Shopping tips


  1. 1.There is a ATM to draw money otherwise you will need to bring Rands/Mozambique Meticais.

  2. 2.Most Credit cards are accepted in most of the establishments but check before you try and use them.

  3. 3.Use rands where menu/prices are quoted in Rands and Meticais where quoted otherwise exchange rates might get complicated and you will come off worst in the transaction.

  4. 4.The South African government do NOT allow you to go through the border into SA with wooden carvings, plates etc. Please adhere to this policy to save the stunning Sand Forests from being cut down.

  5. 5.Ideally bring your own charcoal also to save the forest here in the region plus it is much cheaper to bring brickettes from your local supermarket.
