Zambia left for Maputo on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s penultimate 2015 Africa Cup Group F qualifiers against Mozambique.
Chipolopolo left Lusaka on a chartered flight from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport on a one hour, fifty minute flight after taking off at 09h25.
Coach Honour Janza has travelled with his entire 27-member team.
However, missing from the travelling party was captain and defender Stopilla Sunzu.
Sunzu is still at his base in France after sustaining a hamstring injury while in league action last Friday for his Ligue 2 club Sochaux.
Zambia must beat Mozambique this weekend to mathematically put one foot into the 2015 finals with a game to spare.
Zambia are second on five points, tied with Mozambique who are third with two games left to play.
Group F leaders Cape Verde have already qualified with two games to spare on nine points from four games played.
