High season in Zanzibar runs from late Oct/early November until March. That's a guarantee for no rains, but also pricier accomodation. I went in June, didn't see a drop fall and but half price on practically everything - having even stretches of popular beaches to myself. Just avoid the really rainy months - July through Sept if I'm not mistaken. about 7 years ago
I'm probably late to answer, sorry, but either vodacom or mCel sim cards will allow you to use data on your Iphone - if it doesn't work immediately, just go to a store and they'll easily help you with the configuration. They're no microsim cards in Mozambique as of yet, but many local stores cut them for you - for sure the mobile shop at Polana Shopping can help you out. over 7 years ago
Solo travel in Mozambique, inc.Maputo, fairly seasoned 40y/o male ,$$ camera gear, Good Idea? Bad Idea?
great idea, no problems at all as long as you stick to common sense: keep your valuables close and don't leave anything unattended. i lived in Maputo for 2 years and never had any troubles, even when shooting photos in the middle of the street. Mozambique's countryside actually tends to be safer than Maputo. just beware of pickpockets and you'll be fine. over 7 years ago
Which is the best way to travel from Johannesburg to Mozambique? (we want to visit Kruger park on our way)
If you want to stop at Kruger, the best way is renting a car and selfdriving. The N4 is excellent and easy to drive, you should have no problem. It is not a cheap option though. If you want to cut costs, maybe taking a bus to Nelspruit and renting a car for one or two days for the Kruger will be cheaper. Be sure to stay overnight, the best time to drive around Kruger Park is early in the morning! over 7 years ago
