  • Coming from Gauteng, take the N17 (Springs) Ermelo Highway.
  • Continue on to Piet Retief and then on to Pongola.
  • Go through Pongola and approximately 50 kms take the Jozini turn off. This road takes you up and over the mountain to Jozini. Go through Jozini (mind the speed humps) and on the other side of Jozini keep left. The road will take you over the dam wall.
  • Travel for approx 50 kms (please watch out for pot holes, goats, cows and children) until you reach a t-junction. Turn right. This road takes you to Manguzi (or Kosi Bay). Again watch out for speed humps as there are a number of schools along this road.
  • Once on Manguzi, fill up with fuel, both vehicle and quads (if applicable).
  • Keep going through Manguzi and straight on to the Kosi Bay Border.
  • At the Kosi Bay Border (SA side), have your car papers ready. The passenger can take all the passports in to emmigration (same counter as immigration) and have passports scanned and stamped. Know the vehicle registration number. The driver will do the detail with the SAPS.
  • Proceed through the border on to the Mozambique side. Make sure your passport is stamped.
  • The driver will park and proceed to the office on the left hand side to complete car papers. Have them all with you as well as drivers license as you need to fill in engine number, chassis number etc. The driver must also go to the insurance kiosks and organise third party insurance (compulsory). Cost is R150 for the car and R70 for the trailor.
  • If you are not sure of your vehicles (or yours) capability in sand, let air out of the tyres down to say 1.5 bar. Open the cooler box now and get a ice cold liquid refreshment as your holiday has just started.
  • Proceed through the gate. Do not turn but follow the road straight. The road does sometimes split into 2 or 3 roads. They do all however come back together. Do not turn off this road. It will take you all the way to Ponta Malongane. As a guide, as you get a few kms in, there are power line. If you follow those power lines, this will guide you all the way.
  • When you get into Ponta Malongane, keep left. Stay on the road for a further 5 kms until you get to a sign that says Baleia Azul with an arrow showing right. On that corner is a large thatched building which is a “curio” shop for the local orphanage.
