Self drive from Maputo to Chidenguele Village (260kms)
Naara is located in Chidenguele, only 260kms north of Maputo and a mere 60kms from Xai-Xai. Depending on how much traffic you get leaving Maputo, you can arrive in Chidenguele in only 3 hours if you average 70 km/hour. So, it is a perfect place for weekends! The National Road from Maputo (EN1) has been totally remade and the driver will not find one pot-hole on the way. The safe speed is 100 to 120 kms/hour but in areas signed, the driver will need to drive at 60-80 kms.

Self drive from Southern Part of the Kruger Park (370 kms)
If you are in the Kruger, Naara Eco-Lodge is less than half day away! If you exit at Crocodile Bridge exit, you will be in the Komatiport Border in less than 20 minutes. Once you pass the border, Maputo is about 100kms away in a superb free-way style road. Just before Maputo, there will be signs to Xai-Xai. Just follow those signs and you will be in the EN1, which will take you directly to Chidenguele. We are about 260kms north on the EN1 from Maputo.
Self drive from the Central Part of the Kruger Park (250 kms)
This is our preferred way! You get to spend time in the most exciting areas of the Kruger Park, and you can cross to Mozambique through Kruger border without even leaving the Kruger Park! So easy and smooth! Once you are in Mozmabique, you will drive through the Limpopo National Park, which is a continuation of the Kruger Park. The drive is an adventure alone as you go through small towns and villages of rural Mozambique. About 100 kms is through dirty road (no 4x4 necessary but a high car is advise for comfort reasons) and you will reach the EN1 just south of Bilene. From there it will be about more 100 kms to Chidenguele village in a well paved free-style road.
