Wanted to cross Mapai on 26th and today again river is full, can't cross by vehicle at Pafuri or Mapai. There is a dodgy barge: Cost R550/vehicle and R450/trailer but you have to unpack your whole vehicle/trailer and they take vehicle sep, trailer sep and luggage seperately. Community campsite at Machaila S22 15.696, E32 57.163.

We also want to cross the Limpopo at Pafuri or Mapai on the 21 July 2010.

Is the road safe and ok going North from Pafuri using the MOZ/ZIM border fence route?

Some more info on water levels?

Land mines?

I'm not up-to-date with the crossing at either Pafuri or Mapai but I've travelled the Pafuri - Chicuala-cuala road and further north repeatedly and have never encountered mines. The section from Chicuala-cuala north-wards was upgraded last year; heavy rains could have made that undone
