Drive routes              

There are two routs to Inhambane One through the Kruger Park into Mozambique's Limpopo National Park  This route is a great adventure and shorter but it's easy to get lost and time wise takes much longer.

The gate at the southern end of Kruger is very easy and has instant visa processing for international tourists .From there it's an easy six hour trip up Mozambique. You will experience true Mozambique .Once you start to see the huge palmed beaches and little vilages of palm leaf houses with grand churches in the middle under massive palms you are getting close to the paradise of Inhambane and the idyllic Manta coast.

  times. The speed limit on the open road is 100km/h and in towns and villages it is 50 –60km/h.
• Ensure that the two emergency triangles are displayed in a visible place and that the blue and yellow    triangle are stuck to the front and back right hand side of the vehicle.
• Must have two reflector vests in the vehicle (driver’s one must hang over the driver seat) and to be worn in case of breakdowns and accidents.
• If you get a fine don't pay directly to police. Ask them to give you the fine and tell them that you will pay it at the nearest police station.
• Ask for his/her name if he/she is not wearing name badge as it is compulsory for them to wear their name badges.
