Tips before reaching this border:

We strongly advise you fill up with fuel and gather any supplies needed at Komatipoort on the South African side before entering Mozambique.

Note: You are NOT allowed to bring any amount of beer into Mozambique (and don't chance it)! See Mozambique Duty Free Custom & Import Restrictions for more information.

Money can also be exchanged in Komatipoort at the BP (garage) shopping centre where a foreign exchange office is located. DO NOT change money on the Mozambican side of this border as there are a lot of con artists that are known to fleece unsuspecting travellers!

The new Moamba Toll Gate along the EN4 from the border to Maputo accepts rands, meticais and US dollar.

Consider sleeping over in Komatipoort if you have a long trek ahead of you in Mozambique, eg: if you are travelling to the Inhambane area, Pomene or Vilanculos. The trek to these destinations take a lot longer than what Google Maps predict (also remember weather permitting).
