If you are traveling to Quirimbas/Ibo Island, this is the place to stay. Lucy is one of the warmest, most helpful people I have ever met. She helped me organize transport to and from the island, as well as island walks, multi-day sailing and snorkeling trips, and dinners with local families while I was there. Further, Baobibo is a little...

The Baobibo dhow safari is dependent on weather and tides and Lucie went to a lot of trouble to check the best timing for this during our stay. The Baobibo boat is a traditional Mozambique dhow with a huge sail sporting the Baobibo logo. Our friend and safari guide, Grant, plus El Capitan and his crew collected us from the...

We had an incredible time in Northern Mozambique thanks to Lucie, the gracious host of Baobibo. Lucie makes you feel like part of the family (which includes 10 dogs and 3 cays) and goes completely above and beyond in helping plan your adventure. With little time Lucie helped us charter a sailboat and planned an amazing trip through the islands,...

I had an excellent time at Baobab, extending my stay to five nights, although I would have liked to stay longer.

Baobibo is clean, comfortable, easy going, organized. Lucy made certain our activities were organized and everything went smoothly. The one day sailing safari was great-snorkeling beautiful reefs and swimming with the dolphins! Breakfasts are excellent and served in an open air dining area. The bungalows are just delightful with lots of screened windows. We stayed 4 nights and wished we...
