ⓘ Futi Corridor

Futi Corridor in Mozambique, is a corridor of land along the Futi River to the South African border. The corridor will effectively restore an historical migration and movement route of a valuable elephant population between Maputo Special Reserve and the Tembe Elephant Park in South Africa. The Futi Corridor covers 68.800 Ha. The Futi River is the northern extension of the drainage line known as the Mosi Swamp, which rises near Manaba about 55 km south of the border. The Futi River does not reach the sea, but ends in swamp grasslands in the north of the Maputo Reserve.

The reserve ultimately is part of the Lubombo TRANS-boundary nature reserves, which includes national parks from South Africa, Mozambique and Swaziland. At the moment it is part of the Usuthu-Tembe-footy transboundary protected area.

The world wildlife Fund has financed 26 km electrified to stay on the line to keep elephants away from farmland.
