Good day Mike

I will be travelling to Mozambique, I would like to know which routes can take to Xai xai or Ponta do oura beach with a Private car. I will be travelling with my wife. How is the safety? Is there a safe place where I can park my car in Maputo, and which other transport can I use to those beaches?

Please advise.

Good day Mokgoba
With a normal car you can get to some places in Ponta do Ouro. Look up www.facebook.com/PontaBeachCamps/

For Xai-Xai I can recommend www.facebook.com/xaixaiecoestate/

Mozambique is usually very safe, but the usual precautions regarding theft from vehicles and looking after your valuables apply.

For a first trip to Mozambique I think you can exclude Maputo, but if you decide to visit then I can recommend www.sommerschieldgh.com/

Go well and enjoy Mozambique.

Thank you for the response, does this mean that I can still visit both Xai Xai and Ponta do Oura with a normal car? The reason I asking this is because people always mention 4x4 cars everytime there is a visit to Mozambique.

if I may ask, about the safety, is this normal crime like breaking windows or extreme crimes like JHB were people are getting hijacked?

Your response will be highly appreciated.

Hi
The crime is usually petty theft with no violence, so certainly less dangerous than many places in South Africa. Without a 4x4 you are very limited as to which lodges you can reach, but you will get to the places that I suggested.
