03-Jul-2002 -- This Confluence lies between the settlements Ribáuè and Malema in the Nampula province of Mozambique, just off the main Road 8 from Nampula town to Mandimba in Malawi. The route follows the 15°S latitude closely.

The actual point lies about 400 m north of the road. There was a turn-off to some huts. Although communication was difficult, some locals staying in the vicinity ensured us that there are no landmines in the area and it was encouraging that they accompanied us. The area is typical bushveld.
