Quirimbas Archipelago

Quirimbas Archipelago

The remote island paradise of the Quirimbas Archipelago is made up of over 30 idyllic coral islands, with white sand beaches that are silky and unspoilt, crystal clear tropical waters and palm trees lining the horizon. It makes for a fantastic combination with a stay at Chitwa Chitwa.

Tourists are few and far between which means that you’ll have beaches of indescribable beauty all to yourselves. Pemba itself is a rustic and historic town - nicknamed Mozambique's papaya paradise. It's a little run down, but is the gateway to the Islands. Probably the best place to stay in Pemba is the Pemba Beach Hotel.

Vamizi Island Lodge is Chitwa Chitwa’s sister property so we can wholeheartedly recommend a visit! It’s a magical place. Some islands can be reached by boat, but in general you will take a short flight from Pemba to your island. Ibo Island is closest - about 15 minutes from Pemba, while Vamizi is farthest - about a 50 minute flight from Pemba.

We’ve featured a selection of the most popular southern and eastern African destinations in our Tours, but we can help you plan a holiday to any destination, with an itinerary tailored to suit your budget, interests and needs.

Chitwa Chitwa Game Lodge received a Best Value Award for Kruger National Park Accommodation.
