Mozambique is a southeastern African country located on the Indian Ocean. It is bordered by Tanzania to the north, Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe to the west, and South Africa and Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) to the south. The capital and largest city is Maputo.
The road network in Mozambique is extensive but is predominantly composed of unpaved roads, particularly in rural areas. The total length of the road network is approximately 30,000 kilometers, of which only about 10% is paved. The main paved road runs along the coast from Maputo to Beira, with several smaller roads branching off to other parts of the country.
There are also several expressways in Mozambique, including the Maputo Ring Road and the Beira Corridor. These expressways are generally well-maintained and provide a faster and smoother travel experience compared to the unpaved roads.
For those interested in exploring Mozambique’s natural beauty on foot or by bike, there are numerous opportunities for walking, cycling, and hiking. The country is home to several national parks and reserves, including Gorongosa National Park and the Niassa Reserve, which offer trails for hiking and biking amidst stunning landscapes and wildlife.
