Hi all at Casa Bufalo.

Thanks for the heads up! Yes the Limpopo came down a few months late this year, but with a vengeance...

Perhaps crossing will be possible again by July, all depends whether the rains end soon.

Keep us informed as to when your accommodation at Mapai (Estacao or Railway) will be opend for guests.

Regards
Mike

Hi Mike and CasaBufalo

We are planning a trip to Gonarazhou via Pafuri end of June 2018.

I've only crossed the Limpopo always in August.

We are now looking at the ferry service at Mapai for crossing the Limpopo.

When you say you estimate only possible crossings in July again - do you mean self drive crossings? Or will the ferry only then operate again?

Do you have more information regarding the use of the ferry please.

Thanks for your time.

Regards

Riaan

Hi Riaan,
At this stage the ferry crossing is operational and it should still be ok in June but we will have to keep you updated!

Hi there. I have been offline for a week in Gonarezhou Zimbabwe. I would not use the ferry unless the Limpopo is flowing slowly and the deepest channel only perhaps 100m wide. I looked at the Limpopo at Chokwe a week ago and it was quite high. Driving crossing by end June is my guess.

Thanks also Casa Búfalo for your input. I stopped by and see progress on your guest house is looking great.

Mike
