Lagoa Poelela

Located north east of Maputo, the road to the lake is totally unpaved. It’s called Lagoa Poelela Road. A 4x4 vehicle is required. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. The lagoon is a unique, totally unspoiled, inland waterway surrounded by a few dormant villages and vast coconut plantations. Starting from Siane, the road to the lake is 9.0 km (5.59 miles) long.
