Here, the deep sand and thick bush doesn’t slow down the spirit of adventure that the Maputo Special Reserve offers you. Without a big effort, in our specialized vehicle, you will find the vast open areas, where Elephants refresh themselves with long mud baths.

Huge fresh water lagoons nourish a great variety of birds, host the laziness of the Hippos and complete the scenery for the jumps and runs of several Antelope Species.

Our guide will pick you up early morning at your accommodation (06.30 AM). While crossing the brand new Maputo – Catembe bridge, you can enjoy a Light Breakfast, on-board of our vehicle.

On our way to the Reserve we will pass by the Salamanga Hindu Temple and stop at a local bread factory.

Inside the Reserve you will discover the unique aspects of the wild and its magnificent ecosystems filled with rich and extraordinary Biomes. There will be a break for lunch in the wild.

After lunch we will drive towards the Reserve gates and we should be back in Maputo around 4.30 Pm, where our guide will leave you at your accommodation.
