This tour brings you into the southernmost portion of the expansive East and Southern African country of Mozambique. The city of Maputo is the oldest site of European settlement in Southern Africa. It is also the southern limit of the Arab traders that predated the merchant vessels from Portugal coming around the cape Of Good Hope. For centuries the country was nominally a possession of Portugal. Indeed Portuguese is still widely spoken and is still the language of education and business.

Itinerary for This Tour

Day 1

Historic Capital of Maputo

The Pestana Rovuma Hotel is perfectly situated in the center of Maputo next to the Botanical Gardens and the famous "Iron House" built by Gustav Eiffel, the same man who built the Eiffel Tower. Our guide will take you to visit some points of interest around the city center, the old Portuguese fort, the market square and beautifully ornate colonial-style railway station and the Museum of Natural History as well as interesting monuments and statues that recall colonial rule and the leaders that lead the transition to independence in the 1970s. If you have come from South Africa to get here you will notice a distinct relaxation. There is less crime here and although you still need to be aware of your surroundings and where you go you can afford to be a little less so here in Mozambique. This tour can be added as a continuation or prequel to a Kruger itinerary and can also be continued south into Zululand and Durban from whence you can fly to Cape Town and also available as a 3-day trip.

Day 2

Maputo Elephant Reserve and road South to Ponto Do Ouro Beach resort

From your hotel room, you will have seen as a backdrop to Maputo Harbor the majestic sweep of the newly completed suspension bridge that crosses Maputo Bay. Built by the Chinese this bridge makes access to the coast south of Maputo much easier than in the past. We shall leave our hotel fairly early after breakfast this morning cross this bridge and journey south. Our first stop will be one of Mozambique's wildlife areas the Maputo Elephant Reserve. We shall take a short 2-hour game drive in our vehicle here before proceeding on to our final destination Ponta Do Ouro by early afternoon. We will check in to our idyllic accommodation which is within easy walking distance of the beach.
