Plan your travels to the fascinating African nation of Mozambique on your next holiday getaway, and book your holiday flights to Tete, a thriving city poised on the scenic banks of the mighty Zambezi River. Tete has seen much infrastructure success over the course of its history, and it is one of the only three locations in the entire country that features a bridge that spans over the Zambezi. Tete boasts an impressive Portuguese lineage, and it was a significant Swahili centre of trade prior to the arrival of the Europeans. At the moment, the city maintains a strong grip on the economic map of the west-central area of the country, and it is by far the largest community on the Zambezi River.

History

Prior to the arrival of the Europeans in the region in the sixteenth century, the city of Tete was a significant Swahili trade centre. When the Portuguese landed on the eastern coast of Africa, tales of the fabulous gold mines available in the area under the patronage of the Munhumutapa lured them here. The year 1531 saw the establishment of Portuguese camps in the area, and Tete had prospered into a prominent hub of trade for gold and ivory by the mid-seventeenth century. The nation acquired its independence in 1974 following the Portuguese Colonial War, and the Peoples Republic of Mozambique was established in 1975.

Getting around

International flights to Tete are served by the Chingozi Airport. The airlines that are currently served include Airlink, LAM Mozambique Airlines, Malawi Airlines, and Mocambique Expresson, which offers flights to Tete from destinations such as Johannesburg, Beira, Maputo, and Lilongwe, among others. The Tete Suspension Bridge that hovers over the mighty Zambezi River was completed in 1973 and is an important link between the north and south, as well as connecting Tete to Zimbabwe and Malawi. Plans are also under way to build a new bridge, which would ease traffic on the current one.

Climate

When you are booking your low cost flights to Tete, or looking for great flight deals to the city, bear in mind that the best time of year to visit is during the months of May-June, when the average daytime temperatures drop to about 23 degrees Celsius, although highs can soar to around 29 degrees. Humidity also tends to be low during these months.

Things to do

Tete boasts a scenic landscape and it provides great hiking opportunities. The views of the river from both sides of the Suspension Bridge are stunning to behold at sunset and sunrise.
