Ilha do Fogo, a beautiful and remote island, lies off the Northern coast of Mozambique. It is surrounded by stretches of ocean that is home to a  breathtaking variety of marine life.

This Island forms the focal point of Fire Island Conservation projects, which encompasses marine and wildlife conservation as well as community upliftment projects. It was in 2014 when Robert (Bob) Koski, from Sarasota on the Gulf Coast of Florida, was presented with the opportunity to own this stunning piece of land.

Upon his visits to the refined white shores of the island Bob found multiple poachers and a ‘slaughter house’ of turtles and other sea creatures. He realized the threat they pose to the already vulnerable species around the area.

At first the plan was to establish an up-market boutique hotel on the island. It soon became evident that creating a safe haven for marine life was more important. From then on there have been continuous efforts to reduce illegal fishing activities in the area. Subsequently a couple other eco retreats have been established on the Southern African coastline to help fund the conservation efforts.

These eco retreats help fund the projects on the island. A portion of all their earnings goes back into conservation, they also offer job opportunities to the local communities and help to create awareness about the Fire Island projects.

All these luxuriously alluring lodges offer you the opportunity to connect with nature while enjoying your stay in a secluded, peaceful and private setting.  Of course, along with up-market accommodation, these lodges also offer activities and adventures such as fishing, snorkelling, surfing, swimming, kayaking, hiking and even scuba diving.

Booking your stay with us will give you the opportunity to explore, and protect, the wonderful world hidden beneath the surface. With 150 km of mostly unexplored reefs, a dive with us is a must.

Join us on one of our eco-conscious, conservation-friendly dives into the unknown wonders that lurk beneath the waves. Be sure to book ahead of time, as we can only accommodate small groups of people at a time.

Fire Island invites you to come in with an open mind and adventurous spirit, to experience the gifts of a natural sanctuary.
