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.
