SCUBA DIVING

As a PADI Resort, we can offer more than 30 dive reefs for your viewing pleasure! Ranging from a shallow 8m (for the not so confident) to advanced dives around 50m. You can stay close to home with our closest reef only 300m offshore or join us further afield about 7 Km’s.
Be you an open water/advanced diver, casual/professional photographer, studier of coral/ marine life or just someone who dives for fun, our reefs have something for you!

SNORKELLING

Snorkelling gear is available at the Dive Centre to hire if you don’t have your own.

OCEAN SAFARIS

Unlike many other parts of the world we are very fortunate in that we can still interact with the big marine species on a personal level. Come and join our well informed and friendly facilitators on an ocean safari and have a chance to enjoy an epic experience with whale sharks, bottlenose dolphins, manta rays and humpback whales with babies on their migration. If the conditions are right, you will even get the chance to jump in the water and view these magnificent creatures up close and personal.

FISHING

One of the most popular activities at Malongane with fishing charters available on request.
It is also possible to fish straight off the point and the beach of Malongane.
Malongane is a spear fisherman’s paradise.
A fish cleaning area is provided outside the dive camp – please use it.
Also note that this is where your boat should be warmed up and cleaned.
PLEASE NOTE: NO BOTTOM FISHING IS ALLOWED.
By law a fishing licence is required in Mozambique, please ensure you have it in place before launching.
Also note you need a license when targeting bill fish.

SURFING

The surf tides at Ponta Malongane are great for both surfing and kite surfing.

About Malongane

A spectacular venue, which can only be described as a little gem tucked away between the forest and the ocean.  The resorts run alongside the ocean, one kilometre in length.  This beach-front resort has been around for many years and is loved and very well known by all devoted scuba divers.  It is surrounded by several well-kept reefs.  The resort consists of a famous upper deck bar – with the most spectacular view over the ocean. During the boogy we convert this deck to our second dance floor, showcasing some sexy doef doef.  Camping at this resort is very comfortable as far as camping goes – since the entire resort has an abundance of large shady trees, soft sand – conducive to barefoot walking for your entire stay there and more than enough ablution facilities strategically placed throughout the resort.  A small canteen / shop to buy milk, eggs, ice, drinking water, and their delectable freshly baked local bread “pao”.  A limited amount of accommodation is available at the resort, varying in size and style.  The dive centre forms the “hub” of our event.  The gathering point every day for dive meetings, the place where our workshop presenters meet with all those interested in participating.

Tourism in Mozambique

Few pointers for tourists coming to Mozambique.

1. Make sure that you have all your vehicles original papers handy in a folder .

2. If your car is on HP you must not forget the letter from the company giving you authority to take the vehicles across the border. Please ask them to make it for the maximum period of 30 days even if you are going only for a few days. This will cover you in case of emergencies. Do the same when you fill in the forms at the border. Rather put the maximum period of 30 days for your visit / holiday.

3. Make sure that your passports are in order. They will not allow you to enter if the passport is going to expire within 6 months of entry. The passport should also have at least 2 blank pages available for stamping. When you get your passport back from the border officials make sure that they have all been stamped.

4. 4.Make sure that you stamp your Passport on BOTH sides of the-border, SA and Mozambique-on your arrival and departure.

5. Never ever carry all your money in you wallets. Hide the majority of your money in your luggage.

6. Check on MOZ INFO files for all the items that you require in and on your vehicles.

7. Border procedure is also available under their file section

8. Keep to the speed limits and wait for the 60 up sign. It is the road sign with lines through the 60. This means that you can travel 100km again.

9. There is also under the files the fines that can be issued so make a copy and keep it and refer to it if you get a fine for speeding.

10. Make sure that front and back passengers all wear their seatbelts.

11. No luggage or items on back seat of your vehicles.

12.No alcohol open or closed in the front all should be packed in the boot.

13. MAKE COPIES OF ALL YOUR PAPERS, PASSPORTS AND DRIVERS LICENCE.

14. IMPORTANT Get your third party insurance at the border.

Your third party insurance from SA is not valid in Mozambique. When stopped by the police:

1. REMAIN CALM AND FRIENDLY regardless how upset you are after a few stops by the police

2. Do not remove your seat belt when you are pulled over. Only if you are getting out-of your car, but wait until the policeman saw you wearing it.

3. Remove your sunglasses when you are talking to the police. They like to see your eyes and it is a sign of respect.

4. Try and greet them in Portuguese (Bom dia or Boa tarde). You can then tell them that you do not speak any Portuguese.

5. Hand your papers over if they ask. Normally it is only your driver’s licence and Car Registration (Green Form) and the TIP (temporary import permit)

6. If you are being stopped for speed and you do not agree with the police regarding the speed that is shown to you refer them to your GPS if you have one that records your speed that you travel. If you were speeding take it like a man. Don’t blame the police officer for doing his job.

7. Insist on a written fine and go and pay it at the nearest police office. The only place where you can pay a fine outside of towns is where the police have a permanent stop with an office built on the side of the road. (satellite office)

8. If they ask for money to let you go without paying show them a purse / wallet with a maximum of 100 or 200 meticais and tell them that the other police on the way took all the money you had and what is left is for the road ahead.

ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY AND DRIVE SAFELY.

Getting there

It is rather important that you plan your journey, for the simple reason that the border post at Kosi Bay is not open 24 hours a day, which forms part of the charm, it is a quaint border post that opens at 08h00 in the morning and strictly adheres to closing at 17h00 – be sure not to arrive late, and miss the border. It is important to keep in mind that the first part of your journey is usually without issue, and traveling speed is average.

The chances are very good that you might be met with a lot of mist along the way, especially in the regions of Ermelo and Piet Retief, which by default will slow down your traveling speed, and adding traveling time onto your journey. In the surrounding areas of Jozini, you’re travelling speed gets slowed down due to “villages” that you drive past, in these areas the average traveling speed slows down to 60 km per hour, and you will encounter speed bumps, vast amounts of cattle, goats and lots of pedestrians, most of which are school children. After Pongola your general traveling speed is slower due to speed restrictions and single lane roads.

Make sure not to miss the turning towards Jozini Dam (you need to travel over the dam wall) – if you go wrong here, you are likely to end up in Swaziland which is also nice but will make you miss an entire day of Mozamboogy Fun!

DIRECTIONS FROM JOHANNESBURG TO KOSI BAY BORDER [scenic route]:
The best route is to go along the N 17 to Betha I and Ermelo > onto the N2 past Piet Retief > past Pongola > Turn left just after the Pongolapoort / Jozini Dam off the N2 highway > Drive though the mountain pass and over the Jozini Dam wall > Follow signs to ‘Kozi Bay’ and ‘Border Post’. Stop over at Manguzi, where you can fill up with petrol and get basic supplies.

DIRECTIONS FROM JOHANNESBURG TO PONTI DO DORO DISTANCE:
Distance from Johannesburg to Mozambique border at Ponta do Ouro / Kozi Bay is approx. 630km (5-6 hour journey – all depending on weather, road constructions and conditions etc.)
