- The whole trip was incredible! The boat ride over was smooth and comfortable, our stay at Kanimambo Lodge was five star! Our hike with Angelo through the mangroves to the Lighthouse was fun. Our snorkelling at Santa Maria was breathtaking with all the fish, a turtle and such pristine and clear waters. The Biologica was a little run down but the curator, Mr Queri Hobjuane , was extremely friendly and well versed in all island information. The island is a must-visit if you are in, or even near, Mozambique...Written 30 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Interesting collection but the salesmen or so desperate thus pushy that we didn't find a single moment to enjoy it, watch it, let alone buy something.

- The Maputo Central Train Station, or CFM (Caminhos de Ferro de Moçambique) as written under the clock on the 51 m high central dome of the station, is quite possibly the most beautiful monument in Maputo and a fine example of colonial era architecture in Africa. The platforms are also decorated and well maintained. On the platform, which is on the left as you enter, there was a long line of large photos of stations with some resemblance built in the rest of the world. Definitely worth a visit and gives the opportunity to take interesting photos.Written 1 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Left Maputo crossing the Maputo-Katembe bridge, we continued south towards Ponta do Ouro. About 80 km south of Maputo it is clearly indicated that the road enters the Maputo Special Reserve and about 500m later there is a small unpaved road on the left leading to the Futi Gate. Here, after paying the entrance, you can access the reserve with your car but only if you have a 4WD. The tracks are narrow but not particularly demanding even if in some places the presence of sand justifies the need for 4WD. The cars in the park were very few and we hardly met other tourists. Proceeding in the park you meet different environments ranging from dense forest, grasslands, wetlands and small lakes. In the dense forest we saw small antelopes, such as red forest duiker (Cephalophus natalensis) and suni (Nesotragus moschatus) very difficult to photograph and some elephants. Reaching the vast areas of grasslands, we saw countless impalas, as well as a few dozen of blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) and Burchell's zebra (Equus quagga). In the wetlands we met an impressive herd of elephants, many of them young specimens, which slowly approached us to cross the road and disappear into the forest. Proceeding further along the extensive wetlands we encountered small groups and solitary specimens of elephants, waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus) e common warthog (Phacochoerus africanus). The fact that some of the animals moved away when we were still some distance away made us suspect that poaching is still a problem in this reserve, in which there are still villages. However, the fauna is rich and, the numerous young specimens, tell us in good health and on the increase and therefore we must certainly praise this work of recovery of the environment and reintroduction of animals. In Lagoa Chingute we found hippos, but we couldn't see crocodiles due to the thick reeds on the shore of this small lake. Finally, we saw several giraffes not far from the gate, while there were numerous birds that we were able to observe during the visit. We spent a pleasant day in the park during which we saw and photographed many animals. What the park is missing is predators with a dramatically failed first attempt to reintroduce the cheetah. However, this can be an interesting visit for those who are in Maputo and want to dedicate a day to nature.Written 22 September 2022
- It was interesting to see the old cannons and walk around inside but it would have been better if there were a guided tour on giving some more facts and history. The exhibits inside were also good.Written 30 September 2022
- Hendy gave us a wonderful tour of the city. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Maputo, Mozambique and actually the whole of southern Africa. We definitely learned a lot.
His English is fluent and storytelling clear, which helped us to really understand the stories, and ask questions which he was always happy to answer.
It's great that Hendy not only tells his own stories, but is also interested in the cultures and personal stories of the guests. We really enjoyed the conversations on both our cultures and histories.
I definitely recommend booking this tour when visiting Maputo!Written 21 November 2022
- I had the pleasure of being guided by Simão Langa of Mabeco Tours on a recent two week tour of Mozambique.
Simão did a great job with a demanding group of seven photographers.. Simão was an excellent and professional ambassador for both Mabeco Tours and Mozambique. He was never impatient, always prompt and constantly cheerful. His enthusiasm and passion for Mozambique and his career was contagious! He is a careful and cautious driver which I appreciated.
I highly recommend Simão and Mabeco Tours.Written 30 September 2022
- Amazing tour that should be on everyone’s itinerary in Maputo, showing you a side of the city you wouldn’t otherwise have access to. Our guide, Ana, grew up in Mafalala and was very knowledgeable about this neighbourhood that has been so central in the history of the country.Written 28 October 2022
- I did my first safari tour to Maputo NP with Ofiço as my guide. I saw all the highlighted-mammals! It was great and amazing experience for first timer safari doer 🤗.Written 16 November 2022
- Sheldon was a great guide for the Top Ten tour. I found downtown Maputo very beautiful. Recommend doing the tour on a sunny Sunday morning when the town is calm with very little traffic. You can also see services going on at the Cathedral where you start out. There are lots of interesting things to see, my favourite being the central market where we tried local fruits, the railway station, and the botanical gardens, which has trees from different Portuguese-speaking countries and a lot of fruit bats.Written 16 February 2020
