We are leaving tomorrow for our long awaited holiday in Mozambique.
All our family and friends are very concerned about us sleeping in the bush around the village just before Chai.
As a person that has travelled Moz extensively would you feel comfortable sleeping in the bush in that area. We will obviously camp a fair distance away from the village.
Are you also comfortable that Moz south from Vilanculos are safe from these bandits that is causing so much irritation around the Save river?
Once again thank you for your feedback

Sorry for delayed reply. Yes I am sure you will be fine bush camping about 30km before Chai. There was an isolated incident near Funhalouro that was attributed to Renamo, but I think it may have been a feud over land or cattle. Otherwise south of the Save very calm and quiet and certainly overall safer than many areas of rural South Africa or in our cities.

Greetings from the Luvuvhu River at
Welcome to mozguide, Markus.
The Limpopo River has not been flowing for about four months so an easy crossing. Note the tire pressure must be 1,5 bar and engage low-range before the thick sand or you can become stuck in the sand.
I will be using the Pafuri border in a few hours and staying at www.crookscornerlodge.com tonight. If you want to drive Pafuri to Vilanculos in one day then you must cross at the border the night before as the border only opens at 0800 and Pafuri to Vilanculos is around 14hrs non-stop, and not a good idea to drive in the dark on the main road in Mozambique.
See you tomorrow, perhaps.
