We travelled through the Kruger and into Mozambique through the Giriyonda Gate when we were told we could buy the 3rd party insurance at the next village. Unfortunately it was Sunday morning by the time we got to the first village and we couldn’t find anywhere to get the insurance. Consequently we ended up going through Maputo on Sunday evening to get the insurance at the border, finding a rather scungy campsite and then driving back through Maputo during the Monday morning rush hour.
We stayed at the Motel Casa Msika over looking the Chicamba Dam – the campsite was in a great location right on the waters edge, but the ablutions were not very good. It also was most definately a 4×4 track to get there.
We had difficulty finding the road to Songo which, by our calculation, was much further on than showed on the map – I’m sure someone had moved it!! We stayed at the Ungezi Tiger Lodge overlooking the Cahora Bassa lake, renting a room but wished we had camped as it was very uncared for – very large holes in the moz nets.
