How to get to Bama Breeze
Fly direct to the historical village of Inhambane or via Maputo from O.R. Tambo Airport in Johannesburg.

Access by road is pleasant and scenic and the 485km drive from Maputo to Inhambane takes about 6 hours. The roads are tarred and suitable for normal vehicles, for easy access to the lodge and to explore the surrounding area, which is situated in soft beach sand.

From the Komatipoort (Ressano Garcia) border gate it is around a 100km (62 miles) to Maputo.
Upon entering Maputo follow the “Xai Xai” direction boards. Passing through you will encounter a very rough part of Maputo where roads and traffic rules are a concern.
Leaving Maputo behind continue straight on the “EN1”.
Continue through Xai Xai.
At “Lindela” a definite split in the road appears with no indicators – take the right hand side as it leads to Inhambane. (The left goes to Maxixe).
Once you are in Inhambane follow the directions to Tofo.
At Bar Barbalaza continue straight on the tar road. Before the T junction at the end of the road, you will see the Sunset Lodge sign on the left hand side.
