Macarretane is a town in southern Mozambique.

Nearby is the Macarretane Dam which dams the Limpopo River. It was constructed to maintain levels of water flow of the Chokwé irrigation system.[1]

Transport[edit]

It lies on the mainline of the southern system of Mozambique Railways where that railway bridges the Limpopo River.
