    • Zambia to Mozambique

      Mozambique May 13, 2014 at 7:41 AM

      Hi! I am in the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia and would like to travel to Vilanculos in Mozambique. Flights are incredibly expensive ($1000 +) and inconvenient so I would like to do it by other means... I have heard, by word of mouth, that I could take a bus to Chipata, then a bus to Katete, cross the boarder at Cassacatiza, take a bus to Tete and then I would be able to find a bus to Vilanculos...However I have not been able to find this information online. Can anyone advise? or suggest bus companies? Furthermore I need a visa for Mozambique so does anyone know if i can get this at the Cassacatiza boarder? Any advice is highly appreciated! Thanks!

    • Itinerary/advice/tips Jogurg, Maputo, Tofo, further north, Gaborone, Joburg

      Mozambique Dec 31, 2013 at 2:23 AM

      Hi guys,
      Thanks in advance for any advice youve got for me :). Myself and husband want to hire a car on Jan 15th and drive up to Mozambique. Have always wanted to visit mozambique and am very excited. We need to be back with the car and to get our flight home on Jan 30th. We need to travel back via Gaborone (where we will need to stay for at least 3-4 days) before going back to Joburg.

      Can anyone suggest the best itinerary bearing in mind our time frames? Any worthwile places to stop on way from Joburg to Maputo? Stay time in Maputo- 3 days? Head up to Inhambane and Tofo? Worth going further up to the islands? We would have to come back via the same route to get back to Gabs? Any ideas on itinerary much appreciated

      Also any suggestions for best budget car hire company- type of car needed (im guessing we wont really need a 4x4 or am i underestimating the roads?) and the company which will allow us to go in to mozambique and bots and set us up with all the right equipment needed for road checks (if that exists).

      Also any advice on getting visas on british passports. Can we get them at the border?

      Thanks again!

      Visto de chegada no Aeroporto

      Mozambique Apr 18, 2013 at 9:02 AM

      Boa tarde a todos,

      Estou indo a Maputo em Junho encontrar um amigo que reside lá. Esse meu amigo garante para mim que é possível obter o visto para Moçambique no próprio aeroporto de Maputo, disse que esse ano já recebeu outros hóspedes da Europa que o fizeram sem problema.

      A questão é que pela internet não encontro a confirmação dessa informação nem em sites oficiais do governo; o que li é que pela enorme quantidade de estrangeiros, principalmente Portugueses, entrando no país dessa forma e ali permanecendo ilegalmente, o governo não estava mais oferecendo essa facilidade.

      Meu problema é que o visto de Moçambique aqui no Brasil só é emitido em Brasília, e eu tenho receio de enviar meu passaporte por correio.

      Algum de vocês sabe se ainda é possível obter o visto de chegada no Aeroporto de Maputo? em caso afirmativo, quanto custa?

      Agradeço antecipadamente a atenção de todos!

    • Elephant reserve Maputo

      Dear all

      It'll be my third time in Maputo, but I was always in transit. This time I really want to visit a looot :)
      So I thought it could be cool to combine a visit to the Inhaca and Portuguese Islands with a visit to the Elephant reserve. The problem is I cannot find any up to date information online. Can someone help?

      Since I'm travelling afterwards to Niassa, I'm not affiliated with any hotel or tour operator. Of course I'd be keen to join any organized tour/ or group to the Elephant reserve. Any tips are more more than welcome :)

      I have read shuttles stop running at 10 pm, so I would like to know whether the hotel I have booked could see about transportation from the international airport to the hotel and the cost for doing so, however, I have been trying to send an e-mail to Erboy Hotel, but I can't access it as there are booking sites that control the contact. I would be grateful if I could have some clear information. Thanks
