Hi i heard that there is now an offical barge at Mapai - any truth to the that? I am realizing all over again that clearly the Mapai Machaila Mabote Inhassoro route can not be done at the end of December? Has the rain been bad so far? Thanks for all the info on this forum

In July I had also heard the rumour about the Mapai barge but no-one knew of it. I see today from Fly Fishes trip report that he came back via Mapai and does not mention the barge.

Any news of a barge at Mapai (Xicumbane) Limpopo crossing?

Forgot to say that I crossed the Limpopo at Pafuri in July this year (09) and asked around regarding the barge but no-one knew anything. Also even if you have crossed the Limpopo that could be the least of your troubles as big rains in this region can flood the many other smaller rivers that have to be forded, and there are also huge deep puddles in places.

Parts of the catchment area of the Limpopo have already had heavy rains so my guess is that by Dec 15 the Limpopo will be at dangerous (for crossings) levels.
