Geographical advantages

South Africa's Energy and Metallurgical Special Economic Zone is located in the two towns of Musina and Makhado in the Vhembe district of Limpopo province. Musina is located in northern Vhembe. The area is strategically located between South Africa and Zimbabwe and is therefore also linked to other SADC countries such as Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Tanzania, Malawi and Kenya. Musina is linked to the Kruger National Park in the east, Gauteng in the south and Botswana in the west. It connects to the main centers of South Africa through the N1 route to Pretoria and Johannesburg. The connection to Zimbabwe is one of the busiest roads in Africa. This position and economic importance provide the SEZ with a range of opportunities for exploration.
