    The park is beautiful, right on the beach. The roads are poor so don't expect a smooth ride. Maputo City Tours gave a lovely tour, a real adventure

    Great experience! We did a 2 days kruger safari from Maputo experience and everything was very well organised.
    The pick up in Maputo, the border burocracies, the articulation with kruger staff and the accommodation were all very well managed and everything was super confortable and smooth.
    Thanks for the great and relaxing experience.

    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!

    I had a wonderful time visiting the Maputo National Park with expert guide Calisto. It was my first time seeing African animals in their natural habitat, and Calisto knew where to find them, then gave me time to wonder and photograph them. He had a detailed knowledge of the park, where to find animals and how to manage the schedule, including a lunch stop on the spectacular Indian Ocean.

    Calisto put me at ease as a solo female traveller, both giving me space and interesting conversation, as well as filling me in on the animals we were seeing and background information about them. He was punctual to the schedule from pickup to dropping me off at the hotel, drove extremely well (the national park roads are extreme 4x4 territory) and was universally courteous and friendly to people we encountered.

    All in all a great first time reserve tour and I will definitely be doing this again.

    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.

    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!
