Moz trip Ponta and higher up - 7 to 9 days required (weekend , week, weekend)

Vilanculos, Bilene, Ponta.

The roads are tarred all the way to Ponta now as I'm sure everyone is aware, same with the roads to Bilene and Vilanculous so not a very challenging 4x4 trip for the vehicles.

Moz trip, would be that the route goes north of Ponta.

Ponta Malongane
Ponta mamoli
Milibangalala
And up to Santa Maria

At least you get to do lots of the traditional Moz sand driving
