Southern Mozambique, specifically Ponto do Ouro, is the host to this truly unique and memorable experience. That means a passport is required to discover swimming with the dolphins in Mozambique. Non South African passport holders need a visa which can be obtained at the border.

Sightings are never guaranteed as the dolphins are, in fact, wild animals. However, with the right people the chance of seeing these majestic creatures is about 80%. Whale Sharks can also be spotted during the summer months and guests can enjoy swimming with these gentle giants.

Reconstruction of the fishing port in Beira, in the central province of Sofala, will start within days after donors gave the green light to the project, the Noticias newspaper reported.

The donors, the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) and the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), have authorized use of available funds, despite these not covering the entire cost of the port rebuilding project.

An overseas study indicated that complete rebuilding of the Beira fishing port would cost US$ 20 million. But after a tender was launched for the project it was concluded that the cost would be double this amount ‚Äď over US$ 40 million.

In this situation the Maputo government had to enter new negotiations with donors and its was agreed that funds will be used to rebuild only a part of the fishing dock, Fisheries Minister Cadmiel Muthemba told Noticias.

The second phase of the Beira project involves rebuilding of part of the dock for deep-sea fishing and other complementary construction. Maputo’s ministry of fisheries says it will continue to seek funds for the entire port modernization scheme.

The minister said work on the first stage of the Beira port rebuilding would be concluded mid-2009.

I have travelled the length and breath of Mozambique, mainly in my quest for deep-sea fishing havens. Mention must be made of the Mozambique fishing holiday Lodge,  Macuacuane Lodge. It is absolutely the perfect spot for remote tranquillity with the beautiful panoramic sea views and beaches. You can access 4 uninhabited islands from the Lodge with medium sized fishing boats where you encounter uncharted dive sites and fishing spots. A container ship fell prey to the reef and has become a Fish aggregating device and is a must see. The fishing is the best I have encountered in Mozambique. Macuacuane Lodge has very comfortable chalets all built from hardwood and great attention to detail and comfortable facilities. The greatest asset is the double story bar that captures the sea breeze and really adds character to the camp.  Perfect!!!
