Maputo Special Reserve - 2 Days

The Maputo Special Reserve, once known as The Elephant Reserve, offers spectacular and vast open areas where elephants, hippos, antelopes, and many more roam freely.

Across Maputo Special Reserve, there are huge water lagoons that provide nourishment to an array of animals, both large and small. The Reserve is one of the greatest experiences of Mozambique, and is packed with adventure amongst thick bush and deep sand.

  • Maputo Special Reserve is a spot that is not particularly well known across the world. For this reason, amongst others, it is an understatement to say that it is a definite hidden gem.


    Day One:

    Today, you can expect our guide to pick you up in the early morning from your accommodation in Maputo. On the way to the reserve, you'll be served a light breakfast. 

    Next we will head towards the ferry that takes us to the South side of Maputo Bay, Catembe. If the wait time at the ferry happens to be too long, we will simply drive around the bay, while enjoying the scenic route. 

    On our way to the Reserve, we will pass the village of Salamanga. Here we get the chance to visit a local bread factory as well as a Hindu temple, which is one of the highlights of the village (optional).

    We can expect to arrive at the Reserve sometime between 8:30am and 9:00am this morning, possibly earlier.

    Driving along the Reserve, there is so much to discover. The Reserve is jam packed with wildlife and ecosystems so rich and extraordinary. 

    We will indeed break for lunch between 12pm and 1pm. Today your lunch will be situated along side a beautiful lagoon. 

    This afternoon you can simply enjoy, take in, and appreciate an unimaginably beautiful sunset over African landscape. While you're soaking in the beauty, our crew will be setting up for a delicious dinner. Our dinner will include traditional African recipes, yum!

    We will cap off an unforgettable day with a warm fire while counting stars, and reminiscing over all of the magnificent things we saw today.

    Day Two:

    Good Morning! This morning you'll awake to a full breakfast made by our camp chef.

    After breakfast, we will do a morning game drive in search of wildlife. Then we will return to camp for another delicious meal.

    After lunch, we will take our time heading towards to Reserve gates, where we will make our way back to Maputo. The drive really allows you to observe the animals as they roam free and take in the natural, rich, and unique landscapes.

    This evening, we can expect to arrive back in Maputo sometime between 6pm and 6:30pm, although delays can occur. Back in Maputo, our guide will drop you back off at your accommodation.
