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…
Is Mozambique still considered safe to go to? The situation with RENAMO seems a bit fuzzy at best - 11,000 people leaving for Zimbabwe? But it doesn't look like they're targeting civilians?
We'll be driving through from Zim in October.
Hi we are travelling to SA we,ll have a rental car, and thought to travel to Kosi Bay, leave the car and try get a transfer into Mozambique, where should we visit to relax at lovely beach type resort? I dont want basic but cant afford top luxury, thanks
I plan to visit Mozambique next month. I want to fly from Maputo to Namula, visit Ilha do Mozambique, then exit the country by flight onward from Nampula or Pemba ideally to Comoros, or if not, to Malawi.
Are there any direct flights from Nampula/Pemba to Comoros or Malawi? If so, on what airlines and how can I book those flights?
Google flights says that Ewa Air flies from Pemba to Dzaoudzi but I emailed Ewa Air and they tell me they have stopped this route.
I've seen info online…
I am planning a two-week trip to Mozambique in the second half of July. I want to visit Maputo, Inhambane, Beira, Ilha de Mocambique, Cuamba and then enter Malawi. I got myself the 6th edition of the Bradt guide.
1) To save time, I would not mind taking domestic flights. But most seem to come from or go to Maputo. There appears to be a LAM flight from Beira to Nampula, which I might take. With my intended route, are there any other or additional options to cut down on endless bus rides?
I am planning a trip to Mozambique as part of a longer Africa trip later this year. I plan to get my visa in London, but notice that applicants are supposed to supply evidence of return flights in and out of the country. As we will be travelling overland, I won't have evidence of flights. Has anybody got a visa in advanced without having flights booked? UK passport if that's relevant.
I am in Maputo in June for a work trip, busy from Tuesday until Thursday, but am flying in the Saturday before and out the Sunday after, so will have 2.5 days free before work and 2.5 days free after. What would you recommend doing in the area?
I will be travelling alone so more than one day on the beach and I will probably get bored, although I do dive so would be interested in any diving in the area. What is a reasonable itinerary for that amount of time, and are there any places within…
