How to get to Chamfuta Lodge

Chamfuta Lodge offers client transfers from Maputo Marina in Maputo City to Inhaca Island with a maximum of 9 people per trip (weather dependent). On arrival at the Island our staff will take care of logistics with regards to the delivery of your baggage whilst you enjoy the leisurely stroll up the hill. The crossing to Inhaca takes approximately one hour - please contact us for rates and further information.

Alternatively you may catch the Government run ferry (Nyeleti) which runs every day except Tuesday and Thursday or the privately run Vodacom ferry which is 30 minutes quicker than the Nyeleti but only offers crossings on Saturday and Sunday. The Nyeleti leaves from the Catembe Bridge crossing at 7.30am whilst the Vodacom departs from Porto de Pesca (Maputo small fishing harbor) at 8am (crossing times - Nyeleti 2.5 hours / Vodacom 2 hours). Kindly note that due to both Ferry boats having to anchor closer to the main Inhaca port area, a further cost of transport from the beach to the Lodge would be applicable.

Flights in private smaller fixed wing airplanes are also available from the Maputo International Airport (flights take approximately 10 to 15 minutes) - a transport fee would also be charged to collect and deliver clients from the airport.

Should you be arriving at the Maputo International Airport, please make arrangements beforehand so we may organize to collect you from the airport should this be so required.
