Directions for self-drive (4x4 required):
There are two routes to Ponta do Ouro from Pretoria/Johannesburg: One via the Kosi Bay border post and the other via Maputo through the border at Komatipoort. Dream Beach lies approximately 100km from Maputo and a new tar road is currently underway and set to be completed towards the end of 2017. Currently the best route is via Kosi Bay as the road is more drivable and the border post quieter.
From Johannesburg, take the N12 through Witbank and Middelburg. Take the Hendrina off-ramp and travel through Hendrina, Ermelo, Piet Retief and Pongola. Once past the town of Jozini turn left to cross over the Jozini dam wall. When you reach the T- junction, turn right and continue through the town of Kwangwanase (Manguzi). Continue for another 17km or so to the Kosi Bay (Farazela) border. From here you will need a 4x4 vehicle to cover the last 12km stretch to the town of Ponta do Ouro. From Ponta do Ouro, continue for another 2km towards Ponta Malongane. On this road between Ponta do Ouro and Malongane, you will find Dream Beach Self-catering Villa on your right-hand side.
