    Russel I used to use the Moamba rd, but with the ring rd its just so much faster , better . That dirt rd can get bad and rutted , average speed 60 , and they have installed a tollgate at the bridge going over the Nkomati . not sure of the rate. But if you have not driven it , maybe do it for the experience. You exit just north of the Sugar-factory and join up with the EN1 .

    The Moamba road is good fun in the rainy session but if you in a rush (which you shouldn't be) than the ring road will suit you better. I did Moamba last year and enjoyed the detour. I'd probably do it again and stop over at Honeypot again. Being in a rush in Moz can only get you into trouble with the law, so breaking up the trip is recommended in my opinion.

    Can anyone tell me if the ring Road has been completed? Google shows the interchange on the EN1 North of Maputo is complete but the interchange on the EN4 West of Maputo looks like its still under construction. Any updates on the Moamba road will be appreciated.

    If you are towing dont take the moamba road, else your good. I am leaving for Zavorra on the 14th and is going via the ring road. Brother passed last week said getting onto the ring road is bit of a problem with all the rain, joggy wheel bent on boat trailer, but once on the ring road everything was smooth sailing. He was stopped on a 60 zone for doing 69, and got off with a warning. See you at border post or Zavorra boat name is Meatball.

    Hi Gerhard I am not towing at all. Just want to know if the road is ok and if this route is safe and assume less cops too. See u in Zavora 😂😇

    I used the Moamba road from Bilene on the 30/12/2017 the road were almost deserted of traffic.
    Nice sand road for the first 40 km then it became a mud bath with deep holes filled with mud water( 400mm)
    it was good fun ,trip took 4 hours and a nice relief from the traffic.
    My bush trailer did ok but covered in mud.
    The last bit of road just before Moamba were over crowded with big tipper trucks and a detour ,nasty mud and very slippery.

    The Bridge over the railway line is finished so there is no detour there anymore.
