Itinerary in brief

The dream described

Day 1 2,3,4 andBeyond Benguerra Island Resort & Spa

Imagine the Caliph's luxurious living quarters, lifted from A Thousand and One Nights, and planted on alabaster sands besides a turquoise sea. Hard to imagine, you think? Not so, when the Benguerra Lodge looks so much the part, and so much plays the part of a mythical middle-eastern potentate's luxury dwelling.

The Benguerra Lodge is on the sub-tropical Benguerra Island in Mozambique's Bazaruto Archipelago, and is the ideal luxury Bazaruto vacation destination, great for diving and fishing or simply lazing in the Sun.  As one of Mozambique's top lodges, Benguerra can easily be combined with an African safari holiday.

Blending into a natural acacia forest bordering Benguerra Bay and encircled by silver beaches, coral reefs and sparkling turquoise seas, this up-market lodge offers exclusivity in the most tranquil setting imaginable.

At Benguerra Lodge, where lodge policies are intricately interrelated with the marine eco-system and with genuine concern for the local population, relaxation within an African island reserve is the name of the game. While you may simply choose to recline under the shade of a beach umbrella, there are many wonderful activities to enjoy.

There are three  different kinds of accommodation at Benguerra ― each with its unique characteristics and attractions:  The Cabanas, Casinha and the Casa Familia.

Meals at Benguerra consist largely of freshly-caught seafood – more often than not with such delicacies as prawns, crab and crayfish. Traditional Mozambican cuisine, Portuguese flavoursand a variety of delicious dishes make up the daily menus. Breakfast and lunch are buffet affairs, while dinner is a set menu.  And, of course, guests with special dietary requirements can be individually catered for.

Day 5,6,7,8 Luxury Yacht Charter – Bazaruto Archipelago

You’re not surprised (because things like this do happen in dreams, after all) when one morning you meet some people on the beach who invite you to join them in an adventure. You roll up your trousers and wade through knee-deep surf to an inflatable dinghy which ferries you out into deeper waters.

And there it is, bobbing gently on the peaceful deep beyond the breakers, the majestic 75ft Ocean Catamaran, sails furled, awaiting its complement of 6 lucky guests, one of them you, embarking on your journey to bliss.

Settled in the yacht’s bright and airy saloon, a stylish  and summery perch above the cockpit, watching the experienced, efficient crew winding up the anchor and setting sail for four days of island-hopping around the archipelago, equipped for deep sea fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, visiting passing islands in the motorised tender, exploring ruins from Mozambique’s colonial past, buying fresh fruit at village markets, navigating mangrove swamps in kayaks, or just lying tanning in the sun, or dozing off under the stars to the rhythmic slap of wavelets along the hull — experiencing the very embodiment of the success you have sought all your life, but experiencing it, too, as the culmination of the dreamy days and nights that have gone before, days and nights that have brought ultimate relaxation to your body, peace and fulfilment to your mind, and that have recharged your physical and psychic  batteries with a charge that will endure until the next time freedom beckons….

….and you obey.

The journey’s end Day 9

The yacht drops you off on the beach at Vilanculos, where a road transfer to Vilanculos Airport meets you and transports you to the airport. You reluctantly board your Airlink flight back to Johannesburg.

For the moment, your experience of freedom has come to an end, and you will soon be back in your ordinary lives.  But in the past days you will have laid in a store of mind-fuelling memories and joyful experiences that will keep you content… until the next time you are lured by freedom’s irresistible siren song.
