Hi Mike ,
We are going to Gonarezhou in August 2019 and would like to take the short cut across the Nuanetse ( ? ) River following the old
water pipeline to Chiqualaqua . We did this some 5yrs ago but wonder what the "road" is like now. I can't remember where the turnoff
is from the border gate .
Thanks Mike

Hi Grant.

The road/track is probably in about the same condition as it was five years ago. Perhaps a bit more erosion and the Limpopo and Nuanetsi crossing sand is quite thick so reduce tyre pressure to 1.5bar max before you cross Limpopo. There has been a lot of plundering of the trees and some truck tracks leading off so stick to the route.

There is now a great campsite 8km into Moz from Pafuri called Dumela Wilderness Safaris www.pafurimoz.co.za and I highly recommend that you spend a night there rather than regards rushing through Mozambique. Pels Camp is easily one of the best I know.

Go well.

Mike.

Hi again.
I forgot to mention that the turn off to cross the Limpopo is still the same well worn junction about 2km from Pafuri village. Then it's a couple of km through the Fever trees across the floodplain to the sandy Limpopo bed. Limpopo already running quite low and rainy season nearly over.
