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

From the moment we arrived we were blown away by this place – the beautiful decor, the impeccable friendly service – we really couldn’t have asked for more. A magical place – we’ll be sending people here whenever we get the chance (and hope we don’t bore everyone waxing lyrical beforehand! Whilst lazing by the pool, or sipping an expertly mixed cocktail or discussing the day’s activities with the ever efficient Dollar it has been difficult to put my finger on why this is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. To cut a long story short, it immediately entered my top 3 on arrival, only to move rapidly up the podium as we enjoyed the comfort and subtlety of the decor and the phenomenally warm and delightful hospitality of all the team. Special mention to all! A big thanks and the best of luck in developing the lodge further.
