Hi,

We travel from Massingir to Xai-Xai in a month. Does anyone know which will be the better route in terms of road conditions.
Massingir - Chokwe - Macia - Xai-Xai or Massingir - Chokwe - Manjacaze - Xai-Xai or any other routes?
A few other questions:
- How much time is usually needed for this trip (without speeding off course)?
- Are there any interesting stops for a small break along the road?
- Any good tips or tricks to handle the police stops (besides staying polite, etc.)?

Thanks in advance, looking forward to visit Mozambique!

greetings,
Wouter

Hi Wouter

Welcome to Mozguide. The best route is via Macia. The Chibuto (Manjakaze) route has bridges washed away so there are rough detours across the floodplains. Massingir to Xai-Xai is about 4hrs. There is a fuel station with a good restaurant on the lhs as you arrive in Macia. You could make a diversion to Bilene to see the lagoon.

Go well

Mike
