Warning: We strongly encourage visitors not to enter or travel through the northern regions of the Cabo Delgado Province due to recent and ongoing attacks in the area. Areas to completely avoid include Pangane, Mocimboa da Praia, Palma, Quionga as well as the Namoto - Kilambo Ferry Border and Negomano / Mtambaswala (Unity Bridge) Border.

The Namoto - Kilambo Ferry border is located 40km from Mtwara Tanzania crossing the Ruvuma River mouth into Mozambique. The relatively new barge-like ferry can transport approximately 6 4x4s or 8 smaller vehicles across the river.

Departure times depend entirely on the tide (water must be at least 3 meters deep) and will vary from day to day. To avoid any inconveniences, please call Captain Dula on +255(0)78 772 4928 who is in charge of the ferry to discuss departure times and boarding room availability for the particular day you arrive because sometimes they load the ferry and depart the next morning (or when the tide is high enough).

Travel Suggestions from Tanzania into Mozambique

We strongly suggest you either travel through the Matchedje Border 130km south of Songea (Tanzania) or go through Malawi via the Songwe Border (link opens in a new window and to our Malawian website) into Mozambique.
