Pestana Bazaruto Lodge
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.
Pestana Bazaruto Lodge is situated in the largest island of the Bazaruto Archipelago, approximately 800 km to the north of Maputo, the capital of Mozambique.
The island of Bazaruto is undoubtedly a beautiful and unexplored destination, characterized by its wildlife, turquoise waters and idyllic beaches. Bazaruto Island is 35 Km in length and 7 km across at the widest point, and is a little piece of paradise!
Part of the island is composed of enormous sand dunes, while the remainder of the island is thicket, grassland, scrub and wetland. Thick forests of casuarinas, coconut palms and cashew nut trees grow on its shores. Marine species include dolphins, dugongs, humpback whales, marine turtles and the freshwater lakes in the area are home to crocodiles. The impressive beauty of the coral reefs complements this subtropical ecosystem, enriched by the abundance and rare beauty of the tropical fish, clear water and excellent surf, plus rock and fly-fishing. The archipelago is deservedly known as the ''Pearl of the Indian Ocean''.
Renovated July 2007, the beautiful four-star Pestana Bazaruto Lodge is the ideal getaway - A true African Island dream destination.
