Transport from Maputo to Ponta do Ouro

Hello everyone!

I am going to visit Maputo this month (April) I will be in Maputo and I would like to know how to get to Ponta do Ouro. I've heared a new bridge has been built from Maputo to Katembe and that there is no need to go with ferry to Katembe and then take the chapa.

Is the bridge finished and working? If so, what schedule do the chapas have?

I would appreciate all kinds of information on how to get there.

Thankyou everyone!

Hello Anna.

I went to Ponta do Ouro from Maputo on April 2019 and the road is absolutely fine, no need for a 4×4 car. The bridge is already working.

Have a nice trip!

You must be careful with your advice Filipa, yes no 4x4 needed to get TO Ponta d'Ouro, but once there you NEED a 4x4
