About Ibo Island Lodge
Ibo Island Lodge is the perfect place to explore the Quirimbas Archipelago National Park in Northern Mozambique. Ibo Island’s magic is overwhelming. Steeped in history, rich in culture and nominated as a potential World Heritage Site, the island dates back to the early 1600’s, making it one of the most ancient settlements in Mozambique. Since its role as one of the country’s central trading centers, Ibo has remained all but forgotten to the outside world for almost a century. Today you can wander around the mysterious town amongst forts and ancient romantic buildings with many fascinating stories just waiting to be retold.
Ibo Island boasts much more than historical significance. This island is one of the most pristine destinations in Africa. The warm turquoise waters surrounding Ibo are inhabited by turtles and tropical fish; viewings of dolphins and whales are frequent whilst the bird life is abundant and varied. Here you will encounter idyllic beaches and explore rich coral reefs. Guests can also take to the water to discover the Quirimbas National Park in sailing and motorized dhows or quietly paddle through the mangroves in kayaks.
The lodge has spectacular views over the waterfront and accommodates guests in beautifully decorated rooms. Three historic colonial mansions with high ceilings have been stylishly renovated to accommodate 14 en-suite bedrooms with various verandas, tropical gardens and a spectacular roof top restaurant that provides the ideal venue to watch the sun go down.
On Ibo Island become immersed in the unchanged, ancient culture of Ibo and the chance to interact with wonderfully gentle islanders, or simply relax at one of the pools, refresh the senses with a massage and soak up the exotic atmosphere.
