Ibo Island

Experience an authentic island holiday on Mozambique’s Ibo Island in the luxurious Ibo Island Lodge. Find it in the remote, undeveloped Quirimbas Archipelago where once Arabs and Portuguese sailed the seas to trade and discover true beauty. Spend your island holiday in 300-year old mansions, lovingly restored to host intrepid travellers who want to learn the history and culture of Ibo. Romantic island hopping dhow safaris, a secret sandbank beach and unforgettable sunsets.

Ibo Island lies in the Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique. Nominated for World Heritage status Ibo has been described as one of the most unique and atmospheric islands in the world. Located on the prime waterfront site where romantic dhows sail out to sea on each high tide, Ibo Island lodge encompasses magnificent mansions each over one hundred years old. Coral and lime walls over a meter thick, high lofty ceilings and original beams. Ibo Island is a potential World Heritage Site, and therefore rooms have been designed to incorporate the architecture and style of the original ruins. The lodge accommodates guests in beautifully elegant, yet simple rooms, with indigenous solid teak and mahogany furniture, handcrafted by the people of Ibo. All nine bedrooms are individual and feature a king size 4poster, or twin hand crafted bed with crisp cotton linen and Indian silk throws. Wide verandas are a traditional feature of all Ibo mansions, but we widened ours considerably to house comfortable plantation style chairs with soft cushions. For all its tranquility and ambience Ibo Island Lodge also offers a diverse range of activities and experiences to keep the most diverse interests occupied.

Imagine a remote Mozambican island lost in time and almost forgotten to the outside world for nearly a century. Picture grand, majestic architecture, some lovingly restored to their former glory while others have fallen into crumbling, marvellous ruins.
