How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please arrange your flight to arrive at Maputo International Airport (MPM) or Durban International Airport (DUR). Transfers are not included in the package, but these may be arranged by Bamboo Room for an extra cost.

Driving directions

Ponta do Ouro's accommodation is best accessed through the Kosi Bay border. The border is approximately 630 kilometers from Jo’burg and 460 kilometers from Durban and is open seven days a week (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). The new tarred road running down from Maputo to Kosi Bay border and linking with Ponta do Ouro is complete.

The Maputo-Catembe suspension bridge is also open now, making the drive down from Maputo much quicker than before (approximately two hours). If you are entering at Ressano Garcia border post, you can also travel to Ponta do Ouro on tar via Boane and Bela Vista. Once you reach the beginning of Ponta do Ouro town where the informal market and Fernando's are on your left, the new tar road ends.

From that point on, the roads are still mainly as they were - potholes and thick sand, for which a 4x4 would be required. A 2x4 SUV with good ground clearance can also access quite a large area of town, please send Bamboo Room an inquiry for details.

They are building a park and ride facility at the end of the tar road but it is not complete yet. Should you not have a suitable car, border transfers can be arranged at 200 ZAR per person, return. Your vehicle can be left at one of the secure border parking lots at a charge of 50 ZAR per day. The parking lots are privately run and secure.

Please allow ample traveling time to get to the Kosi Bay border before it closes as road conditions aren't always good and can slow journey time down considerably. There are often potholes, lots of trucks, and also cattle in the road. Recommended travel time from Jo'burg to the Border is seven to eight hours, HOWEVER, with the occasional road works, the journey can easily take longer.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 60% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 5 days before arrival.
