Tailor make your own Quirimbas Safari

Ibo Island Lodge is the only Mozambique operator to offer fully guided, tailor-made, mobile island hopping dhow and kayak safaris in the greater Quirimbas Archipelago region. Under the expert leadership of a pro guide and a local crew, these unique experiences take guests to uninhabited islands beyond Ibo, where white sandy beaches, fringed with coconut palms are all yours to explore.

Guests at Ibo Island Lodge have the option of tailor-making their personal dhow safari: This gives you the ultimate flexibility to create your own adventure for your specific needs.

Choose between a dhow, kayak or dive safari – or a combination.

It may be a fun venture for friends travelling together, a great family reunion in paradise, or a romantic honeymoon where tranquillity and having the islands to yourselves totally takes the experience to a whole new level!

Our 12 meter sturdy and traditional sailing dhows have been motorised and cruise the Quirimbas effortlessly, docking at remote islands and sand banks, while guests jump off to swim, snorkel or kayak. Discover awesome wide coastal river mouths teeming with red listed bird species and pristine mangrove forests throughout the Archipelago region. This is the ultimate Mozambique Safari Package for adventurous travellers or honeymoon couples.

Expect the team to whip up seafood extravaganzas around the camp fire!  You don’t sleep on board – instead, mobile camps are set up on various tropical islands and special spots, and weather conditions permitting, you should be sailing in calm, clear and turquoise water with local white traditional dhow sails to break up the endless view on the horizon.

This is adventure safari travel at its best!

Shorter and expedition style length itineraries are also available on request. Options that combine our mobile island hopping dhow safaris with other luxury Quirimbas Island properties and also luxury yacht charters are also possible.

Truly a bit of paradise! ‘Beguiling’ is a word I don’t recall using before, but for me describes Ibo perfectly. A very enjoyable stay, excellent food (best prawns I ever had) and thanks to our hosts and their courteous staff. Don’t lose the magic with the inevitable expansion.”
