Favorite thing: All nationalities with the exception of South African citizens visiting Mozambique require a visa. The visa can be obtained at arrival at the airport or at any border post. The process takes about 10 minutes and one has to fill in two forms hand the fee around USD 20 and then gets the visa issued on the spot. However bear in mind that during peak time into Mozambique, and specially during South African school vacation thousands of South Africans cross the border and delays may then be experienced. *Update 11/10/2005 South African passport holders no longer require visas for Mozambique*
There is really little in the way of facilities in this fishing village. There are some restaurants. There are some really expensive resorts about 2 kms north of the village if you really need luxary. But my favorite thing to do here was to buy some firewood, potatoes, onions, cheese, and spices. The market is close-by and although limited has enough for some hardy meals.
Buy some aluminum foil and wrap up your potatoes and onions and what ever else you have and throw right on the fire.
I had some great meals sitting up on those dunes at night over looking the sea with my new friends around the camp fire telling stories.
Fondest memory: This place was so tranquil. There were no motorboats or cars. Things were simple and relaxed. You could just sit and watch the day pass as the locals went about there lives on the beach and in the sea. The people are friendly and have nice smiles. They say hi to you in the street (actually bomdia) and look you in the eye. Not much has changed here in a couple hundred years.
