From Maputo

The trip to Ponta do Ouro is very tricky especially in summer when the sand gets very hot and tends to get very tacky especially if you are towing a trailer/boat etc. For those of you who do not have 4x4 transport we have given you a few options on how to get here using public transport and Shapas (Taxi in Mozambique). Select Here for transport from SA cities. This will change dramatically with tar road being completed in the next few months though.
