It has never been simpler for travellers to head on over to Mozambique from South Africa, with Africa's longest suspension bridge now officially opened earlier this week.
The 3km-long, twin-tower suspension Maputo-Catembe Bridge stands about 114m above Maputo Bay, is 680 metres-long and joins the city centre to the outlying district of Katembe, according to AFP.
It is also expected to significantly reduce travel time. This trip can take up to six hours when driving from KwaZulu-Natal's Kosi Bay to Maputo – however the bridge will now reduce that time to roughly 90 minutes - allowing you to dedicate more time, in-destination to your border-crossing break.
