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. Ibo Island Lodge was built by the community, pioneering tourism development on Ibo. Today either directly or indirectly, the Ibo Island lodge benefits a large part of Ibo’s population. Here your visit really does make a difference. 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 Ibo Island 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 Activities: Beach bliss, Birding, Community Interaction, Cultural Tours, Cycling, Darts, Dolphins, Exploring, Food, Dhow Safaris, Guided Historical Tours, Inspiration, Kayaking, Learning, Mangrove Forest Excursions, Massage, Photography, Relaxation, Romance, Running, Sailing, Shopping, Snorkelling, Star Gazing, Sunset Cruises, Sundowners, Swimming, Sun tanning, yacht charters, live aboard, Walks, Whales (seasonal) Wildlife
