How do I get to and around Mozambique?

There are a multitude of different transport methods to get to and around Mozambique

Flights to Mozambique connect the country to other destinations in Southern and East Africa, via the international airports of Vilanculos and Pemba. Airlink is our preferred airline provider for flights from South Africa to Mozambique


Regional and local scheduled flights connect Maputo, Vilanculos and Pemba with neighbouring countries.

Private and scheduled charters are easily arranged from either Johannesburg or Nelspruit to various destinations within Mozambique. Most island resorts are reached by helicopter, shuttle flights and road transfers. A few of the lodges are only accessible by boat.


Most trips to Mozambique come with transfers included and you are advised to make use of these.

We do not recommend Mozambique as a self-drive destination.
