Once upon a time in 1994, Ponta do Ouro Reservations was founded by the owners of Motel do Mar Beach Resort, who restored the facility after the Mozambican civil war. The company grew to include an increasing number of establishments in Southern Mozambique as the area expanded into the exciting destination that it is today.
With our clientele being largely self-driven and from South Africa, we recognised a need for accommodation En Route as well as an interest in combining beach and bush experiences into one trip. Thus, in support of our belief that travel is not merely a destination but rather a journey to be explored, En Route Travel was born. We initially focused mainly on the breathtaking Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal area also known as Maputaland, Zululand or the Elephant Coast; as well as the Malelane and Komatipoort regions near to Ressano Garcia border post. Our country is a spectacular playground for road trips and therefore we progressed to specialise in En Route stop overs along all the major South African "N" routes. Once we started to explore the jewels that South Africa had on offer we couldn't stop and so... we are excited that En Route Travel is still expanding to include many destinations country wide. Whether your interest lies in game-viewing, bird-watching, fishing, scuba-diving or simply a bit of rest and relaxation we certainly have a place for you to visit.
