Ibo  Island Lodge is a prime holiday vacations or honeymoon destination for those looking for a unique experience. Ibo Island can easily be combined with an African safari or the other lodges or hotels in the Quirimbas Archipelago.

Ibo Island lodge encompasses three magnificent luxury mansions each over a century old with walls a meter thick and high lofty ceilings. Located right on the prime waterfront site, where romantic dhows sail out to sea on each high tide, the lodge offers a classic island experience, and with just 9 luxury rooms assures guests of exceptional service and flexibility.

Encounter empty stretches of beaches and explore some of the world's richest coral reefs.  Discover a coastline fringed by tropical islands on an ancient Arab dhow - still built to the same design as the vessels which a thousand years ago sailed from India. Snack on cashew nuts and tropical fruit and dine on the freshest of seafood of every description. Explore ancient forts and long abandoned streets - Ibo Island is a destination like no other.
