    Getting from Tofo – Nelspruit : My experience with Tours2moz

    We had completed our dive in Tofo and were done with Mozambique. It was time to make our way back to Nelspruit in South Africa. Now the question was, how were we going to get out of Mozambique/Tofo? There was no way we were taking flights because of the cost.

    A Guide on travelling from Johannesburg to Maputo : via Intercape bus and getting visa on arrival in Mozambique

    Context When we were planning our trip, we decided that the most efficient way was for us to take an overnight bus to Mozambique, Maputo specifically. We decided to leave exploring Johannesburg for the last few days of our trip as our flights were a return trip to Johannesburg and there was an Intercape overnight bus to Maputo. As Maputo, the capital of Mozambique was really close to Johannesburg and Nelspruit, it was a no-brainer to explore travelling overland to Mozambique. Therefore, this was our plan. Our trip was on Dec 2017. Upon landing in Johannesburg, we had half a day to change some money, sight-see or meet a couchsurfer…
