Take the EN1 (the main road through Mozambique) and follow it until you get to the junction just south of Maxixe at Lindela. The road is mostly good condition tarmac although some areas are affected by potholes and not well maintained. Once at the junction, follow the road all the way to Inhambane City.

Once through Inhambane, another tarmac road (the EN259) follows the coast all the way to Tofo. All roads are clearly sign-posted. You can ask any of the friendly locals and they will direct you to Tofo, should have any difficulty. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is not necessary as the tar road runs all the way down to the beach.

However, particular caution is advised on the roads connecting the EN1 to Inhambane and Tofo, especially at night, due to a very uneven road surface and potholes.
