How To Get There
GPS Co-ordinates: 21°51'12.83"S, 35°26' 18.79"E

There are daily flights on Federal Air and LAM from Johannesburg International airport (OR Tambo) to the newly modernised Vilanculos International Airport (VNX). The flying time from Johannesburg is approximately 2 hours. These flights are designed to connect well with the major international flights to and from Europe. There are also regular flights from Maputo (MPM) on LAM.

On Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays the Federal Air flight collects passengers from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (MQP), with an onward flying time of just 1 hour. This facilitates an effortless beach and bush experience.

Visas are available on arrival (currently US$85 but note this is subject to frequent change). Where possible please obtain your visa in advance to speed your arrival through the airport. US Dollars, South African Rands and Mozambican Meticas are accepted in Mozambique. Please have cash for your visa available on arrival.

Transferring To Benguerra Island

Azura operates a state of the art helicopter for the transfers from Vilanculos to Benguerra Island. The flying time is approx 10 minutes, and will connect with your arriving/departing flight. This should be booked at the same time as your accommodation. The flight is operated by Alpine Aviation.

Benguerra Island does have a short grass strip which can accommodate smaller private aircraft. You should check suitability and conditions in advance as the runway lies in a wetland area and conditions are not always suitable for take off and landing.

Imagine an unspoilt island within a Marine National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, sunny days and star studded nights…and you have Azura Mozambique.

Just 16 villas are nestled along one of the last undiscovered stretches of beach in the world, with all the creature comforts you could wish for, sparkling private pools, Mozambican Butler-hosts to look after your every need, fish and seafood fresh from the ocean, a fantastic range of activities and experiences, an African spa to relax in, all at a community based project where the local islanders benefit as much as you.

Our hand built villas blend modern chic with all that is traditional in Mozambique. The creature comforts you would expect from a luxury boutique resort are there, set off by locally sourced wooden beams and traditional artwork beneath a thatched jekka roof.

Each is just footsteps from the beach, yet designed with seclusion in mind. Nestled amidst indigenous gardens, we have created your own sanctuary. A haven of rest and relaxation, where you can feel at one with the environment. A fusion of indoor and outdoor space where time becomes your own.

Wander down to the pristine white beach and welcoming azure sea beyond. Lounge around on plump cushions on your daybed, or tan in private and cool off in your sparkling plunge pool. Dine on your deck, or sip the cocktail of the day in your beachside Sala as the sun goes down. Lie in your bath and gaze at the view, or shower beneath the stars. Do whatever you want to do.

Our villas are a welcoming place to stay. You may not want to leave them at all.
