Benguerra Island is the second biggest island in the chain and is approximately 55 square kilometres in extent. This ensures that guests enjoy ample privacy within an idyllic unspoiled island paradise surrounded by magnificent beaches and, further out, pristine coral reefs.
Benguerra is a unique, African island paradise - washed by the turquoise waters of the warm Mozambique channel. This is barefoot luxury at its very best.
The Benguerra Lodge lies on this island. The lodge area was rebuilt in 2005 and Benguerra now offers an incomparable experience. It is small, intimate and has a rich East African/Arabic feel. The lodge staff offers genuine hospitality, personalized service and an intimate knowledge of the natural environment. They are passionate about conservation and dedicated to the involvement of the local community in sharing and conserving the spirit of Africa.
Benguerra Lodge provides a true African beach holiday in a remote wilderness area of Africa, reflecting individuality, personal style, standards and service of a bygone era - without sacrificing modern comforts and conveniences.
The 11 chalets, individually furnished in an East-African style, have easy access to a superb beach only twenty metres away. There is a stylish Lounge, Dining Room and Library - all with large, sunny decks dedicated to comfort. There are also a new Reception area and Gift Shop.
The lodge has a gorgeous, big beach and is sheltered from bad weather. There is also a deep channel running out to sea, so there is always ocean access.
The menu is comprised mainly of freshly caught seafood. The flavours are an exotic, heady mix of African, Arabic and Portuguese. Guests can enjoy sundowners in the lounge prior to dining and there they can plan with lodge staff their activities for the following day.
Benguerra is a snorkeller's and diver's paradise. The Lodge has a fully equipped diving facility to take you to unspoilt reefs. For the more adventurous, there's the thrill of a night dive or diving to one of the many wrecks.
