Rio Azul (meaning 'Blue River') offers the perfect opportunity for couples or families looking for a beach holiday. The lodge is located on the banks of the Govuro River, approximately 80 km north of Vilanculos, at the northern end of the Bazaruto Archipelago.
The main guest area consists of a lounge, dining room, a bar area with a big wooden deck in front and a plunge pool. The view from the bar is possibly one of the most spectacular in Africa, overlooking the Guvoru River during sunsets. Another part of the experience here is the excellent fine dining experience, with freshly caught cuisine to tantalise your senses.
Activities range from walking on pristine beaches to romantic sunset dinners out on the deck. You can also go kayaking, windsurfing and snorkelling.
The blue estuary is home to a myriad of birdlife, offering excellent bird watching opportunities. Each group has access to their own boat to explore the estuary, allowing for endless hours exploring this pristine environment.
Fishermen will delight in the deep sea fishing trips that can be arranged - catering for beginners through to the more experienced - on both the esturary and the sea.
The accommodation consists of 6 thatched luxury beach front chalets and 2 luxury villas. Each villa has its own swimming pool and is situated along pristine beach shores.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
All meals; unlimited use of esturary boat (excluding petrol cost); use of kayaks; tea/coffee; and snorkelling (on request and local trips only - NOT sea snorkelling) are included.
Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request.
All of the holidays we prepare are tailor-made, but this might give you an idea of how Rio Azul can be included in you own dream holiday.
