Thanks Nicklas

Hi Nicklas

Visas are easy to get at the border for R170. Your passport must be valid for 6 months from date of exit from Moz.
The closest town in SA to Ponta do Ouro is Kwa Ngwanase (Emanguzi) and I do not know whether there are regular buses from Durban direct. I do know that you can get a bus to Pongola and then a minibus or bus from Pongola to Kwa Ngwanese. A good source of info is the backpackers just outside of KwanNgwanase called Thobeka featured on the bottom LHS of mozguide front page. www.kosi.co.za There are many great places to see en-route such as Lake St Lucia and Kosi Bay itself. You will have a problem finding public transport from Kwa Ngwanase to Ponta do Ouro, but ask Thobekas for advice. I know that it's easy enough to hitch a lift.

Where do you intend to stay in Ponta do Ouro? I do not know of a backpackers there, the Dolphin Encountours is fairly cheap and nice, but ask Thobeka's.

Best wishes

Mike
