It’s all systems GO at Ibo Island Lodge. We are very happy to report that the clean-up and rebuild phase post-cyclone Kenneth is going extremely well. Ibo Island holds so many incredible memories for our wonderful family of past guests all around the world and we have been overwhelmed with calls and emails and pledges of support. So thank you all so much all of you we are truly touched and know more than ever that Ibo Island Lodge is special as well as resilient! Kevin and the team have been working like trojans to get it all back to how it looked before and happy to report that Ibo Island Lodge will be fully operational and welcoming guests again by the 15th June 2019.
So many people and our loyal trusted tour operators have asked how they can help? Aside from donating to the various relief efforts for the communities being coordinated by the UN and an army of amazing NGOs (see details below for how to donate) by far the best way to get the Quirimbas back on its feet again is to keep bookings coming in and keep tourism operating throughout the region.
We have just operated our first mobile island hopping safari post-cyclone – a great success and want to thank you all for your continued support and care. We are standing by to assist with your Mozambique itineraries, Ibo and the Quirimbas needs your support now more than ever.
If you would like to help the relief efforts, still the most pressing issue is getting supplies and experts and coordinators to and from the region. Donations can be made to the following account for International residents:
