The tour departs from Nelspruit or White River or Hazeyview around 6 am and returning to Nelspruit by 4:30 pm. It tour covers major highlights to include: The railway station, the money museum, the fortress, the iron house, the cathedral, Maputo city hall, the central market and the fish market. The Matola raid museum can be added on request.
All these places form part of a long narrative that your knowledgeable guide will be making from the time of pick up to the time of drop off at the end of the day. The tour per se is filled with the history of not only of Mozambique and South Africa, but the southern Africa region as a whole which has been the center of conflict for many years, leading to the independence of Zimbabwe and Namibia and finally, the end of Apartheid in South Africa as well as the end of the civil war in Mozambique.
Visa: Currently, the visa costs about USD50.00 per passport. I do not think there will be a change in price soon. This amount is settled directly at the bordergate with Mozambican authorities.
R2100.00 per person (min. 2)
Included: Transport, the service of a professional driver/guide, bottled water, and all entrance fees.
Excluded: Items of personal nature, Customs and immigration fees, non-South African citizens need VISAS to enter Mozambique (please apply visa before travelling)
Matola Raid Museum
This is an add-on to the Maputo City Tour at an additional fee to be discussed with us before-hand. Interested guests are introduced to an in-depth history of Mozambique. It touches on Portuguese colonialism, Mozambique’s independence, the civil war and how it ended with the signing of the Peace Accord in 1992. The tour also focuses on the life of South African freedom fighters in Mozambique and how their presence in this former Portuguese colony impacted on the lives of ordinary Mozambicans.
