge North Point 2Along the historical Moçambique channel lies tropical Ilha de Benguerra. It is here that Benguerra Lodge, a unique and incomparable African island paradise, is washed by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

The Lodge is small and intimate and offers genuine hospitality, personalized service and an intimate knowledge of the natural environment. It has a rich East African/Arabic feel – evinced in both the décor, and the unique and delectable food.

Benguerra is passionate about conservation and dedicated to the involvement of the local community in conserving this idyllic corner of the world.

The resort features an expansive lounge, bar and diving room, all with large wooden decks and indoor and outdoor seating areas. There is a swimming pool and small spa. Indulge yourself in countless hours of relaxation under coconut palms, delight in the diversity of birdlife, visit the historic freshwater lakes (and their crocodiles), sail in a traditional Dhow and search the seas for the legendary dugongs


The rooms all merge naturally into the surrounding forest and are only moments from the gorgeous silver-white beach of Benguerra Bay. There are three different kinds of accommodation, each with their unique characteristics and attractions.

Casitas are a home away from home, where the eco conscious traveler can relax and enjoy spacious and luxurious comforts. Each Casita has a queen bed with mosquito net, lounge area, 100 sqm private timber deck with plunge pool and an outdoor dining gazebo for starlit dinners.

Cabanas are built right on the edge of the beach. Romantic and elegant, the suites offer guests the chance to experience the ultimate island getaway. Cabanas have a queen bed with mosquito net, overhead fan, indoor and outdoor showers and a private deck with Jacuzzi/plunge pool and sun loungers.

The 2-bedroom Villa Chibuene is the epitome of exclusivity. The luxury furnishings and private facilities make it an ideal place for those wanting unsurpassed comfort and privacy, honeymooners and families


One of the most striking aspects of diving the reefs off Benguerra Island is the sheer unspoiled beauty and the variety and abundance of marine life. While gearing up on the boat, before you even begin your dive, you may see batfish surfacing, a turtle rising to take a breath before diving again, a curious whale shark turning towards the boat (inspiring you to momentarily abandon your dive gear to snorkel with the biggest fish in the ocean).

Once under water exotic reef fish abound: schooling bannerfish, moorish idols, butterfly fish, blue striped snappers, oriental and barred sweetlips, boxfish, goldies, trigger fish and numerous others provide movement among the diverse beautifully colored corals and sponges. Your dive buddy could be obscured for a few moments by hundreds of fusiliers shoaling through the coral crevices. Or it might take a while for you to recognize a giant moray, due to sheer size
