So intercape doesn't run this route anymore?
What are my other options?

The transfer from Fatima's/Base in Maputo to Tofo is an Chapa or is a local bus something else then a Chapa?
I am getting a bit confused, haha.

Hi again

Yes Intercape has suspended the Maputo to Beira route.
yes a chapa is a minibus or tuck with benches and a cover over on the back. A bus is sometimes known as a Machimbombo. For short trips around town or to close towns, chapas are more regular and a good option. For longer trips (e.g. around 200km or more) then I always go for a bus.

Thanks.
I am going in November so by that time they maybe will be operating again.
Are there other company's who do that route beside the chapas?

Do you maybe have tours which could be nice?
Around 2 weeks in Mozambique, going to Tofo/Vilanculos etc..and starting can be in SA or Mozambique.
