How to get to Guludo Beach Lodge, Quirimbas National Park
This Mozambique honeymoon destination is the perfect beach escape.
Between the lush vegetation of northern Quirimbas National Park, Mozambique and the white sandy seashore is this exemplary eco-friendly lodge. African wildlife and colourful marine species can be seen in the same day – guests can have a dream holiday in this pristine area relaxing or enjoying a number of exciting activities.
The Quirimbas National Park, Mozambique, lies just north of Pemba, the location of the nearest airport to Guludo Beach Lodge. The Park is green and lush, one of the few places you can see Elephant during the day, one of the four Big Five animals that live here. An excursion to Elephant Lookout for sundowners is a must.
The Mozambique coast has some of the best dive sites in the world, with untouched coral reefs, exquisite marine life and crystal clear waters, guests can learn to dive at Guludo Beach Lodge where a variety of professional PADI courses are held from beginner to advanced level.
Historic Ibo Island and idyllic Rolas Island are close to Guludo Beach Lodge, excursions to both are highly recommended. Guests can also visit fascinating Mangrove forests just south of the lodge, for peaceful guided, exploration in a dug out canoe through the channels. An unforgettable cultural highlight is a visit with the villagers of Guludo.
Guludo Beach Lodge has been constructed to ensure minimal environmental impact and strict ethical principals are in place so that the host communities and environment derive maximum benefit though the lodge.
How to get to Guludo Beach Lodge
There are regular flights from Johannesburg, Dar es Salaam, Nairobi and Maputo to Pemba. Once in Pemba, guests will be met by a Guludo staff member for the lodge transfer, or transfer to accommodation in Pemba for an overnight stay to be transferred to the lodge the next morning. Transfers can also be arranged from other nearby lodges.
There are a number of transfer options from Pemba to the lodge and out again, private charters can also be organised for group travel:
An adventurous, but scenic road transfer through the Quirimbas National Park taking 3 and a half hours, the last 50km (31 miles) is on a bumpy dirt road.
This is a scenic and exciting helicopter transfer which takes 40 minutes.
This involves a flight from Pemba to Matemo Island taking about 25 minutes; there is no set departure time as guests fit in with the schedule for the day. Guludo Beach Lodge staff then transfer guests by boat from Matemo which takes about 15 minutes.
NB: There is a weight limit on the small charter planes and helicopter of maximum 15kg (33 pounds) in soft luggage including hand luggage.
