Birding Safari & Nature Walk

Mozambique Holiday PackagesIbo Island is the head quarters of the Quirimbas National Park, surrounded by the Indian Ocean, and is uniquely located in front of one of Africa’s largest and independent mangrove forests. Ibo is a floristic kingdom and a great island for viewing birds of Mozambique.

Whether a dedicated ornithologist or an amateur bird-watcher, you will marvel at the wealth of opportunities to see some of the most beautiful, and often rare, birds in Mozambique. There are a number of wooded areas on Ibo and viewing is very good with the incoming and outgoing tides. The lush, low-lying sea mangrove forests are a special adventure for ardent bird-watchers and are impressive to be in at sunset when hundreds of birds fly in to roost.

Birders from around the world come to experience Ibo Island birdlife. Ibo’s bushy interior offers comfortable cover for a varied bird kingdom, who arrived in numbers for sweet nectar sipping. Ibo nests 250 different bird species, 10 of these being threatened.

Goliath Herons, Fish Eagles, Egrets, Flamingo’s and Pelicans are all regular visitors and the tropical gardens at the lodge support a large range of Sunbirds, Wood peckers and the beautiful lilac breasted Roller. Our guides are overwhelming in their knowledge of every little Ibo flitter and flutter.

 

 

 

Holidays Mozambique

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
