Ibo Island Lodge
Renovated colonial mansions with high ceilings and four poster beds give this lodge an aura of history, perfectly reflecting the island's claim to fame as one of the most ancient settlements in Mozambique.
This itinerary is simply an indication of what we can do - all our tours are personally put together by our travel consultants according to your preferences, dates and budget.
Northern Mozambique and the surrounding Quirimbas Archipelago offer the ultimate in what you would imagine a tropical island holiday to be about: turquoise water, bright coloured coral reefs, white sand beaches, palm trees, plentiful seafood, hammocks and beach bungalows.
Ibo Island is a unique gem in this region, home to one of the oldest towns in Africa, with its stone walled buildings and old forts it’s the perfect island to bicycle through as the friendly locals gather to greet you.
This combined with a few days of solitude on another of the private islands will give you the ultimate in island bliss.
You will be met upon arrival at Johannesburg airport, and assisted with check-in for your flight to Pemba. Upon arrival at Pemba Airport in Mozambique, you will take a light aircraft directly to Ibo Island to start enjoying the fantastic cuisine, history, culture and outdoor activities.
One of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in the Quirimbas Archipelago is closely accessed from Ibo Island, and is easily one of Ibo’s best kept secrets! There is a transfer to this beach included each day in the Ibo Island Lodge rate. The time of the transfer is dependent on tides, weather and other activities planned each day. Dolphins and turtles are regularly spotted from the boat along the way.
After breakfast this morning you will be transferred via helicopter to Azura Quilalea Private Island. Quilalea is a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style Lodge, that belies the comforts and experiences on offer in the 9 seafront villas.
Your Mozazmbique butler/ host will make sure all your needs are met during your stay. You have free use of all snorkelling equipment, the kayaks, and make sure you explore the many Baobab walking trails on the island.
