Hey dude..

I would not reccomend driving.The roads are Sooooo bad and the police so corrupt.Our group got stopped 7 times by the "police" and fined for just about ecerything...eg wearing flip flops! Its ridiculous.PLUS vilanculous is ages from maputo.Get the bus and stop ove rin Inhambane.Its 7 hours from maputo to inhanbane then another 10 up to Vil.

For me, and I took the Oliveras bus, it was 9 1/2 hours from Maputo to Inhambane. If you're thinking of driving/bussing all the way to Vilanculos, all I can say is: don't do it!

I was going to take the bus from Inhambane to Vilanculos, but ended up flying instead: $52 on LAM, one hour flight as opposed to $23 for the bus and 10 hours. Best $29 I ever spent! I don't know the cost of flights from Maputo, but they can't be that much.
