Yep agree with Thinus

Will be watching the Limpopo level and as soon as there is any news, you all will be amongst the first to know.

Just go this via the overland google group:

"We are at Mapai crossing now the 21st (May)2010 at 13:18 and the river is reported about 1.2m Deep now, heavy rains in moz yesterday."

Note that the depth of 1.2m is only estimated - there will be holes and channels deeper.

So the barge remains the only option when crossing the Limpopo other than the barrage at Macarretane or the bridge at Chokwe. And of course there is Beitbridge SA - Zim too.

Limpopo should be dropping but call the Pafuri border (0800 - 1600) on
013 735 8936 and ask whether anyone has been crossing. Let us all know what you learn.
