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

I have only just arrived back in the UK and thought I ought to add my message of thanks to those you have already received. A magnificent trip…well organised, professionally operated, fascinating, educational and – most importantly – very enjoyable. A huge thank you for all those who extended hospitality….not least Rob and Harris at Ibo Island Lodge. The food at Ibo Island Lodge was truly exceptional. I think makes it the best in the Quirimbas? Congratulations to Rob and the team. You really ought to boast of this – A&K intend to do so. Thanks again for all. I really enjoyed the trip
