Poelela lake is located in southern Mozambique. The road to the lake is called Lagoa Poelela Road.
The road is gravel. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds on long dry straight-of-ways, without losing control due to wash boarding, ruts, or dips. It’s 21km long. The lagoon is a unique, totally unspoiled, inland waterway surrounded by a few dormant villages and vast coconut plantations.
