Any feedback on this spot ? Have heard it is special.
Thanks in advance for any advice youve got for me :). Myself and husband want to hire a car on Jan 15th and drive up to Mozambique. Have always wanted to visit mozambique and am very excited. We need to be back with the car and to get our flight home on Jan 30th. We need to travel back via Gaborone (where we will need to stay for at least 3-4 days) before going back to Joburg.
Can anyone suggest the best itinerary bearing in mind our time frames? Any worthwile places to stop on way from Joburg to Maputo? Stay time in Maputo- 3 days? Head up to Inhambane and Tofo? Worth going further up to the islands? We would have to come back via the same route to get back to Gabs? Any ideas on itinerary much appreciated
Also any suggestions for best budget car hire company- type of car needed (im guessing we wont really need a 4x4 or am i underestimating the roads?) and the company which will allow us to go in to mozambique and bots and set us up with all the right equipment needed for road checks (if that exists).
Also any advice on getting visas on british passports. Can we get them at the border?
Hi, I'm planning to visit Tofo in early february, but I'm wondering about the weather, because of hurricane risk. What's the chance of bad weather? Is it still good for diving?

I need to go from OR Tambo to Maputo by bus. I would prefer not to go in the city and catch the bus on the station. Does some one know the best company to pick?

Boa tarde a todos,
Estou indo a Maputo em Junho encontrar um amigo que reside lá. Esse meu amigo garante para mim que é possível obter o visto para Moçambique no próprio aeroporto de Maputo, disse que esse ano já recebeu outros hóspedes da Europa que o fizeram sem problema.
A questão é que pela internet não encontro a confirmação dessa informação nem em sites oficiais do governo; o que li é que pela enorme quantidade de estrangeiros, principalmente Portugueses, entrando no país dessa forma e ali permanecendo ilegalmente, o governo não estava mais oferecendo essa facilidade.
Meu problema é que o visto de Moçambique aqui no Brasil só é emitido em Brasília, e eu tenho receio de enviar meu passaporte por correio.
Algum de vocês sabe se ainda é possível obter o visto de chegada no Aeroporto de Maputo? em caso afirmativo, quanto custa?
Agradeço antecipadamente a atenção de todos!
what is happening on the 30th of March 2013

Also how much should the visa at the border be?
8 of us (Australians) had a booking at the The Quiet Corner Guesthouse for New Year in Maputo but the owners of the guesthouse cancelled our booking yesterday, as they have decided to do renovations. Now faced with big problem of finding accommodation. If you have any ideas I would greatly appreciate it...the dates are: Check in: 30/12/2012 Check out: 02/01/2013 Total days = 3
I am arriving beg of Aug in Joburg and we have planned with a rented car (not 4x4) following route: Joburg - Bilene - Inhabane - Gorongosa NP - Bazaruto and back to Kruger NP.
I would be really very happy, if you could inform us about helpful advises, nice camping sizes, diving centers.
Thanks a lot in advance!
We are coming to Africa in October, fly into Joburg on the 6/10/12, we want to drive from Johburg to Maputo. Going thru Kruger and Swaziland. We are having trouble finding a car that we can pick up in Johburg and drop in Maputo, as we have friends there, and won’t be returning back to Johburg.
If you can help in anyway, we would greatly appreciate it.
It'll be my third time in Maputo, but I was always in transit. This time I really want to visit a looot :)
So I thought it could be cool to combine a visit to the Inhaca and Portuguese Islands with a visit to the Elephant reserve. The problem is I cannot find any up to date information online. Can someone help?
Since I'm travelling afterwards to Niassa, I'm not affiliated with any hotel or tour operator. Of course I'd be keen to join any organized tour/ or group to the Elephant reserve. Any tips are more more than welcome :)
I have read shuttles stop running at 10 pm, so I would like to know whether the hotel I have booked could see about transportation from the international airport to the hotel and the cost for doing so, however, I have been trying to send an e-mail to Erboy Hotel, but I can't access it as there are booking sites that control the contact. I would be grateful if I could have some clear information. Thanks
hope you can help. Our plan is to arrive in J'burg, take a safari to Mozambique and stay in Mozambique for another week. Then return to J'burg on our own by bus/plane. Is that possbile within two weeks?
We like to go diving in Mozambique but want to do that on our own as to be flexible and save costs.
Any suggestions are more than welcome.
Could you kindly provide me with the contact details of the Xai Xai branc in Maputo Mozambique. An e-mail address would be preferable.
anyone know if there is a place to rent boards (or even boogie boards) in or near Maputo?
Thanks greatly for any help!!!
