Travel through Mozambique, north to south
« on: January 31, 2017, 06:05:06 pm »
Am looking to travel coastal route down to SA from Tanzania in April, does anyone have any idea of safety traveling through Moz? I understand there were peace talks again, but have they held and are convoys still in operation? Thanks in advance for advice.

Don't know about further north, but from Inhambane all the way south there are no issues... Ping Kenzogs on the forum. He lives in Mozambique

Anything North of Rio Save and you need to be careful.
Convoys were halted in December after "peace talks", but indications are that things are breaking down again.
There have been sporadic "attacks" that the government attribute to Renamo, but this is denied and counter claimed to simply being banditos. Either way, the outcome is unpleasant.
As mentioned by Karambisi, it is quiet down South.
I know some people that live further North and they say all is quiet there, so it would appear that the only possible area of concern is currently in central Mozambique (Dlakhama has his hideout and bases near Gorongosa, so this may well be why).

Short answer is check back closer to the time, if it has kicked off again avoid the place, otherwise do it and you will have an amazing ride!
