    Edison did a great job of making sure that we saw all the animals. He knew exactly where to go and was a very safe driver. The park is a must see with elephants, giraffes, hippos, monkeys, and we even saw a huge snake. Definitely worth a visit with a knowledgeable tour guide.

    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!

    Tours Maputo has an excellent program of 4 days (3 nights) that combines the cultural essence of Eswatini with the wonders of Kruger Park.
    In Eswatini we combined a traditional dance show, a game drive in Hlane national park (where we saw hippos, rhinos and elephants) and a night in a traditional but very comfortable lodge.
    In Kruger, of course, things were even better with lions, leopards, giraffes, zebras...
    Ofiço is a very safe driver and a remarkable guide.
    This tour is a must-do.

    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 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!

    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.

    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!

    our safari adventure exceeded all expectations, and much of that success is owed to Mario. His expertise, passion, and warm personality made our journey not just a tour, but a once-in-a-lifetime adventure filled with awe-inspiring moments and unforgettable memories. For anyone considering a safari, I wholeheartedly recommend Mario as a guide. He isn’t just a guide; he’s an ambassador to the wonders of the natural world.

    Joined an one-day tour from Maputo in Mozambique to Hlane Royal National Park in Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland).

    For tours crossing an African border, chances of getting hassles by immigration alike could exist. With the excellent arrangements and proper documentations by Simão, the tour was smooth enough. Simão, as the guide/driver, ensured a safe drive across the gorgeous landscape of Southern Mozambique. He was also knowledgable and knows English, Portuguese (official language of Mozambique) and the local language in Eswatini, eliminating all potential problems. He has a nice character who takes care of his guests much by heart and perfectly accommodates their needs.

    The highlight of this tour was, of course, seeing rhinos! The ranger offered us a chance to walk a bit to somewhere within metres of these endangered animals. The ranger was, on the other hand, very experienced that he didn’t disturb and draw the attention of the rhinos, whilst ensuring our safety all the time. How impressive! We were also lucky enough to see lions, elephants, baboons, giraffes, etc., let alone various beautiful birds, during the safari. This was such an unforgettable experience!

    Besides the safari, Simão also introduced me the culture and local issues of Mozambique and Eswatini. Learnt a lot in only one day!

    Well worth the time and money! Well organized day trip to Kruger at a very reasonable rate. Great support by the staff (igor) to make the trip as smooth as possible, especially at the border. Thanks a lot

    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.
