Machangulo Beach Lodge location, directions, satelite map
Machangulo Beach Lodge’s distinctive atmosphere stems from its unique location. Southern Mozambique’s sparsely populated coastline and brilliant natural beauty hosts the Maputo Elephant Reserve, home to over 400 elephants, hippo’s, crocodiles and some antelope. While some believe the journey to be half the fun, others prefer the destination. Here are the different ways to get to Machangulo Beach Lodge:
By car from Johannesburg
Take the N12 EAST (N4 if you’re in Pretoria).
Head toward Witbank, where the two highways will converge (now called the N4).
Continue East on the N4 through Nelspruit all the way to the Komatipoort/Lebombo border post. Remember to have your passports and car papers ready (recent registration if it’s your own vehicle or permission letter from rental company).
Once you are through the 2 posts continue on the highway, now called the EN4, all the way into Maputo.
As you enter Maputo(first suburb is called Matola) continue straight in with the EN4 until you reach the EN2 at a major traffic light.
Turn left and continue into Maputo through the toll gate until you reach a big traffic circle, turn right (you entered at 6O’Clock, exit at 3O’Clock).
Follow the main(Avenida 25 de setenbro) road all the way through the city until you pass the KFC on you left, just pass the circle, which you go straight over, turn right into Maputo Marina(Blue and white buildings).
Here our friendly staff will assist you and your luggage onto the boat and your journey through Maputo Bay should take around an hour.
