You can reach us by public transport; as long as you’ve readied yourself for an unpredictable journey, full of livestock, regular stops and hot temperatures, this is one of the most authentic ways to carry out your African adventure.
Or you can drive yourself: In Mozambique driving is on the left hand side. Drivers must carry: Identification, driver`s license, copy of car registration paper, border letter, insurance border letter, third party insurance letter and temporary import license, which is also applicable for caravans, boats, etc. Follow the speed limit strictly – in Mozambique they do not allow for a 10km grace over the speedlimit. When stopped by police be polite and provide certified copies of documents requested, it’s a good idea to bring an International driving license. Don’t feel intimidated.
