Ibo Island Lodge

Ibo Island Lodge is in the Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique, reached from Pemba via a scenic 30-minute flight over the Quirimbas National Park. This community-built lodge resembles the original ruins of the ancient Ibo mansions with metre-thick coral and lime walls, wide verandas, and oversized rooms.

There are nine rooms with air-conditioning and large en suites featuring walk-in showers. Meals are served either indoors, on the rooftop terrace, or at the water's edge with seafood being particularly good. Activities include an historical guided tour of the island, sea kayaking, scuba diving, dhow sailing and deep sea fishing. Dhow and kayak safaris can be also arranged - they involve travelling for a few days with a guide, sleeping in fully-serviced tented camps on some of the neighbouring islands.

Why we like it 

The roof terreace overlooking the ocean is the perfect place to watch the dhows drifting across the blue horizon in front of you.
