"Fantastic trip despite the airlines!"

I visited Mozambique and 1 other country between 23 Aug 2019 and 9 Sep 2019
"I have already covered airline problems, we also had a very unfriendly and unprofessional experience with immigration at Nampula.
As advised we were prepared to get our visas at the airport. We were met on the run way by a shouting official, eventually determined he wanted our visa. He took our passports while we waited for the luggage which did not appear.

In the visa office we presented the visa forms provided by yourselves which were rejected, with a lot of shouting, and new cards were presented to us to fill in. The official asked my husband what we were doing in Mozambique, replying ‘tourist’ he shouted that we could have our visas after everyone else. After issuing visas to at least 2 other people who arrived after us we got our visas. Full finger prints were taken, photographs taken, our money was checked for fakes! We definitely got the feeling we were being treated as badly and as slowly as possible.

Another point to make is that the immigration clerks who were issuing the visas were very incompetent, almost ruining my husbands passport. Can I advise that anyone's travelling via Nampula does not try to get their visas at the airport. If they don’t live near London then get a visa company to do it for them and pay extra.

After all this drama we then had the 4 hour journey to Nuarro all in the dark.

Another point is that we were expecting to pay $30 each exit from Mozambique. No money was requested.

Another note regarding visas. We had not booked our return flights on the same ticket so needed to retrieve our luggage in Nairobi and re-enter the airport. This was easily done at the visa desk, a transit visa was issued for $20 each." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 7 on a Mozambique holiday

"Southern Africa"

I visited Botswana and 3 other countries between 28 Apr 2016 and 15 May 2016
"All of expert Africa's arrangements went to plan very smoothly. Really enjoyed the trip but think we underestimated the amount of travelling we'd undertaken. Maybe 3 countries was one too many!

Zambia and Botswana in particular were great countries and loved getting to know some of the people we met. Had picked camps with a good chance of lion activity but were not lucky in that regard. Did feel at Vumbura that other jeeps seemed to be having a better experience and that our driver - who was lovely - was low down in the pecking order and perhaps being directed to the quieter areas of the reserve.

Didn't help that for the last 3 or 4 drives we had a community overseer on our trips who didn't speak to us really and it cast a bit of an atmosphere. We actually preferred Machaba which was not what I was expecting! Have passed your brochure to my boss as I can't fault your end of things."

"My Nov 2015 trip"

I visited Mozambique between 3 Nov 2015 and 17 Nov 2015
"We loved the country and felt safer there than in any other African country we have been to. A great holiday - thanks

Ellie was very helpful on the outward journey when our BA flight was delayed and we may have had to change flight. Luckily in the end we just about made our connection thanks to SAA's flexible check in timings!" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 13 on a Mozambique holiday

"Fantastic holiday"

I visited Mozambique and 1 other country between 29 Sep 2013 and 12 Oct 2013
"We had an amazing trip and everything went smoothly, including airport transfers etc. The car journey to and from Nuarro was longer than we thought and the layover in Nairobi was unbearable, but clearly unavoidable!" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Mozambique holiday

"New country - great trip"

I visited Mozambique between 14 Sep 2012 and 28 Sep 2012
"As we had not been to Mozambique before had no prior expectations. However it is clearly on the up touristically especially in respect beach holidays.

Safari part was good for us since it had a "freshness" that has disappeared in some other destinations as safaris have become more "packaged" and up market. People very friendly and staff performance level good" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 4 on a Mozambique holiday
