Mozambique tour June 2019

Unread post by antonvalks » Fri Jan 25, 2019 9:58 am

We are organising a trip to Mozambique from Kruger International on 15 June 2019. We will be staying in Inhambane (3 nights) and Vilanculos (4 Nights) before heading back to South Africa on 22 June. Due to a cancellation we now have availibility for another aircraft (max 2 people) to join us on this trip. This is a trip for those pilots who want to spread their wings a little but keep the wife happy with not too much flying. Anyone interested can contact Anton Valks at oh ate tree sick tree 15885.

Howdy Anton.

Just check with your insurance, Santam has just upped the excess to Mozam to R100k per incident :shock:
Just don't want you getting any nasty surprises closer to your departure date. In terms of flying into Nelspruit, its a great field, though can be a notch intimidating for first timers. Nothing bad at all, just a more exciting approach with the surrounding hills and sloping runway (with a massive lip on the threshold).

Cheers
Shaun

Thanks Shaun, I already had preliminary discussions with Sias who indicated his willingness to assist in requesting a special deal for the trip. I will also talk to Dennis Jankelow to see if we cannot do a deal on the excess for the trip.

Looking forward to landing at Nelspruit and will take proper care. Thanks for the heads up.

Fly safe

Due to some misfortunes of people that had to withdraw we still have availability for this tour. Just to recap:
We get together and overnight at the Rand Lodge in Nelspruit on 14 June.
We depart early morning of 15 June for Kruger International to clear customs.
We refuel and depart for Inhambane in Mozambique.
Here we stay for three nights at Sia Sente Lodge.
On 18 June we depart for Vilanculos where we stay for 4 nights at Villa Pescador (breakfast and transport is included)
On 22 June we depart for Kruger and make own arrangements to return home.
Accommodation costs for the 8 nights mentioned is around R10000 for two people.
Total distance Kruger to Moz and back around 750 miles.
Total cost for the tour (excluding flying cost) is estimated to be around R12500.
Anyone needing more info or who would like to join is requested to contact Anton at Oh ate tree sick tree won 5885.
Please help spread the word. We would give preference to Jabbi's but other aircraft also welcome.
