Mozambique, Bazaruto, Kruger Park

Hello, we are from Portugal and are planning a trip to Mozambique. Our travel plans include Maputo, Bazaruto, and the Kruger Park. We have recently contacted Go2africa.com, but they are taking a long time to answer. Can anyone help by advising a good travel agency, or any sort of advice on such a trip ? thank you in advance !

Hello,

Sorry to hear that you've had problems getting a response from Go2Africa.

In terms of international flights, it would probably make sense to fly into Joburg. From there you could fly to KMIA (Kruger Mpulanga) and drive into Kruger if you plan on doing a self-drive in the national park, or you could fly direct into the private game reserves.

If your budget allows for it, I'd suggest taking a look at the private game reserves in the Sabi Sands area, which is to the west of Kruger. There's no fence so the animals can wander freely though, you can drive off-road and at night in the private reserves which can make a big difference in your sightings. You'll also have a professional ranger and tracker who will spot animals you'd never have seen on your own.

Mala Mala, Londolozi, and Singita are rated very highly by people on this forum. I've stayed at all three and they all have superb game-viewing but with different emphases. Mala Mala is ideal for the person whose focus is on game-viewing, whereas Londolozi is best for those who want a more rounded bush experience or who really want to see leopards. Singita has great game-viewing but offers non-safari activities as well, and is easily the most luxurious of the three.

After your safari, you can transfer to KMIA and fly direct into Vilanculos and from there it's a relatively quick transfer to most of the lodges in the southern archipelago, such as Benguerra.

I don't believe there is a direct flight to Maputo from KMIA, but you should be able to fly from Vilanculos to Maputo at the end of the trip, and from there back to Joburg.

Cheers,
Julian

Hi again,

Sorry, forgot to add a few more things:

That should be Kruger Mpumalanga Airport (not Mpulanga).

I'd recommend at least three days and ideally four or five for your safari, particularly if you will only be on one camp.

Cheers,
Julian

Hi, We used a South African safari company called 'Outback Africa' for a Cape Town to Victoria Falls trip 2 years ago. It was excellent. Same company does a "Mozambique Safari" that you want want to check out: http://www.outbackafrica.com

Good luck.
