Hi, I'm planning to travel to Maputo by land from Nelspruit in December. Have a question on visa - I've read through a lot of threads and seems that it is possible to get visa at the border crossing but just want to make sure that it works for this route as I've also heard that it is very difficult to get it at border so better to get beforehand. I know there's an embassy in Nelspruit has anyone tried that embassy before? How long do they usually take to process visa as I will probably stay…
Queries regarding transport from Pemba to Palma and Ibo Island, etc Hiring a car is exorbitant - is it possible to get an informal driver? What are the campsites like?
Just wondering if anyone had any current information about the current situation for tourists between Maputo and Tofo? A friend of mine is from Mozambique and has heard reports of tourists being targetted and kidnaps - I know the situation isn't great around Beira but didn't realise there were problems this far south and just wondered if there were any current rising tensions.

Hi, we will be visiting mozambique in a few weeks time and like to book a safari to gorongosa and kruger np. Are there any companies in Maputo you would recommend?
I'm currently in Maputo and will be here for two more nights. I'd like to go somewhere else on the 6th and get a taste of a different part of Mozambique for a few days.

So I guess I will need to fly to Nampula by the 9th or morning of the 10th and then go to Ilha do Mozambique. Is it easy enough to get taxis between Nampula and Ilha do…
I posted this in the Zimbabwe thread also. I am planning a short trip to Southern Africa in September and was after some help and ideas for my itinerary from those experienced in the areas -
I have 14 full days and fly into Joburg, SA and out of Harare, Zimbabwe.
If time allows, I would love to visit the following:
- Kruger NP
- Inhambane / Togo Beach (3 days?)
- Vic Falls (maybe only one night as I have visited here before)
- Either Hwange NP or Mana Pools NP (I heard…
Travelling overland was the hardest bit about Mozambique for me. Below is what I experienced by using private buses, public buses, chapas and the Nampula to Cuamba train.
Manzini, Swaziland to Maputo
Easy to travel from Mazini to Maputo in Mozambique; minibus departs when full from that minibus stand in Manzini. I was there at around 7am and it took maybe 1.5…
