I will take back some great memories of my 3 nights stay at Ibo Lodge. The lodge was great, the staff and the service they provided were first class. The food was fantastic. I loved every meal. The trip to the sand bank was great. I’ve had peace + tranquillity the whole of my stay. Thanks to you all.

Dear Rob, Glynn and The Team @ Ibo!

What a wonderful stay and dhow safari we have had!! An amazing island and a gorgeous lodge. The experience has truly been fantastic! From arriving by dhow to finishing with our private beach diner, it has all been magical!! Hope to get back one day!

What a wonderful experience! I have enjoyed every minute and learnt so much about Ibo Island culture. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and hope to return one day. I wish you every success.

Thank you for an amazing experience! I will take memories and photos and new friends away with me. Harris is an amazing guide and really comfortable to be around and his knowledge is outstanding. The Dhow safari was a great way to travel and I felt truly relaxed. Rob and Glynn and Ibo you have been really hospitable and I feel like you are instant friends. Thank you again.

The opportunity to share your special part of the world has been fantastic. Thank you for all your hospitality, personal touches & obvious passion for the island of Ibo. We leave with happy memories, many photos and the pleasure of sharing those with you & the islanders. Thank you for the fabulous birthday celebrations – so so special.

I just got off the phone with Gideon, a colleague of mine.  He called to tell me that he and his fiancé, Mariaan, had tied the knot in July.  When I asked him where the ceremony took place he said that they had got married on Ibo Island.  What a surprise!   He said that the Lodge organized everything perfectly and that the chapel was lit up with hundreds of candles – they were over the moon with it all.  Just wanted to let you know that you’ve won yet another very happy client…Lesley –Ann Steer

As a start to our honeymoon, we could not Have asked for a more beautiful place. The staff (especially Kissinger) were fabulous and special notes to the chef!! The sand bank island breakfast will always be a special memory.

Sitting overlooking this view one cannot imagine or prepare oneself for such a beautiful Island . I have trodden here humbly, the dawn and dusk both mystical the pace of life here reinstalls belief in human nature. The sand bank is a world apart, magnifying the beauty of the ocean in one small and shifting fragile place. Such beauty is what happens here in Ibo. Never lose what is here now ! Never let the magic at Ibo escape from the bottle I know when I boarded the air link flight at Johannesburg . The magic was beginning but arriving at Ibo and all that I have seen smelt , touched heard here has have been beyond a dream . I have visited many beautiful places and only a few have stolen my heart. Ibo Island lodge and its people, history and culture did. It is truly spectacular.
