TRAVEL TO IBO ISLAND

swirl 2

Ibo Island is a fascinating historical landmark in the Quirimbas archipelago, famous for its ancient buildings dating back to the 1500’s when traders shipped slaves, gold and ivory from the shores of Africa to the Arab world. Populated and influenced by Portuguese, Chinese, Dutch, Indian and Arab culture, the island’s architectural heirlooms are a reminder of historical years when the island was the second most important trading post, after Ilha de Mozambique.

Relics of ancient times are concealed by indigenous plants and bright bougainvillea, evidence of turbulent history when ivory, turtle shell and amber were traded off this strategic island. Some of Mozambique’s oldest buildings are found on the island, now one of Africa’s best kept secrets.

The island is part of the Quirimbas National Park and is accessible by Dhow or power boat. Explore  pristine white sandy beaches, colorful coral reefs, rich marine life and the crystal clear water of the warm Indian Ocean on one of Africa’s most ‘off the beaten track’ romantic islands,  where privacy and tranquility await you.
