The Bazaruto archipelago comprises Bazaruto, Benguerra and Magaruque Islands, as well as the smaller Island Santa Carolina, (previously known as Paradise Island). The archipelago, declared a National Park in 2000, sustains a diverse range of fauna and flora including forest, savannah and wetland ecosystems.
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... You can choose to do as much, or as little, as you like while at Benguerra Lodge.
Meals at Benguerra are comprised largely of freshly caught seafood –
with delicacies such as prawns, crab and crayfish. Traditional Mozambican
cuisine, Portuguese flavours and a variety of delicious dishes make up
the daily menus. Breakfast and lunch are buffet affairs, while dinner
is a set menu. Benguerra guests with special dietary requirements can
be individually catered for. Benguerra island and the lodge provide a
variety of settings for lunches and dinners which contribute to the magic
and romance of the island experience.
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 coloured 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 recognise a giant moray, due to sheer size. Ribbontail rays try to hide on the sandy bottom; Devil rays glide effortlessly along, swooping down occasionally to rub their undersides on the sand. Schools of kingfish are attracted to the reef's food supply and circle divers bubbles before moving off on their hunt. Turtles can be seen sleeping under a ledge or feeding on a sponge, ignoring divers in favour of indulging in a tasty meal. White-tip, black-tip, gray reef or giant sleeping sharks may be seen in a cave or patrolling the perimeter of the reef. Hearing a whip like crack indicates that a grouper has seen the divers and has made a hasty retreat through the wall of slender sweepers surrounding its hideout. At the safety stop, you may have a batfish keeping you company.
On the surface, a pod of common or humpback dolphins may be seen hunting mullet. The sight of a humpback whale breaching in deeper waters is a sight never forgotten. After the dive a trip to Pansy Island to collect a few rarely seen pansy shells and a discussion of the day’s dive rounds off an unforgettable experience.
