sunset at Tofo
Some 350kms north of Maputo , Tofo has been a popular haunt for South African backpackers for many years offering a laid-back partyesque atmosphere most especially at Fatima’s Nest backpackers.
For convenience sake i take the tourist shuttle departing Fatima’s Backpackers at 5.30am and costing Mtc600. Without a trailer or roof-rack bags are squished in too. Unbelievably i am in prime position next to the driver, but it is still a long 9 hour journey as even the main highway isn’t sealed all the way with huge swathes of compacted sand in between potholed tarmac.
along Tofo Beach
I take up the offer of 10% off by staying for 5 days in the luxury of an ensuite bungalow perched in the heart of the crescent shaped bay. Unfortunately the party rages on till late into the early hours and I regret not checking into the much quieter resort of Bamboozle or Turtle Cove on neighbouring Tofolina beach.
