Dhow Safari Quirimbas s 

2 nights, 3 days safari in the Quirimbas Archipelago.

You want to explore a bit more of the islands, we can organize a 2 nights camping safari, taking you to Rolas Island, Matemo Island and Ibo Island.
Each island offers a different experience as each individual island as a different vibe to it, reflected in the type of constructions and the attitude of people.
 

 

 

The Islands

Rolas island which takes its name from the birds present on the island, is only inhabited by seasonal fishermen living in basic settlements, one park ranger and the giant coconut crabs. Being a very small island it is possible to go around in the space of 1 hour. The corals are totally preserved and the white sand beach totally unspoiled.
Matemo island being the largest of the 3 islands, you will experience a Muslim / Animist society preserved from the rest of the world. It is the tropical island by definition with white sand and Palm trees. Walking through the villages will make your reflect on your values and will, more than any other island, let you assimilate what the Quirimbas island life is about.
Ibo island the most famous of the islands, is equally the most different of all. Offering a Time window opened to the past Portuguese colonial era. The architecture of the buildings are unique to the island and using your imagination as leverage you will rebuild the splendor of the old times.
