Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need for travelling across the border?
Bring registration books or documents, as they are requested upon arrival at the border post. If the driver is not the registered owner of the vehicle, then a vehicle authorisation letter is required. Please note, in Mozambique vehicles drive on the left hand side of the road and by law all vehicles are to have two reflective triangles and a reflective vest in the case of an emergency. Don’t ever give your drivers license to a traffic official.
You will also need to take out third party insurance, the DriveMoz Facebook Group is very helpful with all this type of information.
Where can I buy my daily groceries?
Loja De Tashi is an amenities shop approximately 2km up the road from Cumbini, as you exit the resort turn right and follow the road down the big sandy hill to the garage. Loja De Tashi will be across the road on the right. It has almost everything you need, from toothpaste to meat to drinks, freshly baked bread and rolls daily.
What activities can we do in the area?
There are so many different activities to enjoy with in the bay, have a look at Our Favourite Activities.
Personally, we love lying on the beach all day, enjoying the sand and sea breeze. Becareful though, the sun here is very strong, so wear sunblock.
