The terrific trio consisting of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, on the last episode of their Grand Tour Show, decided to ‘save the world’, or sort of by combining their usual antics with a greater purpose in Mozambique.
This particular episode tackles the diet problem of small central villages who can’t get access to the plentiful supply of fish in coastal towns just 160 kilometres away.
The trio look to solving this problem by attempting to transport fish to Bingo to see how difficult it really is. Predictably, they cannot agree on the best method to do this, which makes for an entertaining spectacle with Clarkson perched behind the wheel of a dodgy Nissan pick-up, May in an old 1980s Mercedes 200T and Hammond on a brand new TVS Star motorcycle.
But what stood out most was perhaps Hammond falling off his motorcycle too many times, proving if it were that easy to navigate Mozambique’s adventurous roads, everybody would be doing it on the back of a bike.
However, this does not mean that an epic road trip through Mozambique should be put on some wish list somewhere, says Natalie Tenzer-Silva of Dana Tours.
“Instead of winging it, like Clarkson and his crew, we can offer practical advice for regarding the correct vehicle to use, the best route, general safety tips and we’ll even recommend the best local bars and restaurants, with the most delicious fresh seafood you won’t need to fall in the mud for.”
If you’re not ready to trek 4×4-style across Mozambique, board a plane bound for our tropical weather and pristine beaches. You’ll be rewarded with scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, sunset cruises, jet-skiing, kayaking, and plenty of swimming or simply relax on a sunlounger with a cocktail.
