Hi Mike
I just want to know if it would be possible to drive with a vw 4motion transporter from Pafuri, Mapai to Vulanculos. My husband is a experienced 4x4 driver?

Thanks
Saar

Hi Saar
Thanks for contacting me. A few years ago I had a Honda CRV to test drive and so asked for advice about using it on the Pafuri route. Almost everyone said it would be fine.

The problem is they had only used proper 4x4's on this route and so their advice was not reliable.

I drove the route using the Honda CRV and it was a nightmare. Where a bakkie could drive at 60kph I had to drive at 15kph to be able to avoid every rock or dip in the road. Never again!

So yes your vehicle may have better capability than a CRV, but I have not driven one on this route.

It is possible, but sections of the route will be walking pace and you could damage your vehicle severely.

When do you intend to travel?

Mike
