Just 30 minutes’ drive on brand-new tar takes you from Kosi Bay border to Maputo Special Reserve, or Maputo Elephant Reserve as many call it. Apart from the elephants, adventurous travellers will find plenty of reasons to visit. By Romi Boom
After surviving Maputo’s overwhelming hustle and a hectic journey up the coast to Nampula, Tracks4Africa traveller Lizette Swart enjoyed a restful two days on Ilha de Mozambique before tackling the journey north to Ibo Island. On the second leg of her enthralling journey, she discovered a glorious sunset at Wimbi Beach and a beautiful white beach north of Xai-Xai.
After three weeks on the road, Mozambique still enthrals around every bustling corner. Although traversing this remarkable country with its long white beaches and rich history may pose some challenges, a self-drive trip will not disappoint. By Lizette Swart
