Ibo Island Lodge Safari Awards. Imagine a remote Mozambican island lost in time and almost forgotten to the outside world for nearly a century. Picture grand, majestic architecture, some lovingly restored to their former glory while others have fallen into crumbling, marvelous ruins. Be whisked to an idyllic white sandbank beach and dive some of Africa’s richest coral reefs. Snorkel, sea kayak, swim, fish, massage and relax. Take a Quirimbas mobile island hopping dhow safari. Snack on cashew nuts and tropical fruit and feast on seafood of every description. 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. Mozambique accommodation at Ibo Island Lodge is award nominated and has been described as one of the most magical, atmospheric and unique lodges in Africa. The island is also one of the oldest and most romantic settlements in Africa and is nominated for World Heritage Status. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, Ibo Island Lodge was built with the community, and today either directly or indirectly benefits a large portion of Ibo’s population. Here your visit really does make a difference. The mystery, the magic, the culture and beauty of Ibo Island beckons. WELCOME TO THE IBO EXPERIENCE AND THE ULTIMATE MOZAMBIQUE HOLIDAY…

Dear Rob and team.
Our sojourn with you over Christmas was a holiday I’ll remember forever.  We may not have been the easiest bunch to accommodate, taking into account our range of ages – from a 10 year old to an 80-plus year old couple.  However, you really went beyond the call of duty to make our stay as comfortable as you could for all of us!

Your staff are wonderful and I had the best bird watching trip ever, with Harris.  We identified the call of the bird and then stalked it.  What fun!  Our snorkelling with Harris and Dollar was pure magic.  Your larger Dhow is a real majestic boat to travel on.  The helmsman is the most unflappable individual who calmly directed the frantic activity to unfurl the sails!  We loved watching him and voted him a master yachtsman. The kayaking trip generated great competition and turned out to be a race back home! Lots of talk about who cheated or didn’t row fast enough!!

Dollar and Harris and the staff made our holiday so memorable with their knowledge, expertise and willingness to adjust the various activities to suit everyone’s specific needs.  Nothing was too much trouble. Nacir was so willing to help with our requests for fixing a shoe, finding Ibo coffee to take home and allowing us to learn more about his island that he made some good tips on the side! Your chefs and kitchen staff truly wowed us with what they produced and our Christmas meal was truly delicious.  You were ever present and available to make the adjustments we requested with willingness and the ability to be flexible.  We probably weren’t always aware of the McGuiver- like manoeuvres you may have had to implement in order to satisfy our many requests!  Say thank you to Glynis also for her good company. Thank you so much. Wonderful!
