Birding Safari & Nature Walk

beautiful rare birds

Birding Safari

Ibo 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 a Mozambique Birding Safari.

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.

Mozambique holidays

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

To everyone at Ibo Lodge, thank you so much for a truly magical experience. Everyone made us feel so welcome. Sunsets on the veranda each night were a treat. The sea food each night was the best. The island itself is truly unique and we are privileged to have been here. Ibo is not just a place you recommend someone to visit, it’s a gift you pass on to others who would truly appreciate it. Well done!
