Ibo Island

Situated on a small island in the Quirimbas Archipelago, in the northern part of Mozambique sits the gorgeous Ibo Island Lodge. Surrounded by tropical bush, palm trees and views over the ocean it is the epitome of paradise. The lodge has been renovated in recent years and the design incorporates much of the old original features. With lots to do on the island as well as excursions to the islands around, was all worries away and relax in the beautiful setting you are in.

Why we love Ibo Island!

Close to Ibo Island it is easily accessible, and it is the perfect way to enjoy a day out in paradise. You can either enjoy some time to yourself under a private umbrella, or head to the tent that the lodge has set up. There’s a mobile bar, sit back and enjoy one of the delicious cocktails.

All the rooms have been individually designed and have a touch of Mozambique history and architecture to each. They have savoured as much of the original features and its clear through each of the rooms. They are simple, elegant and have splashes of luxury to them.

Client Reviews

  • Secret Island Paradise!

    We were absolutely blown away by our recent stay at Ibo Island Lodge!! It is a secluded island getaway that fully exceeded our expectations. The staff is incredible, so kind, helpful and spoke great English. Management was wonderful in helping accommodate our little one and we loved our staff.

  • 3 nights at Ibo Island Lodge

    As a family of 4 arriving from the Northern Hemisphere it was always going to be a challenge as to whether it was worth all the traveling and the unanimous verdict is that it totally was. The island was described to us prior to our journey as Zanzibar 100 years ago and it was easy to see why with an incredible reminder of the islands historic past and Ibo Island Lodge was like a crown on top.

  • Amazing experience….

    A very special 7 night trip, included was a very memorable 4 night dhow safari. Ibo lodge is an oasis of hospitality & care in an area which has undergone hardship. The staff are amazing & go the extra mile to make you feel at home. The dhow safari was a highlight.
