Base yourself at Ibo Island Lodge, a pristine location for watersports and the best place in the Quirimbas Archipelago for cultural and historical experiences. This family friendly holiday resort is stationed on Ibo Island, one of 32 remote islands off the far northern coast of Mozambique.
The lodge is housed in three ancient mansions that are over a century and a half old. There are 14 elegant rooms, furnished with handcrafted furniture and equipped with air conditioning as well as ceiling fans. There is an aura of old world charm that radiates in every room and the high ceilings and thick coral walls adds a touch of romance and grandeur.
While Ibo Island Lodge is a wonderful place to relax and soak up the soporific ambience of island living, with tasty servings of culinary delights at every meal time, it is also a fantastic base from which to explore the Quirimbas and its extensive list of thrilling activities.
Mozambique benefits from a pleasant tropical climate, allowing for countless days of fun in the surf. Kite surfing is possible at any time owing to the trade winds that blow all year round. Windsurfing is another awesome sport to get your heart racing and the Quirimbas Archipelago offers some great opportunities.
You can slow things down by opting to kayak the crystal clear waters or taking a boat trip for some ocean safaris. There is an abundance of fish and other aquatic species in these waters plus some of the world’s untouched corals. Diving and snorkeling here is without a doubt an overwhelming experience.
Ibo Island Lodge guests can also enjoy deep sea fishing. Although some species of fish such as Marlin, Dorado and Sailfish are prolific at certain times of the year, others, for instance, Wahoo, are present all year round.
When you decide to take a break from the hedonic pleasures of the sea, there are daily guided historical tours available at the lodge. Ibo Island Lodge is fully committed to the upliftment of the local community and plays a significant role in community projects. Your stay at this lodge will allow you to contribute to this initiative – sustainable tourism at its best!
