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.
