Getting to Ibo Island

You can easily connect to Ibo Island in northern Mozambique from South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania. Pemba is in the Cabo Delgado Province and is the gateway to the Quirimbas Islands – just a short island hop away. There are daily flights from Johannesburg to Pemba and regular flights from Dar – Es – Salaam and Nairobi.   At Pemba, you will be met by a representative of Ibo Island Lodge who will either escort you directly to the next light aircraft to the island, or to the air-conditioned waiting room for your short flight to Ibo Island.

The light aircraft transfer to Ibo is often the highlight. Flying low over the beautiful islands and clear turquoise waters where you can sometimes spot turtles and whales in season. Ibo Island waits hidden just approximately 25 minutes away.

Are We There Yet?

Miles of tropical palm lined coastline and sparkling blue ocean separate Ibo from tall buildings and industry. Ibo Island feels like a place that was forgotten and where time has stood still, but now people are getting to know her again. The air strip at Ibo Island is a grass strip in good condition where you will be met by a member of the lodge team ready to give you a warm welcome to Ibo Island Lodge.

Hi Fiona and Kevin

We returned on Saturday from our wonderful week at the Lodge. We will give some formal feedback and we have posted something on Tripadvisor but I just wanted to thank you personally for ensuring that our wedding anniversary celebration was such a memorable occasion. The special touches of some champagne and cake in addition to the other great meals were much appreciated and your well-trained staff all went out of their way to take good care of us all of the time. It was exactly the experience we were hoping to have.

We also want to commend you on what you have done for the island in general. I trust that it is appreciated and that you are given appropriate recognition for the difference you have made to people’s lives there; but even if it is not always fully acknowledged, I hope that it gives you a lot of satisfaction after the immense effort you must have put in to turn the Lodge into what it is today.

 

Congratulations and best wishes
