The tarmac roads are mostly in good condition apart from some parts which mostly get renewed now. As soon as you leave the tarmac you mostly end up on sand roads very quickly, which makes Mozambique not ideal for motorbike riding with heavier bikes.
We had very hot and humid weather, specially the nights were really warm as well. It was just before the rain season started, therefore more humid than otherwise.
Apps / Websites
Here some apps and webpages we think are usefull for travelling overland to this country
Visa: As Swiss passport holders we could get the visa at the border but it is also possible to get it at the embassy in South Africa
Carnet de Passage: As we travel with the CdP we used it but you can also get a temporary import permit (TIP) at the border.
Insurance: You pay that when entering the country or you can get it online before you go. Check it out here: https://drivemoz.co.za/

You can get money easy at ATMs but its good to bring in some Rand or USD to get a start in case the first ATM does not work and also to pay the fees at the border.
