IBO ISLAND LODGE

OVERVIEW


Welcome to an award-winning lodge on a island in the Quirimbas Archipelago. Ibo Island Lodge has been described as one of the most magical and atmospheric lodges in Africa. Situated in the Quirimbas National Park of northern Mozambique imagine a remote Mozambican island lost in time, all but forgotten to the outside world for nearly a century.

Recline high on our rooftop terrace overlooking the impossibly blue ocean and track the slow and steady traditional sailing dhows that drift across the blue horizon. Refresh your senses with a massage and indulge yourself with a frosty cocktail at one of the pools. This is the Ibo Island Lodge life, designed to uplift and your escape from your reality. Be whisked to an idyllic sandbank beach and dive some of Africa’s richest coral reefs. Discover a coastline fringed by tropical islands on a unique island-hopping dhow safari.

Add dolphin safaris, snorkeling, sea kayaking, birding, sumptuous seafood, romance, tranquility and a perspective that will change your life forever.

Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, Ibo Island Lodge was built with the community, and today either directly or indirectly benefits a large portion of Ibo’s population. Witness and interact with a lifestyle that hasn’t changed for hundreds of years.

Authentic historical Mozambique at its best.

ACCOMMODATION

Ibo Island is a potential World Heritage Site and the lodge has been lovingly renovated and designed to incorporate as many of the original features of Mozambique’s architecture. All the rooms are all individually designed, authentic to Ibo’s history and original architecture, simple yet elegant, with splashes of opulence.

This is authentic historical Mozambique at its best.

BAR / RESTAURANT

WINE AND DINE AT OUR ROOF TOP TERRACE 

Ibo Island is blessed with an abundance of fresh crab which is quite arguably some of the finest seafood on offer. Surf-fresh seafood platters, smoked sail fish, flat breads and an array of mouthwatering tapas, coconut and chilli traditional Ibo Island crab curry, crunchy green pawpaw salad and fresh lobster grilled on an open fire are some of the highlights on the menu.  Fresh from the ocean and sourced wherever possible locally, tropical and traditional dishes are all prepared by local chefs, unhurried and from scratch.

 

Breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed in a number of different locations, served either in the privacy of your own veranda, on Ibo’s sandbank beach, at the fort of Joao Baptiste or under the palms in our tropical gardens.

Dinner becomes a little more extravagant and is served on the rooftop terrace under the stars and lantern light. With the shore just feet away, sometimes dolphins can be heard in the bay. 

 

For those who are on an island honeymoon or celebrating something special, a candle lit dinner in a range of secret and special locations can be arranged. 

The legendary Ibo Island Lodge crab feast has guests coming back for more every year!

56FT CHARTER YACHT

OVERVIEW

The Marquise 56' was Fountaine Pajot’s flagship catamaran and was beautifully built with typical French flare and class!

Designed to be a comfortable open ocean cruising yacht the 56’ Marquise is still the ideal charter catamaran. Make no mistake, the Marquise 56' is a big catamaran with one of the largest living areas of any yacht in its class.

Her bright & open saloon offers generous space and with a dining table that can sit 8 guests is a perfect place to entertain! There is a flat screen TV/ DVD, and music system, with speakers throughout. A new fully equipped galley offers everything a chef would need and with 3 fridge freezers there is plenty of space for keeping your drinks cold. There are 4 separate air conditioned ensuite double guest cabins, finished off in beautiful oak wood with white trim.

 

Elegant, simple and clean.
