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.
