"Wonderfully eccentric slice of island life Fabulous old lodge with well appointed rooms and small courtyard gardens with plenty of sun loungers and small pools. We had a large room at the back of the property with a private shaded and cool balcony which was lovely in the heat of the day as it also had a fan. You can have lots of adventures from Ibo like swimming with the dolphins and taking a dhow out to the sandbank for lunch."

The rooms and landscape a beautiful, and the service is truly exceptional. My group also did the Dhow Safari adventure, and it was amazing. Wilfred and Cosmo were fantastic guides for us and led a team of the most impressive crew imaginable."
