Hi,

Does anyone know of anyone who provides this service? I've spoken to a few people but it mostly seems to be from the border to Ponto.

Thanks

Hi there.

Quite often asked this question, so use the search function using key words such as Maputo Ponta transfers etc. There are no regular transfers and I would go to the chappa (shappa) local taxi rank at Katembe across from Maputo, pay MT200 (get two seats for more comfort) and simply travel the way the locals do. Much of the road is now tarred so you should make it in good time. The taxis may go to the border first then detour the 10km to Ponta do Ouro.

Another option is to fly

Go well

Mike

Hi again

Just a few more questions.
What time does your flight land in Maputo?
Where will you be staying in Ponta do Ouro? If you are meeting up with friends, would it not be possible for someone to collect you in Katembe (Catembe). You could take a taxi to the ferry point and then take a boat across the bay to Catembe. the vehicle ferry is currently not operating due to repairs to the quay.

With the new road nearly complete, it is now an hour and a half drive from Ponta do Ouro to Catembe.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice. I am living in Mozambique and am used to getting chappas however I will be meeting someone in Maputo (7am, 25th Dec) and between the two of us we will have a lot of luggage which is why I have decided not to get the ferry and chappa.

Therefore the best option is car hire or a transfer. I have managed to find a return transfer for $260 which is currently the cheapest. This would be cheaper than hiring a car for my time in Ponta so seems like the best way.

Out of interest do you know when the Maputo-Catembe bridge will be open?

Thanks
