Not much - a hat, costume, sunblock, and that fancy pair of shades...
Your own bath and beach towels.
Generally, casual comfortable clothing is
suitable throughout the year. The most practical items to pack are:
Shorts, T-shirts, Sarongs, Summer dresses etc. Long sleeved shirts and long pants (light) for the evenings. It is important to cover most of your body for protection against mosquitoes.
Mosquito repellents are advised at night especially in the wetter season.
A hat, sunglasses.
Light cotton tops and cotton trousers/shorts in summer.
Long-sleeved blouses/shirts which will protect you from mosquitoes.
Fleece or sweater and a warm jacket for winter evenings.
Swimming costume and towel, snorkel, mask, fins, sun lotion.
Sandals and shoes.
Please note – A Gas Braai is provided as no fires are allowed on site due to the lush vegetation.
Favourite snack items, crisps/chips, chocolate, biltong and other snack food.
Drinking water – Take water as it is quite expensive Mozambique and we advise against drinking the tap water. If you like good wine or a favourite spirit bring it with you as they are expensive in Mozambique (all imported) – but there are two good brands of beer “Dois M and Manica” both light lager style beers.
Portuguese bread rolls can be bought at the local baker on the way to the market. Onions, potatoes, lettuce, tomatoes can all be bought at the local market as well as fruit and veg. Meat is not allowed across the border from South Africa or Swaziland. However, you can buy meat, fish and chicken
in Mozambique. Maputo has a big fish market. Take sliced bread.
A great idea is to join an awesome Facebook group called Drivemoz. Absolutely everything you need to know about Mozambique is on here.
