    Default Giriyondo border post

    GDay

    Anybody else going through Giriyondo border post on the 3rd May this year? We'll be 2 vehicles but my buddy's enthusiasm at this stage is what's making me post this.

    We want to go through early morning on our way to Zavora Lodge.

    Cheers

    quite a few people use the border post, the roads are not that bad so you will not get stuck and if something does happen there is enough traffic to help out. If they stop that is!

    Remember border only opens at 8am I am not sure what is early morning to you

    I must say in December 07 we used that route and it was really easy going. However December last year after a bit of rain it got a bit messy. Provided all is 4wd you wont have a problem

    Thanks for the reply.

    Not 4wd but all my research at this stage point to it not really being necessary, unless a major thunderstorm the night before, then there might be a complication or 2

    I'm sure I'll spot someone going through either in Letaba (overnight) or at the border post itself. I'm aware of the 8 am opening

    Cheers

    just watch out for the many potholes in the tar from massinger onwards. past dec they were bad and we had plenty of rain between giriyondo and massinger. stayed over at fish eagle camp.

    Thanks for the update

    My route will be Giriyondo - Massingir - Chokwe - Chibuto - Chidenguele and then north to Zavora.

    Looks like the first stretch between Giriyondo and Massingir is gravel and after that a combination of gravel and tar?

    This will be our first time in Moz, next time we'll also sleep over at Massingir, that 2.5 hours between Giriyondo and Massingir with the border only opening at 8 is the main problem (time wise) I'm looking at around 8 hours to reach Zavora.

    Cheers

    I had a corsa bakkie with low profile mags on come flying past me on that road in december, he made it fine, coming back in jan the rain made things interesting. watch out or the speed bumps though.

    In jan the tar road down to Xai Xai was not bad, ave speed was 80km per hour road was very quite so you could dodge the pot holes
