The incredible views and setting at the unique Rio Azul lodge in Vilankulo is loved by our clients who keep coming back for more. And this also applies to this luxury Mozambique accommodation rates and packages which are very pleasing to the eye and even more pleasing to your pocket.

Rio Azul Lodge is located on the banks of the Govuro River in Mozambique. It overlooks the estuary and is about 2km from the Govuro River mouth.  Fishing is one of the most popular activities at Rio Azul and this means that a high percentage of the clients are keen anglers with their families.

Indeed, Rio Azul is the kind of place we promote for clients dreaming of that perfect family holiday on an idyllic beach where there is plenty to do and plenty of time for relaxing activities too. Picture a sanctuary of peace and safety, of endless bliss in the timeous sunsets and the morning wake-up sunrises. Picture a family playing on the white sandy beaches while traditional dhows sail past. A blend of the old and the new, the serene and the beautiful.

We recommend Rio Azul Lodge because it blends into the Bazaruto Archipelago environment from its place on the estuary where wildlife and natural ecosystems still exist. Clients are attracted by the warm five-star service, the fantastic ocean and beach activities and the wonderful food and luxury villas. Contact us today for more information.
