By Plane

With the quaint Inhambane airport just 23 kilometres from Tofo’s pristine sandy shores and Baia Sonambula, reaching paradise is just a short flight away. LAM flights departure Johannesburg and they go via either Maputo or Vilankulos. On arrival, we can organise an airport transfer for you. The airport transfer is free for staying of 5 night or more.

For people who don’t want to fly with LAM, there are 2 slightly longer options.

The first option is to fly directly from Johannesburg to Vilankulos with Airlink or South Africa air-line. The flights are daily and they run on a perfect schedule. From Vilankulos we can organize a taxi for you. The journey will take a further 4.5 hours.

The second option is to fly Johannesburg-Maputo with South Africa air-line. There are quite a few flights per day. Once in Maputo you can either come up with Public Transportation, Rent a car or hire a private taxi. Time and cost vary greatly between a private taxi and public transportation.

By Car

For those driving, Inhambane is about 500 kilometres north of Mozambique’s capital city, Maputo, along good bitumen roads. Whilst the road is in excellent condition and suitable for all vehicles we advise guests to allow seven hours from Maputo as traffic can be congested in the capital and police heavily enforce the 60-kilometre speed limit in the string of picturesque villages and towns the road winds its way through.

Once you arrive in Inhambane, head east and simply follow the “Praia do Tofo” signs for about 23 kilometres. At “Babalaza”, a small town with a string of roadside stalls, turn sharply right when the road folks and continue for five kilometres. There is a petrol station with an ATM on this road. Please note this is the last petrol station and there are no ATMs in Tofo.

Upon arrival at Tofo look out for our sign directing you to turn left into a sandy road. If you are driving a raised 4X4 take this road, otherwise we advise driving for another 100 metres to the next sandy road which is suitable for all vehicles. Either way, continue along the sandy roads for a further 500 metres following our signs until you reach the sea and our wooden double gates. You can safely park your car outside our doors. Welcome to Baia Sonambula.
