Ponta d’Ouro

Ponta means “point” in Portuguese, and the intricate shape of Mozambique’s coast is full of these points, most of them picturesque.However, the region south of Maputo is in a different league.

Ponta is part of a unique habitat system referred to as the Maputaland Coastal Forest Mosaic, which stretches along the humid coast to South Africa and inland to Swaziland. This is a mosaic of habitats, including dry forest, swamp forest, grassland, wetland and estuaries. As a part of this mosaic system, Ponta enjoys a particularly prolific diversity in fauna and flora as well as endemism of up to 10% of the plant species.

All kinds of things live in this environment, from the giant African elephant to the cute Vervet monkeys you’ll see peaking through the evergreen leaves of the coastal forest. Hundreds of bird species as well, including specials such as Palm-nut Vulture, Pink-throated Twinspot, Rosy-throated Longclaw, Southern-banded Snake-eagle, African Broadbill and Plain-backed sunbird.
