Adventurous guests who would prefer to drive – Vilanculos is approximately 700km North of Maputo. It would be best to do the trip over two days with a stop at Ihnambane, since the journey can be quite long
Daily flights are available from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg to Vilanculos Airport (except on Sunday and Thursday).
Flights are also available from the Kruger National Park on Thursday and Sunday and charter or private flights can easily be arranged. Transfers from the airport to the Lodge must be booked at the time of making a reservation and are charged separately as the cost varies considerably depending on pax or mode of transport. It must be noted that, at times, there may be a delay in the transfer to Azulik Lodge should passengers be arriving at different times on different airlines.
Transfers to the lodge can either be via boat (45 min) or helicopter (10 min). If transfer is via boat, you may be required to wade through knee-deep water, so bear this in mind when choosing your attire. Once you arrive at the Sanctuary, you will be met by Azulik game viewing vehicle, and driven the 20 min drive to the lodge. Here a warm welcome and an ice cold cocktail await you.
