Africa is a world-class tourist destination, with specific cultures and traditions in every one of its countries. A good example is Mozambique, country that administers the Bazaruto Archipelago. Within this, tourists may visit the wonderful resort Azura, located on the Benquerra Island.

The easiest way to get here is by plane, a two-hour flight from Johannesburg Airport to Vilanculos International Airport. Then, a six-seat helicopter takes you to the resort. There’s also the possibility to reach Azura by boat.

The Azura retreat boasts with 15 luxury villas, alongside white beaches and the turquoise waters of the ocean at your side. The whole spot belongs to a natural park, and offers a great deal of privacy and relaxation. Some of the activities you may do here are swimming in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, fine dining and spend some time in a romantic setting with your beloved one aside.

Built to satisfy even the most squeamish tourists’ desires, the villas include infinity pools, a large number of luxury amenities and, as a final and grand touch, your own host that cooks and helps you plan your time. Furthermore, he can help you plan snorkeling, scuba diving, dune-riding with a Land Rover, visit the local Benguerra school or a romantic dinner on the white beach.

There’s also a beneficence factor over all these – the hotel has established a fund to help building the local school. Plus, the retreat functions as eco-friendly, helping to preserve the area.
