Hello, there used to be (back in 2009) a bus that ran directly from Durban to Maputo via Swaziland. Does anyone know if it still is running and have the contact details for it?
If it isn't, what's the best route using public transportation between the two cities? Thanks.

Hi there and welcome to Mozguide.

I did a search on this forum and found this useful post: NOTE FROM 5 YEARS AGO: www.mozguide.com/index.php/forum-main/po...an-to-maputo?start=6

I got this excellent information from a friend who commented on the DriveMoz Facebook page: NOTE FROM 2 YEARS AGO:
Quote: "There's a bus Service, called Luciano's Luxury coaches, It runs twice a week - to Durban and back of course. I have used it twice from April to June to cart stuff to Moz, as you cannot take much weight (baggage) on the flights to Maputo. I know it leaves on Sundays & Wednesdays from Durban (Departs 0600 from the Pavilion Hotel near the beach front) be there like at 0500. I am not sure how much a ticket will cost you.? Here's some contact numbers: (SA) 27 73 427 8220, 27 72 278 1921, or (Moz) 258 84 880 2100, you might battle to get hold of them, better to go their yourself and try and book - not sure how the tickets work, as mentioned I have only used them to cart goodies for me - Fair deal, pay the driver some bucks and bob's your uncle. Do give some feed back.

Enjoy the journey.

Mike

Hi again and thanks for the useful feedback.

I see now that Cheetah Express are running direct Durban - Maputo - Durban as the road has been upgraded and the new Catembe - Maputo bridge is going to open soon (should have been ready a year ago).

Quote: "Maputo | Durban
Fridays - Sunday
With The New Catembe Bridge Opening , And Thus Linking Mocambique To Kwazulu Natal , It Affords Cheetah Express The Opportunity To Open A New And Exciting Route. For All That Mocambique Offers In The Way Of Beautiful Beaches And Idiylic Restaurants ,Exciting Cultures This Is Defintely A Must For The South African Tourist , Or Our International Visitors Wanting To Visit Our Two Countries By Road .Enough Cannot Be Said About The Coastal Road To Durban With Its Beautifull Views And Towns Along The Way.Once In Durban One Will Realize Why It Is One Of South Africas Major Cities , With Plenty To Occupy Your Time , Wether Shopping Or Lazing On One Of The Many Beaches."
