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.

Eco mobile Camp

There are no fixed facilities what so ever on safari, and many of the eco camps are uninhabited or habited only by migrant local and rural communities.

Camp life is eco-friendly, simple and rustic featuring 2 man 3 x 3 metre dome tents with built in ground sheets and mosquito nets. For groups with over 6 clients, separate bush ablutions are provided for men and women (long drop toilet and bush shower).

Bedding - stretches, foam mattresses and pillows are provided. For scheduled departures sleeping bags are supplied and for private tailor made departures linen is provided.

Please note that the eco camps are comfortable, but they are not 5 star luxury.
