About
Maputo Special Reserve was once known has the Elephant Reserve, and it is one of the “Pearls” that Mozambique has to offer. It was created in the 60’s and saw the animal populations decrease during the civil war. This magic place is reborn with a new strength. The animals are coming back, specially the Pachiderms, through eco corridors between South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique. The Reserve, one of the least known places in the World, will give you an unforgettable experience with the huge Landscape variety, where the Indian Ocean marine Ecosystems mix with the typical African plains and even dense forests.

Suddenly having a day without obligations on a business trip in Maputo. What do you do. Fill in a form on Mabeco tours website and receive an answer immediately. I then spend about an hour whatsapping with Antonio with all kind of questions and the deal was done for the next morning at 6.30
Pedro was an excellent and knowledgeable guide who could answer all my questions and who showed me lots and lots of animals. Impala, red duiker, reed- and waterbocks, hippo's, large herds of elephants, wilder beasts, zebras, giraffes and lots of birds. He even found a fingernail big painted reed frog!!
Pedro brought lunch that we ate on the shore of one of the lagoons watching storks, spoonbills and other birds and... hippo's. During the whole trip we saw only a couple of other cars and it felt really pristine.
I have been in Kruger, HluweHluwe, St Lucia and several parks in Botswana and Zimbabwe. This one ranks as one of my best experiences.
Thank you Pedro and Antonio

Antonio our guide was very thoughtful and knowledgeable about Mozambique, the Maputo Special Reserve and all of its various plant and animal species. He was a pleasure to talk to, and knew the park well, leading us around to unique places and showing us much of the park and its wildlife. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone, as the Reserve is quite quiet and unique. I was nice to not run into too many people in the park as it truly felt like untouched wilderness. We loved stopping at the bread shop on the way out and the delicious lunch prepared/brought by Antonio. Take any chance you can get to go on a tour/trip with Antonio!

In case you don't read any of what I took time to write below, the message is simple...book anything and everything with Mabeco. They are fantastic. On a recent trip to Mozambique for work, my wife and I ended up doing three separate tours with the team at Mabeco: the taste of Maputo, Maputo Special Reserve and Kruger Tour. The entire experience from start to finish was tremendous. It started with our planning. We had various questions and the team was incredibly responsive on email. It made all of our planning extremely straightforward and easy. Two of the days we were with Simao - extremely knowledgeable, interesting and was so nice with an amazing attitude. He took a lot of pride in his work and it showed. The other day was the Maputo Special Reserve with Antonio. Interesting, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. Maputo Special Reserve is a completely different experience than Kruger and a must see. We we were truly off the beaten path and Antonio was a great guide. Nothing but good things to say - we would recommend the team for anyone and will surely use them again in the future.
