    Default Road condition N of Xai Xai

    Hi,

    Has anyone been up past Xai Xai in the past few weeks? Just wondering if they have tarred any of the section they have been working on. Planning on towing my boat up to Guinjata this weekend and just wondering what the condition of the road is, and how long the stretch is till the road is good again?

    Thanks
    Marc

    A friend came down from northern Mozambique mid May and he said that the tarring had been done for about 35km north of Xai Xai. Hopefully they've gone a bit further by now but let us all know when you get back.

    Dag se - Kom nou net vanaf Morrubene noord van Maxixe. Die pad noord van Xai Xai is vir +/- 96 km afwissellend sleg.As jy nog in XaiXai isbegin die pad al werklik onbegaanbaar raak.Die enigste manier is stadig-stadig vir +/- 12km. Dan vir +/- 36 km is dit grond/sand pad waar aan gewerk word .Mens ry stop-stop as voertuie van voor kom.Groot trokke en Busse is die probleem.Dan vir +/- 12 km weereens die swakste pad denkbaar, Vol slagate en hobbels.Nou volg vir +/- 36km seker die beste teerpad denkbaar.Regtig glad soos n baba se boutjies.Dan volg weer n uiters sleg teer vir +/_ 12km .Dan n goeie teer tot by Inhabane en verder.
    Daar is beslis teveel voertuie op die pad,wat net so n groot probleem is as die slegte pad.Tog alles die moeite werd. Dit bly n land wat besoek moet word.Die mense is vriendelik en arm.
