Flights to Mozambique are constant and reliable. Visitors to Mozambique can fly in from Johannesburg to the main airport towns of Maputo, Beira, Nampula, Pemba and Vilanculos, as well as from Durban to Maputo. People leaving from Cape Town can fly direct to Beira and Nampula.
The Mozambique National Airlines, or Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM), provides domestic flights between Maputo, Inhambane and Vilanculos, and international flights between South Africa (Johannesburg and Durban) to Maputo, and Nairobi in Kenya or Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania to Pemba. Find out more about your logistics to get to Ibo Island.
Some South African airlines such as SAA and Pelican Air do provide flights between Mozambique and major South African airports.
If you are a first time visitor to Mozambique, you may book a ticket that stops over at Inhaca Island so that you can first explore this biodiversity and water sport haven. For visitors wanting to explore the Quirimbas Archipelago, it is best to fly into Pemba then get a transfer to the island of your choice – usually the island resort arranges your transfer, by small airplane, helicopter or boat.
The same applies to the Bazaruto Archipelago – fly into Vilanculos International Airport and make your way to Bazaruto, Benguerra or Magaruque Islands for the holiday of a lifetime.
You do need a visa to enter Mozambique but South Africans do not need one. However, a South African on a business trip to Mozambique does require a visa. Everyone needs a passport so please remember to pack yours!
Remember that you need cash to pay for visas and immigration at all Mozambique airports – your airline will incorporate the departure tax into your airfare.
