Activities and Facilities at Wakene Beach Estate
The nearby villages, offer wonderful opportunity to interact with the local Mozambican Shangaan population who all speak both their native tongue and Portuguese. They are peaceful, friendly folk that offer a variety of traditionally rustic bars (baraka’s) where tourists and locals mingle. Some trade in Mozambique curios and souvenirs and brightly coloured sarongs, while others trade firewood and charcoal. There are stores with basic provisions and food supplies including bottled water and ice.
In addition, a visit to the local fresh food market offers a selection of freshly baked breads and rolls (Pau) basic veggies and salad ingredients, cigarettes, beers, cooldrinks, cashew nuts and coconuts.
A must try is the strong fresh cloves of garlic and the speciality is the Peri Peri garlic sauce.
There is a selection of various restaurants offering traditional seafood and Portuguese cooked chicken with others selling Prego rolls, Pizzas and burgers. Everything is freshly cooked while you wait.
Watch out for the traditional tourist drink known as R&R, which is just about an even mix of Mozambique dark Rum and fizzy Raspberry soft drink. Easy drinking with lots of ice on a hot day, but be careful when you stand up after a few of these.
Fresh seafood, caught that morning in Maputo bay, is available from informal traders opposite the BCI Bank in Ponta do Oura with game fish and a wonderful selection of various good quality red meats and chicken available behind the traders, in the centre arcade at Luka’s Butchery.
For the more adventurous, Wakene is centrally situated to explore the unspoilt rock pools of Fredrico’s Bay 2km North of Wakene. Snorkelling is a must with a variety of marine life and amazing corals between one and two meters deep.
There are 24 reefs off Malongane and boat based snorkelling and scuba diving offer a spectacular variety of marine life from Manta and Whale Sharks to rare corals and nudibranchs.
The ocean also offers a magnificent annual migration of the Humpback Whales going North from June and returning by the end of October with their calves on the long trip back to their feeding grounds off the Antarctic Coast.
In addition the resident dolphins, which are here all year round, add to the visual entertainment with their antics in the waves behind the back line. There are numerous well run charters who offer informative boat based excursions and the opportunity to swim and interact with these magnificent and intelligent creatures. The Maputo Elephant Reserve is 26km north of Wakene, now restricted by two electric strands, the elephants were regular visitors to Malongane village.
This 50 000 hectare reserve has approximately 200 elephants. Once the Futi Corridor is fenced, linking Tembe Elephant Park in South Africa to The Maputo Reserve, the elephants will be able to follow their traditional migration route along The Rio Futi which was cut off during the civil war in the 1980’s.
A day trip with a guide is well worth the visit through the reserve with its myriad of fresh water lakes, floodplains, woodlands and forested dunes sweeping down to unspoilt beaches. Once a year, between November to January the leather back and Logger head turtles make their appearance on the Wakene
Beach to lay their eggs above the high tide water mark at night. 59 days later these eggs hatch. Up till early march you may find hundreds of tiny turtles (each the size of a match box) making their way down to the beach all the while dodging crabs only to be confronted by Giant Ignobilis kingfish that have arrived at the end of December to March to feast on these little swimmers.
There are fishing boat charters that offer the opportunity to target
pelagic game fish species such as Wahoo, Dorado, Tuna and Couta or for
the more adventurous, the billfish including sailfish, black and blue
