Some contact numbers to use in an emergency

Here is a list of contact numbers you can use if you land up in an emergency situation in Mozambique region even on your way to ponta do Ouro region.


Security - The one thing you can be sure of is Ponta do Ouro is safe, even at night when you are out enjoying your evening after a great day in the sun. Of course do not leave your wallet, bags or cell phones lying around especially in season with some suspect tourists around.


Currency - Cash in Rands is highly recommended and remember to leave it in a safe spot. The majority of vendors in Ponta accept Rands but if possible bring Meticais as well, which I would use wherever menus or process are advertised in local currency.


Credit Cards - VISA and Master Card with Visa at most establishments besides the market and dealing with local stores where you will be expected to pay cash and normally in Rands.


ATM - The ATM machine at the local bank in town will accept all major Credit/Debit cards. Draw some Local Meticais here and pay when menu is not in Rands to avoid exchange rate issues.


Electricity - is available at most establishments though in the rainy season can be disrupted for a few hours. Remember to bring torches in case this does happen and any lights you may need for your accommodation needs.


Water - Water generally in Ponta is from boreholes and can be slightly dis-coloured and is advisable not to drink as the sewerage system generally at all establishments and houses are french drains.
