Standing in a long line of vehicles for a glimpse of a lion lounging in the long grass is not why you come to the Maputo Special Reserve (MSR) – also known as the Maputo Elephant Reserve. You come here for other reasons.
The MSR is a 4×4 destination that challenges even the most experienced off-road driver, offers every visitor a true African adventure, and rewards you with stunning views of Mozambique’s wilderness.
A mere 90 kilometers away from Maputo city, this reserve possesses an extremely remote character. You travel more than the 90 kilometers to get there either by ferry to Catembe or by road via Boane.
Once you get there, you may drive for hours over tracks of thick sand through thick-leafed coastal forests and never encounter another vehicle until arriving at the campsite at Milibangala.
