Central Mozambique in detail

Flights & getting there


Central Mozambique has four airports providing links to other parts of the country: Beira, Tete, Quelimane and Chimoio. Beira and Tete also have international flights to Zimbabwe, Malawi and South Africa.


Buses from southern Mozambique converge on Beira before heading north to Quelimane, Nampula and beyond. Tete acts as a gateway to Malawi and Zimbabwe, and, to a lesser extent, Zambia. Chimoio sits at the western end of the Beira Corridor and has good connections east to Beira and west to the popular land border with Zimbabwe.

Travel & Security in Central Mozambique

Following attacks by Renamo opposition forces on buses in the provinces of Sofala, Manica, Tete and Zambézia in 2016, the public-transport system has been in a state of flux. Some services are suspended, several routes are subject to military convoys, and a couple of bus companies are not operating at all. As a result, transport information for the region is particularly liable to change. Check ahead before travelling in central Mozambique and always review the current security situation before setting out.
