Mozambique International airport flight schedule

You will arrive at Pemba International Airport. You will disembark the plane and walk across to the small Pemba arrivals room. If you are booked on direct flights to Pemba (i.e. not via Maputo) you will need to clear customs, and immigration formalities in Pemba before leaving the arrivals area. If you have flown via Maputo you will normally have cleared formalities there.

Once you have collected your luggage and cleared formalities you will be met by a representative of Ibo Island Lodge. His name is Oscar Soares and his contact number is +258 82 661 9500. In the unlikely event that you are not met, please call Lutfiyyah Davids directly (based in head office in South Africa) on: phone +27 82 704 5863 or +27 21 785 2657. Emergency / after hours cell phone is +27 (0) 72 577 8575.

Depending on the time of your air transfer to Ibo Island, the Ibo Island Lodge representative will either escort you directly to the plane or to the waiting room for your flight to Ibo Island.

Please note that there is a strict restriction of 15 kg per person of SOFT luggage including hand luggage. If this is not adhered to, the pilot may leave the bags behind. In an effort to keep the cost of the air transfers reasonable, the lodges in the region co-operate to share daily schedules where ever possible. The rate you have been quoted is therefore ‘a seat in a plane rate’ rather than a charter rate, which means that guests fit into the combined Quirimbas lodge requirements of each day as op-posed to a private plane charter.

Private charter flights to Pemba are available on request at the time of booking Ibo Island Lodge, but are more expensive.

Dear Rob, Glynn and The Team @ Ibo!

What a wonderful stay and dhow safari we have had!! An amazing island and a gorgeous lodge. The experience has truly been fantastic! From arriving by dhow to finishing with our private beach diner, it has all been magical!! Hope to get back one day!

What a wonderful experience! I have enjoyed every minute and learnt so much about Ibo Island culture. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and hope to return one day. I wish you every success.

Thank you for an amazing experience! I will take memories and photos and new friends away with me. Harris is an amazing guide and really comfortable to be around and his knowledge is outstanding. The Dhow safari was a great way to travel and I felt truly relaxed. Rob and Glynn and Ibo you have been really hospitable and I feel like you are instant friends. Thank you again.

The opportunity to share your special part of the world has been fantastic. Thank you for all your hospitality, personal touches & obvious passion for the island of Ibo. We leave with happy memories, many photos and the pleasure of sharing those with you & the islanders. Thank you for the fabulous birthday celebrations – so so special.
