Imagine 3 to 4 nights on a dhow, hopping between remote islands and camping on undiscovered beaches? Mingle with marine animals, go to sleep to the sound of the surf and gaze in awe at the millions of stars overhead when you enjoy a mobile island hopping dhow safari at Ibo Island Lodge in the magical Quirimbas Archipelago.

Ibo Island Lodge is the only Mozambique island holiday destination to offer scheduled and tailor made Mozambique island hopping dhow safaris into the Quirimbas Archipelago. Explore some of the 32 islands in this remote part of the African coastline region. Go for the standard recommended minimum itinerary of 4 nights’ island hopping by dhow or kayak and 3 nights at Ibo Island Lodge – or feel free to tailor make your perfect adventure.

The Ibo Island Lodge dhow safaris involve the setting up of tents on a desert island somewhere, the arranging of elegant picnics for lunches under shade, while professional guides and local crews leave you in peace.  Evening fires and lanterns are lit and food grilled to perfection – smell those Mozambican spices as the lobster cooks!

The great outdoors – tents are fully equipped for casual camping with mattresses, linen, towels and lanterns
