Mozambique Epic 3 Week Surf Tour
Durban, Mozambique, Maputo & Swaziland Adventure Tour
Umhlanga Rocks: (Transit)
Umhlanga has one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. Situated on the east coast of South Africa just north of the Durban, Umhlanga faces the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
The golden beaches stretch northwards for more than 200 kilometers. Due to limited time you will be based in Umghlanga during transits, only a short drive to King Shaka International Airport.
Depart early morning on the 16th November to Ponta do Ouro, experience some off road 4x4 driving along the sandy tracks to the small village of Ponta do Ouro. After Ponta we depart mid morning and drive through the Elephant reserve to Maputo, this is an adventure in itself, 4x4 country travelling on sand roads and tiny villages connect the way. As you round the bend at Namahacha the Maputo skyline comes into view across the bay, a surreal sight after driving through the bush. We then take the ferry (if you can call it that) a short hop across the channel to Maputo city. A fascinating coastal city with colourful markets, historic building and a mix of Portuguese, Arabic and African cultures.
After a little sight seeing and lunch we will head out of Maputo to a transit camp for the night.
Early next day we depart for a days drive to Inhambane province and the tiny fishing village of Tofo. You will begin to take in the real sights and sounds along the way. We will arrive at camp in the late afternoon just in time for a surf in tropical warm waters.

In Swaziland you will:
You will experience music and dance as part of the Swazi culture. The dance is highly strenuous: teams of dancers step forward in turn to perform a barefoot high-kicking and stomping, while their companions behind beat drums, chant and sing, be prepared to be overwhelmed by this amazing experience.

Ultimately Swaziland is a perfect destination to visit. You can relax and enjoy the wonders of Africa, the people, culture relax around the swimming pool and also visit the animal rehabilitation centre right in the camp.
