Directions travelling south onto the EN1

Directions to the EN1 from the Villa Nova de Fronteira / Marka Border.

The N300 takes you 42km south to a town called Mutarara situated on the banks of the Zambezi River. There is a massive 3km railway bridge ('Dona Ana Railway Bridge') crossing the river to Villa de Senna but can only be crossed by foot or motorcycle.

The aim is to each Morrumbala along the N322. Continue 39km south from Mutarara and stay on the N322 (keep left at the fork along this route) for 31km where you'll reach a ferry crossing over the Shire River - note there is a small fee for this ferry service, so make sure you have cash in hand. Travel 12km north and turn right to stay on the N322 (it's very easy to continue going straight and north towards the border). Travel east for another 28km where you'll reach Morrumbala - a farming town where you can pick up basic supplies. Travel south through the town and past the cotton factory along the N322 for another 50km where you'll finally reach the tarred EN1. The entire journey from Villa Nova de Fronteira / Marka Border post to the EN1 is approximately 165km.
