It has been a while since Season 1 of The Fishing Freaks. The doldrums of winter felt permanent, there are only so many traces one can make to pass the time. But then Dick and I remember where exactly we live on Earth… A mere 6 hour drive from the rustic Ponta Do Oura, Mozambique.
“Dude, you busy next week? You keen to hit Moz up?” To which Dick responded, “HELL YES!”
And that’s all it really took. Well that and convincing our friend Rat (who has a Landy Defender 110) to come with.
The Fishing Freaks were lucky enough to be invited to stay at Tartaruga Maritima in Ponta Molongane, Mozambique. From Durban we took the N2 north till Hluhluwe, then hang a right onto the R22 and follow that road all the way to Kosi Bay. From the Kosi Border, Ponta Do Oura is a 12km drive through soft beach sand roads. Tartaruga in Ponta Molongane is a further 5kms along the same sand road. 4×4 Is essential!
The Moz Series is a two part Series, part II continues with “The Bet” and Dick’s Day Of Redemption.
