Airlink connects you to Pemba Northern Mozambique with direct flights from Johannesburg.


Pemba is a port city situated on the tip of a peninsula in Northern Mozambique. With its deep natural harbour, Pemba is known as the third largest port in the world. It is also a gateway for tourists wishing to visit the Quirimbas Archipelago, a largely untouched stretch of coral islands that runs to the north of Pemba. It is also the first stop in a Mozambique safari to Niassa Wildlife Reserve or Gorongosa National Park.


While the nearby Quirimbas Archipelago and parks may be some of Pemba’s most obvious draw points, the town of Pemba itself is certainly worth exploring. It is loved by travellers for providing a fascinating introduction to the dramatic historical architecture that Mozambique is famous for. A guided tour around this former colonial outpost brings the area’s history to life. Soak up the sun on Pemba’s wide, sandy, palm-fringed beaches. Surrounded by a coral reef, there are plenty of safe swimming and snorkelling spots. It’s the ideal base for a bush and beach holiday.


For your return journey fly back to Johannesburg and travel beyond with Airlink to other key leisure destinations.
