Have been unable to confirm if the train from Nampula to Cuamba is a daily train or if it only runs on certain days,
if anyone has information would be greatly appreciated
I am trying to understand the the transportation option getting to and from Mozambique Island from Nampula. I have read there is an early am bus each way, but would love to know if
-are other options, i.e. minibuses?
-can one arrange a car (and how much)?
Trying to figure out it is possible to not be locked into early am buses being only means of transportation for planning purposes
Some things I wish I had known before I went on a recent (September – October) trip from Ilha Mozambique across to Swakopmund by public transport and hitching through Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia on my alternative Cape to Cairo (Coast to Coast – I don’t get that much holiday!) visiting castles and sites of colonial importance (I am a geek).
I got the visa in advance from the Mozambique Embassy in the UK, they were really efficient (I posted the passport and form about a week…
I'm looking for some advice on getting from Zimbabwe to Mozambique Island and then moving on to Malawi.
My initial idealized plan at the moment looks like this:
Day 1: arrive Harare midday
Day 2: Harare to Tete crossing the ZWE/MOZ border at Nyamapanda, fly Tete to Nampula on LAM in the evening
Day 3: morning chapa from Nampula to Mozambique Island
Day 4/5: Mozambique Island
Day 6: early morning chapa to Nampula
Day 7: early morning train to Cuamba (if running...)
Day 8: from Cuamba to…
We rented a car in Johannesburg South Africa. At the rental car counter they charged us an extra 750 rand for a letter granting us permission to take the car into Mozambique (we also took the car into Swaziland, but did not tell the rental agency as they would have charged us more for that country also). We drove to Hlane National Park in Swaziland without any issues. The border crossing was easy and painless. When we entered Mozambique, we had to show the letter from the rental company…
Has anyone got a visa issued at Inhambane airport recently. We are planning on entering next month but it is almost 500 dollars to get a visa in Toronto ahead of time. This is a game changer for us and we would of course prefer to get a cheap visa on arrival. Thanks.,

Here's the brief:
My wife and I are flying into Pemba in December and leaving 8 night later. It's our honeymoon and we can tag on a few night of high end island lodges at the end, but I'm keen to know what we can do for the first half of our stay.
Questions for the LP community as follows - any help would be much appreciated:
- How long on Ibo island?
- Are there any hidden gems inland that shouldn't be missed?
- Can a good few nights be spent going up/down the coast (not island hopping)?
My boyfriend (African) and I (Canadian) are in the process of planning an overland trip this December from Francistown, Botswana to Tofo, Mozambique (as cheap as possible, so likely via public transport and buses). For visa reasons, we'd like to do this without going through South Africa... which tacks on a lot more travel time, it seems.
Can anyone advise the best route, how many days it will take, and approximate cost estimates? Currently, I've got the following itinerary but don't know if…
We have 3 boys aged now 8 / 5 / 3 years old, so when it comes to travel all together we try to choose the good balance between a place that they will for sure enjoy and a way to relax for us !
last may we booked for one month at BAOBIBO in Ibo, a small compound with 3 bungalows, space to run and play and the mangroove, plus a lot of exciting fishes to see under the clear water.... but our dreamed holidays became a nightmare when it turned out that the owner of the palce couldn't stand the lively…
