I am planning to go from Meponda to Senga Bay by boat in Feb through Chambo Boat. The lodge told me that they can help arranging boat for taking me from Meponda to Chipole / Makanjira, then I can take a boat from there to Senga Bay. However there is no immigration neither in Meponda nor Senga Bay. He said that I can get visa at Salima in Malawi, but there is no visa exit in Mozambique. I am a bit worry about the visa issue. Did anyone try this before for sharing?

Apologies for the delayed reply.

Visas are still not issued in Meponda or in Metangula. So unfortunately you will have to make alternative route plans. Visas are issued in Cobue and there are boats from there to Likoma Island (which has an immigration office) from where you can catch the Illala ferry.

Go well

Mike

Thanks Mozman. Since I cannot get exit stamp at Meponda, I changed my route to Metangula for taking Chambo ferry to Senga Bay. Hope it works.

My info is that there is no immigration office in Metangula, so where will you get your passport stamped out of Mozambique?

I referred to Philip Briggs' Mozambique guide, which shows that there is immigration post at Metangula, just at the end of the main road to Metangula. The link below is the online resources I can find. I hope it is correct, otherwise I will need to go back to Lichinga and go to Malawi by chapas.

Hi again

OK you should be fine then. Philip is an old friend of mine since school days and Bradt guides are excellent. Safari Ngema!
