I drove across the Limpopo near Pafuri a month ago and it was knee deep and dropping fast. Currently it is very shallow and unless there are heavy rains in the catchment area, by 11 May it will be barely flowing.
So a bigger issue is the thick sand on the floodplain and as you cross the dry river bed. It is essential that you reduce tire pressure of your vehicle and your caravan to 1.5 bar and then reinflate once across.
You will also have to reduce tire pressure for the Nwenezi (Nuanetsi) river crossing about 25km from Pafuri border and the reinflate again.
Have an interesting trip.

Back from my hectic 4x4 trip through Gonarezhou. Will do this trip again but not from Parfuri ! Limpopo crossing a doddle but from Parfuri to Sango took 6 hours . Military at Sango very intimidating because of my GOPRO on my roof even though I was not recording with a dead battery ! Took passports for a while while the had a group discussion demanding my documentation for photographs . I kept on telling them I had none and kept telling them I didn’t understand! Eventually they capitulated gave my passport back an we move on ! I will think twice about going back to Moz as this was not my first time for their heavy handed intimidation. If they want visitors they better get this right !
