Estrada Nacional 8 (EN8)

Estrada Nacional 8, a challenging road in Mozambique

Estrada Nacional 8 (EN8) is a long road in Mozambique, with a total length of 707km, linking the cities of Nacala-Porto and Chiponde. The road, a dirt track for hundreds of kilometers, includes asphalt and gravel sections.

Estrada Nacional nº 8 starts at Nacala (also known as Cidade de Nacala or Nacala-Porto), on the northern coast of Mozambique and the deepest natural port on the east coast of Africa. After arriving to Nampula, the capital city of Nampula Province, EN8 becomes a dirt road and only the bridges have tar. The road ends in Chiponde, near Cuamba, a city and district of Niassa Province in Mozambique, lying north west of Mount Namuli.
