It is time to embark on a Mozambique safari by sea kayak – explore the fantastic Quirimbas Archipelago on board one of these stable canoes. Fly into Pemba for the launch of your excursion and Ibo Island Lodge representatives will arrange your three-hour road transfer to Mucojo, then your dhow transfer to Mogundula Island.
Meet your fellow sea kayak paddlers around the fire while dining on freshly grilled seafood. Spend two nights at Mogundula Island, one of the best islands in the Quirimbas Archipelago. This is a fantastic base from which to explore the region – an island known by the locals as “the island with the sacred lake”. Learn more about trips to Mogundula here.
Sea kayakers will be able to add splendid bird watching to their Mozambique safaris, as well as swimming off the sandbank beach into clear blue waters – and excellent snorkelling! The snug mobile camp is set up under shady trees and paddlers will find themselves totally alone on this magical island. Make sure you explore the island and its beautiful environment – your sea kayak has been made for cruising up river mouths and drifting along the sea shores of stunning islands as you enjoy a safari in Africa.
During your Mozambique safari by sea kayak, your crew will take you on a day trip to the Pangane Peninsula or to Macaloe Island from the camp. Pack your sea kayak and be sure to paddle more around this mind-blowing photographer’s paradise. Enjoy another dinner under the stars, toasting your decision to come on safari into Mozambique on a sea kayak!
On the third day, you will leave Mogundula for your exploration into the Quirimbas Archipelago! Sail into the clearest of blue waters with pristine corals below, which you will explore when you board your sea kayak again. The Ulumbwa river mouth beckons – find fascinating rural fishing villages dotted along the shore. Another chance to camp in the open – this time in the Mozambique bush south of Ulumbwa.
Arise early to kayak up the Ulumbwa estuary, viewing a variety of birds and mangroves that thrive in this area. Stop on the southern tip of Matemo Island and explore this part of the island then return later to the camp at Ulumbwa. Find time to kayak on the sea again while others relax on this unique Mozambique safari.
Spend your last night on Ibo Island, exploring the 200-year-old ghost town and 16th Century forts – meet the amazingly friendly local people, and observe their unique island culture and heritage, and a way of life that has not changed for hundreds of years.
