5 DRIVE SAFETY TIPS 1.
During the rainy season (November to April) travel by four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended for most road travel outside Maputo.
Don’t drive in areas where there are no demarcated roads – there are still land mines in Mozambique.
Make sure you have with you all necessary documents (driving license, vehicle registration, temporary import papers) and that you carry traffic triangles.
In Mozambique, it is illegal to drive on the beaches. Many resort owners allow driving on the beaches, but besides being illegal (your vehicle may be impounded if you’re caught), it is not very friendly to the environment.
Keep cash with you (US$, ZAR or local currency).
