Good day

With the recent meat ban will smoked and cooked meat also be prohibited? I read on the internet that chicken meat and even eggs are also banned. Is this true?

I would also like to know what the current rates are for entering and travelling through the Maputo Elephant Reserve? What would be the best place to camp in or near the Elephant Reserve and the rates for camping?

We are entering at Kosi Bay on October 2nd and staying in Malongane for 5 nights, but are planning on extending our stay and explore a little bit more north, maybe up to Beline.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards
Cecile

Hi there Cecile

firstly the meat ban seems to be very selectively implemented, but strictly it should apply to all fresh beef and chicken products including dairy and eggs. So canned or processed should be OK, but may also be randomly included in the ban.

Rates for the Maputo Elephant Reserve are entrance Mt400 or R140 pp and per vehicle (once off) and then Mt400 or R140 per person camping, so currently a bit cheaper to pay in Meticais.

Camping is allowed at Ponta Milibangalala, but no proper facilities except a brackish water well.

Getting north of Maputo is currently complicated as only one ferry is operating at Catembe so you have to detour inland via Boane and Matola then use the new ring road around Maputo north to Marracuene and Bilene. From Maputo Reserve to Bilene will be about 6 or 7 hours.

Look up the DriveMoz group on facebook and join. Great people and resources there.

Go well.

Mike
