- ABOUT THE SPOT
Four Wheel Driving in Ponta Do Ouro, Maputo, Maputo Mozambique
Ponta Do Ouro is a 4×4 driver’s dream and will surely challenge your 4×4 skills while you face stretches of dirt road ahead of you!! Experience Mozambique in its truest form, by taking on this adventure through dense dune forests, inland flood plains and marshlands. This ultimate adventure requires 5 days of well coordinated navigation on an approximately 400 km/248 mi long route!!
The route starts from Ponta Do Ouro to Macanet with a scenic route through Maputo Elephant Reserve. This is a self drive route, however sometimes you might need help from the locals in regard to alternative routes, especially during the rainy season.
An important thing to bear in mind is to deflate the vehicle’s tyres so as to be able to tackle the roads. There is no need of experience to tackle this route, just willingness and soul power and off you go!!
