The majority of the 860 km Mozambique – Tanzania land boundary follows the Rovuma River and has not been demarcated. The 59 km section west of the Rovuma River was demarcated by a German–Portuguese boundary commission in 1907, confirmed in 1909, and follows the Messinge (Msinje) and Shipingue Rivers, a more or less straight overland section, and the Txuinde River to the shore of Lake Malawi. The location of the tripoint with Malawi is disputed.
