Welcome to the Ponta do Ouro

Getting to Ponta from the South African side via Kosi BayPonta do Ouro

This is the most popular route and is easily accessable on tar roads from Durban and Joburg (altough quite a long drive), once across the border though it is back to sand tracks so again only 4WD vehicles,

You can park 2 wheel drive cars at the border post for a fee and get a transfer from the border to Ponta.

Once across the Kosi border its still 35km to Ponta VillagePonta do Ouro

On the Mozambique side of the Kosi border the nice tar road instantly turns into several sandy tracks climbing over the sand dunes and down to the sea, It takes a bit of careful driving but if you do get stuck people are always willing to give a push / tow to get you on your way.

For taking your vehicle into Mozambique you need some papersPonta do Ouro Ponta do Ouro Ponta do Ouro Ponta do Ouro

In the vehicle you need to have ywo warning triangles, a refelective vest, and country of origin stickers (as above)
