Ponta Info - Bem Vindo! Welcome to

Ponta do Ouro, Southern Mozambique


Ponta, an extremely bio-diverse ecosystem welcomes you to paradise!

Ponta do Ouro has been identified by scientists around the world as being one of the most incredibly bio-diverse ecosystems in the world. It has the second most bio-diverse floral kingdom in Africa after Cape Town’s Fynbos region but we are sure when you look at the overall big picture, by far one of the most bio-diverse gems left in the world that can offer you a variety of activities to view this spectacular display, whether you are on land or at sea.

We have setup this website for you to make the most of your stay while here in Ponta do Ouro with a variety of activities on your doorstep, accommodation, eating out, directions on getting here and border related passport issues. For those of you spending longer periods studying the region we have given you resource links to understand the region and fast track your understanding of this dynamic system wether or not you are interested in Whales, Whale sharks, Mantas, Dolphin, Sharks or any of the 107 Nudibranch species we have on our stunning coral reefs to the few remaining Coastal Elephant in the Maputo Special Reserve.

Ponta is also well know for hosting music festivals and has a vibrant night life to entertain you to the early morning hours when you are due to start your daily schedule. There is so much to do in such a small region and what really makes it incredible is you can walk to each activity and make use of a taxi service to get you here from Maputo or the South African Farazela border post.

We have also included a few information tabs to prepare yourself on  what is available here from shopping to leisure including courses and volunteer programs you can attend while here. You will soon be able to attend lectures on the research being done in the region on Shark, Dolphin, Coral reefs and Conservation efforts on the Futi Corridor, which will join the Tembe Elephant reserve to the Maputo Special Reserve allowing the free roaming coastal elephant to meet up once again after being separated for many years.
