Chill-Out on the Magical Island of Benguerra, Mozambique

9 days from £2,816 per person

This romantic and idyllic beach holiday works perfectly in combination with a safari or on its own for those wanting to get away for a short time and to escape to a little piece of paradise. Johannesburg is a 11-hour, jet-lag free flight from London. At Johannesburg, you will be met and taken to the check in for your scheduled flight to Vilanculos in Mozambique which is a short 1 hour 40-minute hop away. From here, a surprise awaits as you are whisked off by helicopter to the island of Benguerra, the second largest of the islands in the Bazaruto Archipelago. The helicopter flight is an adventure in itself as you enter a different world, a world where time stands still and where deserted beaches, turquoise waters and magnificent reefs provide some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving in the World.

Spend the next 7 nights at the secluded and eco-chic Azura Benguerra, the perfect coastal escape where you can spend your days with the Indian Ocean as your playground. There is plenty to do here if you can find time to move away from your spot on the beach! Sunset dhow cruises, snorkelling and scuba diving are all available here, as well as horse riding and game fishing. Alternatively, time can be spent simply soaking up the sublime surrounds. On your last day, you will be taken by helicopter back to Vilanculos in time for your flight to Johannesburg to connect with your flight home or to go safari in either Botswana or South Africa.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
