Discover Tete

Capital of Mozambique’s Tete Province, the city of Tete is situated on the mighty Zambezi River and offers travelers a complete change of pace from the traditional Mozambique beach holiday. Historically a Swahili trade center in the Portuguese colonial era, Tete is now the largest city on the Zambezi and the site of two bridges crossing the river. One of Africa’s most rapidly growing cities, Tete is known as an ideal stopover point for travelers on their way to Zambia or Malawi, as well as an excellent base if you have interest in business as well as pleasure. However, locals love Tete for its coal mining and for producing delicious goat's meat.

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