Great photos..now super excited! Flew to Blantyre yesterday, was beautiful clear day. Could clearly see Mapai and roads.

We sleep at Pafuri border the night before the crossing. Seems like a tight day, time wise according to my planning(using Garmap)?

Will it be possible if we cross Pafuri border between 8-9am to reach Mabalauata in Gonerazhou in one day with the border crossings and river crossing?

Hi there, I think that it would probably be possible but not advisable? It would be better to plan a stop over somewhere as you can't really predict the time you will have to spend at the border or how long/busy the ferry will be.

Hi there

I'm working in Gonarezhou, and, we constantly get queries from prospective campers in the Park, travelling from South Africa/Mocambique with regards to the status of the Limpopo for crossing at Pafuri, and/or otherwise how to find the ferry at Mapai and whether they are still in use etc.

Would appreciate if we could get a quick update, and suggestions as to how best to answer clients in the future? Any phone numbers and/or email addresses that clients could also use to verify river levels, find out about accommodation options etc. on the Mocambique side would also be very welcome.

Thanks

Elsabe

Dear Meloday

Thanks for the comprehensive and prompt reply - we will definitely give your email and telephone numbers to prospective clients wanting to travel from South Africa/Mocambique to Gonarezhou - both for an update on river but also of course to alert them to the fact that there is guest house soon to be!

Do you have any contact number at Pafuri Gate if one wanted to know the level of the Limpopo at the border itself?

Best

Elsabe
