Hippo at lagoon on 3 day safari to Maputo special reserve with Mabeco tours

The surfer expectation is to try waves that he never surfed before. The surfer expectation is to feel a pure, original and authentic lifestyle. These expectations are easy to correspond to, when we are in such a huge coastal Country such as Mozambique. These waves are Worldwide recognized but only known locally. Wake up in the morning, take a few steps and surf in the Indian Ocean is a very pure feeling; Sleep in tents with beds and have a Chef that prepares all the meals is a very original feeling; Being able to do all this in a place where we are are just a few minutes of observing wild animals is a very authentic feeling. For us, the surfer expectations are to be exceeded.
