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.

We love capulana and it's fascinating cultural significance. I'm so pleased you were able to get up close and personal with it! Selemane and George really enjoyed the opportunity to do something special for you.

Thanks so much. The guides take a lot of pride in their work and love to hear feedback. And as you know the humpback whales are so curious...if they could, I'm sure they would say a big thanks too!

A cycle tour is an ideal way to get a good overview of Mozambique Island, which is quite small and very flat. The tour covered all the main points, with useful insights and interesting history, which would probably have been otherwise missed

Thanks for your review of our bike tour. As you say its still the "best way to visit the Island".Over the next few weeks we hope to post news on new bike initiatives that will make the island even more bicycle friendly. Pete
