I'm planning to visit Ilha de Mocambique on a very short 2-day trip. I'll be flying in and out of APL (Nampula) and hence require transportation to the Ilha. Given the short duration I don't want to lose time looking for buses or negotiating with taxi drivers.
Is there a way to pre-arrange a taxi (both ways) and what cost should I expect?
I am planning to go to Mozambique via Kruger park then Maputo and flying to Pemba.
After that I want to go to Lilongwe in Malawi via Nampula, Cuamba and Chiponde.
Possibly also taking the train from Nampula to Cuamba.
But I have heard that many routes are dangerous because of RENAMO attacks.
Does anyone has recent news about how the road is fro Nampula to Cuamba?
And what days does the train go between Nampula and Cuamba?
I'm planning to visit Mozambique in November, travelling through South Africa and Swaziland in the week prior.
I have read on the Mozambique High Commissioner's website that travellers to Mozambique require '3 consecutive blank pages in their passport'. I only have 2 blank pages in my passport left, which are consecutive.
Does anyone know how tightly that rule is enforced? It seems very strict and arbitrary!
I will be traveling to Namibia and Mozambique from the USA this Jan. I understand I will be able to get a visa at the airport in Namibia but wondering about Mozambique? Thanks
We are a family of three and we are planning our stay in Mozambique in December.
We would like to first stay in Maputo for 2 nights then move on to a nice beach resort not too far away.
Do you know any good resorts not so far from Maputo ( maybe 1h by air).
I'm just back from Moz but thought I'd share the discovery that there's a new border crossing opened up to Tanzania that takes you to Newala.
the current LP guide says there's a daily chapa in the morning from Mueda to Masasi via Negromane but when I arrived at Mueda in early afternoon, there was a 30-seater Coaster style bus that did that route leaving at 3pm. There was still one at 7am, so I chose to do that, because it gave me the chance to look around the town, with its memorial to the 1960…
I'm traveling next week to Maputo for business but I am planning to extend my stay for some days and have seen that the closest natural place to reach is the Maputo reserve. Has anyone ever been there?
I would be very grateful to have suggestions on how to get there, where to stay and any tips you think can be useful.
Many many thanks!!!
Hi all, I was advised by Fatimas Backpackers in Maputo that it is usually very difficult and a lot of trouble for Asians (and North Africans) to get visa at the border when travelling to Maputo (I will go from Nelspruit). Does any of you (especially Asians or have travelled with Asians) know if that is really the case? I am from Singapore (Not China), living in Netherlands now and there is no consulate in both countries, and I will be in Nelspruit during Christmas period which means consulates…
Any suggestions on routes?
Struggling find any useful info online..
Looking to leave Maputo on Sunday..
So far best route looks like To Mazini then stay the night and minibus down to Durban.
But ideally prefer direct !
