I'm planning to drive from Kruger Park to Maputo on 22nd November, spend 1 or 2 nights there, then drive from there down to Swaziland, spend another couple of nights there, then drive down to Durban -with another night somewhere on the way, to catch a flight on 27th November. I am aware it is a very short time to visit these places, but I cannot fit more time in my schedule.
Could you recommend somewhere to stay in Maputo? Is it worth to visit the city, or is it better to spend the day on the beach? I've read that the beach at Maputo is quite polluted and not very recommended.
I have checked there are about 225km from Nelsprut to Maputo, and around 250km from Maputo to Mbabane. One should cover these distances in about 3 hours in normal roads. Has anybody travelled there, so to give some advice about the fact times?
I'm also aware of the delays at the border with SouthAfrica. Has anybody been bribed? How much would one normally have to pay?
As far as Swaziland, I have read it is quite safe for travellers.
