ACCOMMODATION IN MUSINA (MESSINA)
The N1 ends at Beit Bridge on the Zimbabwean border, but it continues, albeit under a different name. It is just the beginning of what Cecil John Rhodes called “The Great North Road,” that he hoped would reach Cairo. Musina is the closest town to the border so it’s often filled with Zimbabweans doing weekly or monthly shopping. Beit Bridge is a very, very, busy border post, so if you are planning on travelling through it, make sure all your papers are in order, take a bottle of water to sip, a novel to read, a calm mind and a lot of patience.
