Heard rumours about this but finally have pics that prove it. The
'pontoon' crosses at the usual Mapai/Xicumbane crossing but will still
be seasonal, I think as when the Limpopo is in full spate I think the
polers will be literally and figuratively out of their depth. Email me for more details and the photographs if needed. Cost is around R350 per vehicle, haggling skills dependant.

OK

I finally got through to the Pafuri border on 013 735 8936 and was told very definately that the 'Limpopo is very full and non-one is crossing', also that no-one has driven across this year yet. Also it seems that the Limpopo level is actually rising at the moment.

So pretty sure that your options are the barge, the detour through the Limpopo Park to Massingir, or the detour through Kruger or simply to go via Giriyondo - I phoned them at 013 735 8931 and was told the road was OK for 4x4's.

Thank you Mike,
I think that Giriyondo/Massingir is the only option after the recent rains
