Kayaking the Quirimbas Archipelago

A sea kayak experience in Mozambique is best enjoyed in the islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago and the best way to assess these safaris is to first scan all TripAdvisor guest reviews and the candid photos people post. This feedback from clients is most informative for those still planning their kayak safaris to the islands and you can deal with the holiday experts who will pave the way for you, finding you cost cutting special packages.

The kayak Quirimbas safaris are deemed the number One boat tours and water sports at Ibo Island Lodge by TripAdvisor and falls under the categories of Kayaking and Canoeing, Boat Tours and Water Sports, Tours and Activities, and Outdoor Activities. Check out our specials here.

Ibo Island Lodge offers a unique paddle around deserted islands and a stop for tea on a desert island. Oar your way into pristine mangrove swamps and river mouths where unusual creatures live, unaffected by people. Imagine sitting back at night when your crew lights the fire, grills the lobster and pours the wonderful wine? Sleep under the stars in an eco fly tent and awake to the sounds of the waves lapping nearby.

Packages vary and can be tailor made according to every group’s need – all-inclusive family reunions, company team building or honeymoon excursions – simply ask us to work around a price for you. We loved the freedom to choose – you end up paddling short and far distances and spend time paddling off the support vessel, if weather conditions require this. Why not arrange a longer expedition style paddling trip if this pushes all your buttons?

Kayakers also have the option of joining Ibo’s set schedule departures – a standard itinerary includes four nights’ island hopping and three nights at the lodge. These trips are ideal for families or groups of friends and make the most spectacular honeymoon! Safaris can cater for up to 20 paddlers at one time!

Says Greg R from the UK: “Ibo uses stable glass fiber boats which look and sit much better than plastic boats – we paddled right into the mangrove forests and around spectacular islands, our hearts in our mouths at the amazing beauty all around us!”

According to Merle S from East London, their trip highlight was the food – with special meals being supplied for her vegetarian needs and her friend’s Kosher requirements. “The cook even baked us fresh bread every morning on the fire! Our guides were fit and fun and we so enjoyed meeting the local people and exploring the wilderness that is the Quirimbas Archipelago…”
