Via Maputo

There are several airlines flying to Maputo – usually with one stop on the way.
From Maputo there is an early morning flight to Lichinga by LAM, the national Mozambican airline, 4 times a week with a 20 minute stop-over at Nampula

A Route for the more adventurous traveler:

From Maputo take the inland flight only up to Nampula – visit Ilha de Moçambique – take a fantastic train ride from Nampula to Cuamba – continue to Lichinga by public transport – continue with us to Mbuna Bay.

From Lichinga to Mbuna Bay:

We’ll be happy to pick you up at Lichinga airport. From the provincial capital we travel 1½ hours on a paved road, passing through several villages on the Niassa High Plateau before the road descends almost 1000m through wild bush land to the lake below. The view of the far-reaching plains of Niassa, the lake and the Malawian shore on the other side are spectacular.

Arriving at the bottom of the last slope at the village of Chipili, there is a signboard “Mbuna Bay” and a turnoff to the left onto a bumpy, dirt road which leads through forests and across several hills. After 15km (40 minutes), you reach the village of Nkholongue and Mbuna Bay located directly on the shore of the lake.
