Benguerra Island Soccer Fever

From the Azura Benguerra Team - July 2018

Once again, the FIFA World Cup has stirred up millions of passionate soccer fans around the globe. But it could be argued that Africa is home to the most enthusiastic supporters of the beautiful game. No matter where you go on the continent, you’re bound to come across a band of children (or adults) chasing a well-worn football across a field with a crowd of supporters cheering them on.

Family Half Term at Selous

From the Azura Selous Team - March 2018

‘We really are the leopard capital of the Selous’, commented Joseph our Head Guide. And no wonder, as just that morning in our open Land Rover with a family visiting from the UK, we had watched one resting in perfect photographic range in a natural cove in the dry riverbank that is known as hyena stream. Eventually she slowly sauntered off, with cameras clicking and videos rolling.

10th Azura Day Celebrations

From the Azura Benguerra Team - February 2018

Azura Day is a time honoured tradition that takes place in early December each year with our owners, staff and local community. It celebrates the life of Azura, gives thanks for all we have achieved, and prays for good fortune in the future. It begins with the local church choir arriving en masse in a succession of boats, singing all the way across the sea from the mainland.
