Flights link Nampula (IATA: APL) with several destinations in Mozambique and abroad. It's a small airport located 4 kilometers away from town, which could be managed on foot. The way from the airport passes the bus and the train stations. International connections exist to Nairobi (Kenya), Johannesburg(South Africa) and Dar-es-Salam (Tanzania). Domestic connections exist to Maputo, Beira, Pemba, Tete & Lichinga, all through LAM (Mozambique's National Airline). It is difficult to find LAM flight seats on popular e-ticketing websites, best is to book on LAM website http://www.lam.co.mz/.

A daily (except Monday) train departs Cuamba (not far from the Malawi border) for Nampula. The train departs at 05:00 and takes 10-12 hours to reach Nampula.

Minibuses (chapas) from Ilha de Mocambique (Mozambique Island) depart between 03:00 and 05:00 (3-4 hours). Later, you can take a chapa/truck to Monapo, from where regular chapas connect to Nampula. The bus station is located some 5 minutes from the train station, on the way to the airport.

The Copacabana in front of the Tropical Hotel is recommended. Good seafood. Cold beer and wines. Picturesque settings. You'll find your NGO guys/ladies from all over the world there!

Avoid the Girassol hotel restaurant at all costs! The food there is warmed up and it's a festival of soggy fries in glassy sauces.

Despite the previous comment, the Girassol hotel restaurant still is one of the best restaurants in town, with a good breakfast, sunday lunch and dessert buffet. Definetely should not avoid it!

The Sporting is a good place to eat if it's not raining: nice tables set outside and separated by neat little hedges. Great place to watch sport events on a telly.
