A handy compilation of travel information which you will need when visiting Mozambique.

We've compiled a handy checklist of things to bring to ensure that your holiday at Zona Braza Resort is a fabulous carefree and memorable one:

  • All groceries and condiments you will be using for self catering
  • It's wise to bring along meat, cheese, butter and luxury items
  • Dishwashing liquid, cleansing and cleaning material, dishcloths and sponges
  • Table cloths
  • BBQ: bring along your own braai grid, firelighters and matches. You'll need matches or a lighter for your gas stove
  • Bath and beach towels
  • Mosquito repellant and insect repellant spray

Visitors to Mozambique should be aware that it is difficult to obtain large amounts of cash in Maputo with a credit, debit or cash card. There are various ATM’s from various banks that allow for removal of local currency only. Cashing a traveler’s cheque is expensive and facilities are not available everywhere in the Country.

It is not possible to obtain fuel from filling stations with any card at all. It should also be noted that foreign currency is not freely available, as it is imported as required and as per law all negotiations/payments should be done in the local currency.
