About the neighbourhood
Most travelers to Tofo fall in love with the place. It truly is a little gem of a holiday destination, with its picture perfect beaches and friendly smiling sun ripened inhabitants who live mostly off tourism and are all too happy to have you visit their beautiful home. Tofo, Inhambane and Barra area offers various activities to chose from, from the favorite swimming with whale sharks in azure blue waters to cultural tours in the UNESCO town of Inhambane. You can surf and learn to surf in the best conditions, scuba dive, kite surf, kayak in the mangrove, ride horses on the beach and through the coconuts forest, follow a yoga session, ride bikes and quad bikes, and the locals favorite: pub crawl on the beach and get a tan. There are a variety of restaurants to chose from, from the pizza sha... more

How to get there
Airport: Inhambane: 24.0 km
LAM flies into Inhambane airport (the cutest international airport on earth) daily from Johannesburg and Maputo. Book you transfer with us or catch a taxi on arrival for the 23 km ride to Tofo.

To drive from Maputo or South Africa is easy (although quite long) and the highways are in good conditions all the way. Beware of our MozPolice who loves to hide behind a 60km/h sign for speed control. Approx travel times without stopping : Xai-Xai 4h, Maputo 7h, Nelspruit 10h, Durban/Joburg 16h.

Public transportation by road is quite basic : there are small 30 people vans (called chapas) leaving from Maputo everyday to Inhambane (one leaves from Fatima's backpackers in Maputo and goes straight to Tofo), and large buses travel from Maputo to Maxixe (then take a 20mn boat to inhambane).
