Airlink connects you to Vilanculos with direct flights from Johannesburg.


Flights from Nelspruit to Vilanculos resume on 2 July 2021. Flights are now open for sale.


The small coastal town of Vilanculos (or Vilankulo) is known for being Mozambique’s most popular destination for visitors, and for good reason. Its palm-fringed beaches and translucent blue waters provide a paradise-like setting, completely cut off from the chaos of life. Though small, Vilanculos has a variety of accommodation ranging from budget to barefoot luxury.


Vilanculos is loved for being the water sports capital of Mozambique. It known for being the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago, a World Wildlife Trust marine reserve and Mozambique's only underwater national park. The pristine coral reefs are teeming with a diversity of tropical fish and turtles, making it a world-class snorkelling and scuba-diving destination without the crowds. Whales are also seasonal visitors to the Archipelago and dolphins can be seen all year round. Other popular water activities include dhow cruises, fishing and kite-surfing.


For your return journey fly back to Johannesburg and travel beyond with Airlink to other key leisure destinations.
