About Rio Azul

Quietly waiting on the shores of Mozambique, is Rio Azul, an untouched paradise meaning "Blue River." The Lodge offers the perfect haven to rest, and restore one’s soul while soaking in the breathtakingly beautiful views of the endlessly blue estuary.

Rio Azul offers luxury lodge accommodation including six twin chalets and two luxury villas which sleep six adults and six children. Each villa has its own swimming pool and is situated along pristine beach shores.

The lodge faces west and enjoys spectacular sunsets in a quiet and peaceful setting in your own personal paradise. The setting is ideal for honeymoons, romantic holidays, family holidays, fishing holidays and of course beach holidays. Excellent fishing and bird watching opportunities wait, as well as kayaking, snorkelling and boating to name a few of the lodge beach holiday activities. Each group has access to their own boat to explore the estuary, allowing for endless hours exploring this pristine environment. Part of the experience is enjoying fine dining with freshly caught fish to tantalise your senses.

Rio Azul Lodge is situated on the Northern end of the Bazaruto Archipelago at the mouth of the pristine Govuro River which enters the sea at Bartholomew Dias. Guests enjoy a scenic one and a half hours scenic road transfer from Vilancoulos before reaching this private beach haven.
