    A great day in Maputo National Park with scenic views and many animals, as well as a wonderful break on the beach during lunchtime. Very well organized and Calisto was a great guide.

    We did a 2d eSwatini / 2d Kruger Park trip with Tours Maputo, and it was all absolutely incredible. Communication via email was timely and professional. Payment was also easy using PayPal and cash upon arrival.

    Our driver/guide Alfainho was on time, professional, an excellent driver, and helped to navigate all our border crossings. In eSwatini, we had a wonderful time at Hlane and Mlilwane. We really enjoyed the opportunity at Mlilwane to hike and bike amongst the animals. Excellent food and accommodations. At Kruger, we had the most amazing guide (Mr. G) who went above and beyond to show us the "Ridiculous Nine." He was so passionate and knowledgeable and showed us an incredible and unforgettable experience. One of my favorite moments was watching an entire pride of lions (and their cubs) walk right in front of our safari vehicle.

    I highly recommend Tours Maputo and would absolutely tour with them again!

    Great experience all-around. From the time of booking, the communication was clear and responses to questions was quick. The driver to and from Maputo was knowledgeable and professional. The tour guide was informative and responsive to our group. We saw a lot of animals and all around this was a well organized experience and worth the price. I would do this tour again and recommend it to others!

    Excellent communication from first contact, Ludmila was extremely efficient and kind in finding me another tourist to split the cost of the tour with. Tour was superb, Ofiço was a great guide with an obvious passion for his job and for wildlife. The whole day ran like clockwork and the lunch was excellent. I hope to come to Maputo again. Obrigado!!

    We started with a city center tour guided by Herminio, and liked it so much that we later did the Mafalala neighborhood tour with him. He speaks very good English and was knowledgeable about any topic we asked questions about - and we asked a lot of questions, haha. He also found out about some events/activities for us.

    Meanwhile we also did the 1-day Kruger tour with Calisto. He was very knowledgeable about the animals and the park, probably as knowledgeable as guides from Maputo can be, though I feel like the actual park rangers/guides may have more "insider" information. We spoke Portuguese the whole time but I suspect that his English is fine. 1 day of Kruger from Maputo definitely felt too short, especially since there is 2x2h driving, but it is still worth it if that is your only option. Go as early as you can, to enjoy the day and see more animals in the morning (5AM departure max).

    For all 3 tours, the company was flexible and able to arrange the tours for us with very little prior notice. All the information was clear and correct, everyone was very professional and on time, prices were in line with the competition (I guess? We didn't try to lower them much).

    Muito obrigado e até a próxima!

    Maputo National Park is not what I expected but it was a fantastic day. Swimming in the ocean halfway through a game drive was really an incredible experience. Maputo City Tours were very professional, everything ran like clockwork which was impressive considering that the park is very underdeveloped. Some of the sand was very deep and our guide drive very well.
    The disappointing part was that the park does not have many animals but our guide worked so hard to make sure we did finally see elephants.

    Mario’s expertise, respect for local cultures, and ability to connect with people make him a true gem in the guiding community. I recommend Mario to anyone looking to delve deep into the cultural heart of the region. He doesn’t just show you the sights; he helps you experience and understand the soul of the place.

    I did this tour with my boyfriend in February. We had the best experience in the park! The team is super generous and trying hard to show you as much as possible and give you the best service. We did not only experience a great safari tour but also a campsite next to a paradisiacal beach. They also cooked amazing traditional food.

    Ofiço the driver and Thabi the guide were great! I spent an entire day at Kruger Park and definitely recommend it! If you have a day off in Maputo, this is totally worth it.

    We visited Maputo Special Reserve and stayed at Anvil Bay Lodge, which was a great experience. You drive through the safari-park for approximately three hours looking for animals and seeing the fantastic nature. Then you arive at Anvil Bay, a small collection of houses nestled in the forest at the beach. A truly beuatiful place! Throughout our trip the guides where enthusiastic and personal and seemed genuinely interested in us having the best vacation possible.

    I highly recommend Mabeco tours-everything was top notch from our transfer across the border from Mozambique (pick up in Maputo) over the South Africa for our 2 day tour of Kruger. We booked at the last minute and Mabeco was able to accommodate us. Great hotel next to Kruger too!

    Our Mabeco tour driver was waiting for us at the arranged time and he drove us to the entrance to Kruger Park and guided us through border controls from Mozambique to South Africa. Along the way we had a “boxed” breakfast of juice, water, apples, protein bars, and biscuits. We were met at the park entrance by our excellent driver and guide Nico Steyn. The early arrival meant we had a good chance of seeing animals and our expectations were exceeded: we saw 4 of the Big 5 and scores of additional species of bird and beast! A tasty and satisfying lunch was included at the Mugg & Bean, with a spectacular view across an estuarine landscape with giraffe and other animals.We can only say that we unequivocally recommend Mabeco. From online reservations, communication, to service and quality of tour - every step of the way was excellent and exceeded our expectations!
