Overview

Ilha Blue Island Safaris operate tours and activities in and around Ilha de Mocambique, an African World Heritage island floating in the Indian ocean. This is your chance to be immersed in real Ilha life – an exotic mix of Makua, Swahili, Arabic, Indian, and Portuguese cultures. We offer low impact, small group tours by bicycle, sea-kayak and Arabic sailing dhow. Each tour provides you with a unique and intimate Ilha experience.
