Quirimba Holidays

Things to do in Mozambique

Many Mozambique holidays are centred on the coastline, not surprising that the country’s top beach resorts and lodges are found there. Although the mainland offers variety, in terms of things to do in Mozambique, many holidaymakers opt for the remote islands for their tranquility and beauty. Unlike Zanzibar and Mauritius, the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos offer a different kind of vibe far from the crowds. Experience the best of Mozambique at Ibo Island Lodge, a restful place where you can escape the humdrum of city life.

Ibo-honeymoonsLocated on Ibo Island, this exquisite lodge will take you back to a time immemorial, when the island was a thriving trading post for slaves and ivory. Housed in three historic buildings that are over a hundred years old, the 14 tastefully furnished rooms at Ibo Island Lodge make for excellent love nests and the ideal home away from home for families and solo guests. Each room features its own unique design with elegant pillars, coral and lime walls that are a metre thick, high ceilings as well as solid teak beams.

This Mozambique accommodation is set in beautiful gardens and offers two lovely swimming pools that provide respite from the tropical heat. The lodge’s public areas are designed for relaxation, with comfortable sitting areas and a rooftop terrace restaurant where mouthwatering dishes are served while you observe spectacular sunsets. At Ibo Island Lodge, guests are introduced to a relaxed and laidback ambience, a slow, yet infectious tempo of island living. And for the ultimate indulgence, let the supple hands of an expert masseuse work on your body using traditional remedies borrowed from the local people of Ibo.

Of the many things to do in Mozambique, the daily transfers to Ibo’s secret sandbank beach is definitely something worth experiencing. You can also enjoy guided historical tours around the island, which include visits to the local silversmiths who make trinkets and jewelry using traditional methods passed down from generation to generation. The lodge is also home to Dive Quirimbas, a PADI dive centre that offers a range of dive courses. Dive the many dive sites available to Ibo Lodge and enjoy sensational snorkeling plus the exciting water sports on offer.
