The high mobility of nodes in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), there exist frequent link breakages which lead to frequent path failures and route discoveries. MANET routing protocols have to deal with link breaks, which occur due to the frequent movement of the nodes and a dynamic network topology. The latency that occurs during this retransmission is referred to as rerouting time. There are several researches have been proposed by different authors to enhance the rerouting time. One such approach is the buffer zone routing, where the transmission area of a node is isolated into a safe zone near to the node and an unsafe zone close to the end of the transmission range.
