IBO ISLAND LODGE

Diving the Red SeaCultural Travel in EgyptIbo Island Lodge Romance

Nestled in the awesome Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique, and nominated for World Heritage status, Ibo is an island that is remote and untouched by commercial developments and one of the most fascinating, idyllic islands you could dream of visiting.

For the last 500 years Ibo Island was a prosperous and important trading post along the coast of East Africa. Grand colonial administration buildings lined its streets, and three majestic forts stood guard over the sea. This little coral and palm-fringed island has a turbulent history of slave trading, pirates, and intrigue. The ruins date back to the early 1500s and Ibo Island Lodge immerses its guests in this history, encompassing original mansions each over 100 years old

LODGE AND ACCOMMODATION

Ibo Island lodge is located on prime waterfront, where romantic dhows sail out to sea on high tide. Ibo is a potential World Heritage Site and therefore the Lodge rooms have been designed to incorporate the original architecture of the buildings with walls over a meter thick and lofty ceilings.

The wide verandas are furnished with hand crafted furniture and soft cushions. The lodge has two swimming pools set in tropical gardens, an air-conditioned lounge and private dinning room as well as a roof terrace restaurant with an open-air lounge area for unforgettable sunsets, spectacualar views of the bay, and after dinner drinks under the stars.

All rooms are individually designed and unique. Some are sea facing, and some are garden facing, but all rooms feature air-conditioning,ceiling fans, large windows, King size extra length crafted bed with mosquito net, indigenous teak and mahogany handcrafted furniture, linen gowns, hair dryer, water flasks, and morning tea and coffee.

COMMUNITY EMPOWERING TOURISM

As the pioneer tourism investment on Ibo Island and a specialist tour operator to the Quirimbas Archipelago, the company believes that it is critical that local communities benefit greatly from the Ibo Island Lodge development - which is based on sustainable and fair trade tourism. This is quality, low impact and ethical tourism where each guest’s visit make’s a difference.

NATIONAL PARK AND CONSERVATION

Ibo Island also boasts much more than historical importance. Easily one of the most un-spoilt destinations on the planet, Ibo also falls within the newly created Quirimbas National Park. Beyond the warm turquoise waters inhabited by turtles and tropical fish, the ocean around Ibo is also home to dolphins, whales and the shy and mysterious dugong.
