Ibo Island Lodge Quirimbas Mozambique

Rewind and unwind

A dot on a map becomes the focus of your dreams when you land on the grassy runway of Ibo Island. Embrace the tranquillity of such an untouched region where you can be completely alone in the elements. Only you, some rare birds, ethereal mangroves and ancient ruins that would tell fascinating fables if they could talk.

Welcome to an award-winning lodge on a tiny island in the middle of the Mozambique nowhere. Recline high on our mesmerizing roof top terrace overlooking the ocean and track the slow and steady dhows that drift across the blue horizon. Refresh your senses with a massage and indulge yourself with a frosty cocktail at one of the pools. This is the Ibo Island Lodge life, designed to uplift mind and body – your escape from your reality.


Forget all your troubles

Allow yourself to be whisked away to an idyllic white sandbank beach. Forget all your troubles in the shade while you sip champagne then don your mask to snorkel nearby. Dive some of Africa’s richest coral reefs, swim with dolphins, sea kayak into pristine mangroves and fish off the shores. Take a Quirimbas mobile island-hopping dhow safari to undiscovered islands and sit beside a beach fire at night.

Ibo Island is the kind of destination that reminds you to live every moment in endless sunshiny days. Your Never-Never land becomes your retreat within the cool, luxurious walls of ancient mansion suites. Amble through lush gardens of blooming frangipani, bougainvillea and tall palm trees – a true tropical paradise where nothing else matters. Don’t make any plans, just go with the Ibo flow.


A day at IBO – Day Dreaming


Where to go

Fly in to Pemba in northern Mozambique to find your private charter to Ibo Island. Your Ibo Island Lodge representative will help you aboard and you will fly low over beautiful islands and clear turquoise waters for 25 minutes – maybe spot turtles and whales in season.

Ibo Island has a lost world appeal, echoing with tales of pirates and prisoners, turtle shells and silver. The first thing that strikes you when you arrive is the genuine friendliness of the people of Ibo. Pride in their island seems to burst from within them and they are not shy to share all their unique culture with visitors. Ibo is a living, breathing, vibrant island. And at Ibo Island Lodge you can be a part of the rhythm of the island.

Hi Fiona and Kevin

We returned on Saturday from our wonderful week at the Lodge. We will give some formal feedback and we have posted something on Tripadvisor but I just wanted to thank you personally for ensuring that our wedding anniversary celebration was such a memorable occasion. The special touches of some champagne and cake in addition to the other great meals were much appreciated and your well-trained staff all went out of their way to take good care of us all of the time. It was exactly the experience we were hoping to have.

We also want to commend you on what you have done for the island in general. I trust that it is appreciated and that you are given appropriate recognition for the difference you have made to people’s lives there; but even if it is not always fully acknowledged, I hope that it gives you a lot of satisfaction after the immense effort you must have put in to turn the Lodge into what it is today.


Congratulations and best wishes
