I've been meaning to post something for ages to say 'thanks' as I found the Mozguide forum incredibly helpful in preparing for my trip to Mozambique last year. I drove with a friend up the coast from Maputo to Vilanculos via Praia do Bilene, Xai-Xai, Inhambane, etc. We've both traveled extensively in Africa but felt much more prepared for this road trip after reading these posts. We found the roads in Mozambique to be quite good all things considered, and we were very happy with the places we stayed, meals, people, weather, etc. We loved Casa Rex in Vilanculos and would recommend it to anyone - the rooms were beautiful, the grounds lovely, etc. Not at all a backpacker's place but a nice splurge. Thanks again to everyone for all the great advice. Heather

If I may add my titbit at he the end of this coversation..lol.. I have done many trips into Mozambique (both during the high and low seasons) and have to say that generally the South Africans are very well behaved and simply enjoy the wonderful coastline. This is primarily because most of these holidaymakers are family units. There are a few hooligans here and there, but you will always find them.
The negative side is that many SA's treat the place as if it is part of South Africa, especially on the roads.
Talking about racists... I have come accross a few lodge owners that are still completely racist... I simply cannot comprehend beinc of that inclination and living in a "black" country.
The main thing about touring in Mozambique (as withy any other country) is simply to respect their people, istitutions, culture, laws and rules.
