Luxury hotels, wildlife, and homes have been torched and “reduced to ashes” in the militant attacks.
The ISIS insurgents have ordered residents to abandon the islands of Vamizi and Mecungo – where celebrities like Daniel Craig, Bono and Prince Albert of Monaco have holidayed in luxury.
Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and political leader Nelson Mandela have also been known to have enjoyed holidays on the picturesque island.
Burnt-out beach huts and torched safari cars were pictured on Vamizi Island.
One resident of Mecungo island told AFP that the insurgents had arrived by boat at night and rounded everyone up.
The local said: “They told us to run if we want to live. Everyone left the island.”
