Route: Johannesburg – Nelspruit – Komatipoort Border Post cross over into Mozambique .
Only one main road to follow – the EN1 – before the main city of Maputo take the Turn off to the left showing the Xai Xai sign. – Pass Xai Xai and Zandamela, Zavora etc. Follow the EN1. (Also check on Maputo ring road shortcut details).
The road splits at Lindela, RIGHT to Inhambane but carry on LEFT to Maxixe!! So keep on the main road (left side), and don’t drive towards Inhambane town.
Pass Maxixe, then about 70 kms on pass the town of Massinga – 7km further on – look out for the Morrungulo Resort sign on the right. You will leave the tar road and turn onto the dirt road – carry on straight to the end and don’t turn off, 13 kms in total (heading towards the sea). Our lodge is at the very end of the dirt road and has a cement wall entrance.

4×4 vehicles are recommended but not essential. All types of vehicle can reach our camp – sedans, trailers, motor homes etc. The only time you may have a problem is in times of excessive rains when the 13 km clay road becomes sticky. You will be able to reach us with a normal caravan, as long as you are towing with a bakkie or 4 x 4 type vehicle. If you are towing with low profile vehicle, then the jockey wheel tends to catch.
The journey should take you at least 8-9 hours from Komatipoort, if not longer. If you are towing or want to make various stops then of course it will take much longer. The highway from Maputo to the turn off is in excellent condition but allow yourself enough time to reach our lodge during daylight hours.
Directions from the North – (Zimbabwe to Morrungulo)
The distance from the Mutare border post to Vilanculos turn off is about 560kms. If you are traveling from Zimbabwe : follow the main Beira road past Chimoio and Gondola, and then turn south (right) at Inchope. This is the National road EN1to Inhassoro, Vilanculos, Morrungulo turn off and Maputo. You will cross the Revue, Busi and Save Rivers. Parts of the road after the Save River Bridge between Inhassoro and Vilanculos are pot-holed and caution should be exercised. Unguane is the last main town on the EN1 about 20 kms before you reach us. Keep your tank topped up along the way as some petrol stations on this route run out of fuel and there are long distances to the next garage. You will see the Morrungulo turn off 7 kms (left) BEFORE you reach the town of Massinga. The dirt road to us is 13 kms. Travel right to the END of that road (do not turn off at all) and you will see our cement walled entrance.
Buffalo camp 40 kms before the Save bridge is a good overnight stop.
Closest airports – Vilanculos or Inhambane – both approx. 180 kms away from us.
