Hello Mike
Can you please tell me about the route from Ponta do Ouro to Maputo Airport, I need to take someone there and then return to Ponta.
Is the road good? Is it tar or gravel or 4x4? How long will it take? Is the bridge at Maputo completed yet or do I take the ferry? What obstacles will I encounter and which route should I take?
Kindly advise
Best regards

Hi Pierre
Welcome to Mozguide.
No the bridge is not yet open and I do not recommend that you use the ferry as it is unreliable and there may be a long queue of vehicles.

The good news is that the road is now all excellent tarmac, except for a few hundred metres as you leave Ponta do Ouro.

So go Ponta do Ouro towards Maputo, but at Bela Vista turn left to Boane and carry on through Matola to Maputo Airport.

This Google map linked below is accurate, but I would assume 3.5 hours for the trip as the traffic from Boane through Matola to the airport can be congested.
