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 scheduled departure tours take guests to uninhabited islands beyond Ibo, where only the sea birds and coconut palms welcome the dhows.
These traditional sailing boats have been motorised and modernised to resemble luxury yachts which can cruise the Quirimbas effortlessly, docking at remote islands while guests jump off to 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.
At night, sleep in mobile eco fly camps on uninhabited tropical islands. The crew conjures up fresh seafood and traditional cuisine over an open fire under African stars, leaving you free to revel in the silence of your unique island hopping safari.
Ibo Island Lodge has been actively involved in northern Mozambique and Ibo Island for the last 19 years. With this knowledge, we are able to offer this unique dhow safari experience – an un-equalled island and cultural exploration in one of the last undeveloped places in Africa. This is adventure safari travel at its best!
Guests at Ibo Island Lodge have the option of tailor-making their personal dhow safari: it may be a fun venture for friends travelling together, a great family reunion in paradise, or a romantic honeymoon where tranquillity and being solitary make the trip so special. Or they can join scheduled departures according to the lodge island hopping itineraries.
The standard itinerary includes 4 nights island hopping by dhow or kayak and 3 nights at the lodge. Shorter and expedition itineraries are available on request.
