Mozambique

December 26th, 2004 Comments off

his article countains more info about Mozambique.
A description of what I did, what I like the most and dislike the most.

Description:
I haven’t been to the south, only the center and north of the country. I liked traveling there and I regret that I didn’t spent more time in the north, I was trying to get to Zanzibar for New Year. Try to avoid Tofo Beach around Christmas as all the South Africans kids go there to make party and get pissed out drunk. When I was traveling in the north locals gave me beer, cashew nuts and fruits for free without asking anything in return. It was the first time for me in Africa.

Highlights:

– Very friendly and generous locals in the north

– Tofo Beach (before X-Mas time)

– Northern Mozambique in general

– Ilha de Mozambique

Down Sides:

– Unsafe feeling in Vilankulos (2 ppl I know got mugged in a few days)

– Food always the same : Fried fish or Fried chicken

– Expensive even if it’s one of the poorer country in the region

– The only place, yet, where I got rob

– Very bad road’s conditions in the north

Bonjour et joyeux noel!

Je suis en ce moment a Mocimbao de Praia dans le nord du Mozambique. Probablement un des derniers stop dans ce pays. J’ai rencontre un Francais qui veut egalement etre a Zanzibar pour le 31. Nous allons essaye de trouve un bateau qui va jusqu’a Dar es Salam (juste en face de l’ile de Zanzibar).

Zimbabwe

his article countains more info about Zimbabwe.
A description of what I did, what I like the most and dislike the most.

Description:
I’ll be straight, I dindn’t like that country. I only spent 2 weeks, one waiting for my Mozambique visa in a nice familly in Harare. As soon as I cross the border, in Victoria Falls, I got harrasse by touts trying to sell me lots of things. I have to admit that I only visited big cities but I didn’t feel like exploring. Even Matopo National Park was a disapointement to me.

Highlights:

– Nice train system between major towns

– Not very touristy (except Vic Falls) so locals don’t always try to rip you off

Down Sides:

– Matopo, without a car

– You give your money to Mugabe who’s more a dictator than a president
