    Default Ponto du Ouro - Pafuri ?

    Hi There.

    Has anybody done the route from Ponto du Ouro through to Pafuri ? From what I've been told the road north of Maputo basically follows the Limpopo River from Moz right back into the KNP.........I'm thinking of trying this in Dec, so if anybody has been there done that, I'd love to hear.

    We did it but we went via Xai Xai. It just depends on how high the river is.

    Just take a 2nd vehicle with. If you pick up a problem there, you will be in deep sh1t. No cellphone. No population. No infrastucture.

    That time of year its a risk as to wether the Limpopo is crossable or not. There is roads that follow close to the river but sometimes you will not even see the river for a long time.

    I would suggest you go from Maputo, Macia, Massingir, into the park and then North towards Mapai then Pafuri. From Maputo I would say allow for at least 4 to 5 days travelling and as Henris said, take backup.
