You can expect to arrive at the Reserve sometime between 8:30am and 9am this morning, possibly earlier.Driving along the Reserve, there is so much to discover. The Reserve is jam packed with wildlife and ecosystems so rich and extraordinary. Break for lunch between 12pm and 1pm. Today your lunch will be situated along side a beautiful lagoon. Once you have finished lunch, you will continue your drive towards the Reserve gates for your exit.
You'll then head back towards Maputo where your guide will drop you back off at your accommodation. Arrival is approximately 6pm. Delays are something that does sometimes happen, as this time is estimated.
