    We hired a taxi in Maputo and left the hotel at 9 AM for the 2 hours/120 kms drive south, through the Maputo National Park which gave us views of antilopes and giraffes for free. We were back in the capital around 7 PM and paid 200 US dollars in total.

    Ponta do Ouro is a gem with an incredibe beach and a lot of restaurants. We also found the best pistachio ice cream in the world!

    The boutique store is widely stocked with a combo of Indonesian, Indian and local delights - ladies get ready to pull out your credit card.

    The restaurant had the most delicious pancakes and a wonderful breakfast. The cakes looked wonderful but sadly we didn’t get to try them out. Something for next time

    Angie and her team are amazing at what they do! Their knowledge, passion and relationship with the dolphins are unbelievable! The dolphins immediately recognised Angie and her son when we got into the water and gave us the opportunity to see them play and swim close to us. The experience was memorable to say the least. Would definitely recommend it!

    I just spent two months in Ponta do Ouro, doing my dive master at Gozo Azul. I had an epic time! The dive sites are amazing and so is Gozo and all the people working there. They are fun, passionate and professional people who make Gozo a great dive center, a safe and friendly place, with a chilled atmosphere.

    Extremely friendly and helpful owners and staff. We had a wonderful experience. Fantastic Diving. Great locstion! Attached to a nice little cafe where you can grab a bite after diving. A zodiac is used to go to the dive sites, and if the seas are rough, it can be quite challenging but fun!

    We absolutely loved our diving with Back to Basics. Jenny and Rupert are wonderful owners- kind, engaged and keen to share the underwater world off the coast of Ponta. We also dove with Keith, who is an outstanding divemaster. Additionally, all of the staff are so helpful!

    They are very safety conscious- I was coming off some health issues and it was my first dive in two years. They helped me to overcome some of my concerns and get me back in the ocean!

    The diving was beautiful- full of nudibranchs, anemones, clownfish, turtles, groupers, and corals.

    There are a few dive operators in Ponta- but look no further than Back to Basics! We are already planning another trip.

    I was there as a group of 9 mature adults looking for economical accommodation in Ponta. Most staying there seem to be youthful divers and all seemed in Diving Paradise with the facilities and dives made available. Martin the Manager greeted us with his one-in-a-million engaging, warm and enigmatic charm and smile and there aren't enough adjectives to describe his awesomeness. The owners are hands-on and graciously accommodated our request for towels (they seem not to be included). Rooms are rustic and quite warm in summer, and many of us got bitten by mosquitos (I found the nets very stifling). The pool area is quaint and seems to be the hub for everyone to meet and visit next to the bar (lovely cocktails!). The location is unrivaled -- it just doesn't get any better.

    All @ the dolphin center were great, & always helpful.
    From Mike, the skipper to Dudu & Raphi on the boat, and Luis in the office, all were amazing @ their individual jobs, helpful & very friendly. Really making our experience memorable.
    Was a pity we didn't bet to see Wayne this time round, but we;ll see you again next time... Get better soon. :)
    Thanks again Guys!!! 5 thumbs up!!
    Sandy & Andre.

    I am a non-diver (shock horrror!) but not for long. I recently went with a group of diving friends and we used the services of simply Scuba. What a great place. Very organised, and friendly and really willing to help out where possible. And great facilities.
