Ibo Island Lodge is the ONLY operator to offer fully guided tailor made mobile island hopping dhow safaris. The dhow safaris are led by a pro guide experienced in these waters, and are backed up by a 12 meter beautiful support dhow with a skipper, crew and chef on board. You don’t sleep on board - instead mobile camps are set up on various tropical islands and special spots. The camps are eco friendly and rustic with all the necessary equipment. You are able to walk around and explore the island,kayak,swim, snorkel or just relax.

All safaris include the magic and comfort of Ibo Island Lodge at the end of the safari: Outstanding guided historical and cultural interactions, sandbank beach experience, guided bird walks, kayaking through mangrove forests and much more.

We had an incredible special time here at Ibo Lodge. Thanks for such fabulous hospitality in such a wonderful setting. Extra special thanks to Gillie and Kissinger who went above and beyond every time. We will never forget swimming with the dolphins or being welcomed at every meal so politely, happily.

We will be back!

We have had 3 wonderful days here at the lodge and are about to embark on a 2-day dhow safari. What a team! They have looked after our every need and kept us well entertained (even if the dolphins didn’t show up).

Many thanks indeed!

We thank you all for a fantastic holiday at the lodge and during the Dhow safari. Everybody went far beyond their duty starting from the amazing chefs, the friendly and constantly running waiters, the guide and ship crew who tried to make every wish possible and had a lot of flexibility to accommodate our schedule….

We won’t forget this incredible time; you are blessed to live in such an amazing environment. We will remember the beautiful sunsets in the cold European winter days
