    How much time have you got and how many days have you booked at Mana?

    From Pafuri you have to go via Gonarezhou, so spend at least 3 nights, preferably 5 nights in GRZ. Then I would take the Eastern Highlands route via Mutare and Harare to eventually get to Mana Pools, staying over at convenient sites (eg. Chimanimani, Vumba) along the way.
    On the way back I would spend at least one night, preferably two, at Great Zimbabwe and explore the ruins for a full day. From there return to SA via Beit Bridge, coming out is always easy compared to going in there.
    Just have a plan B. If there is late rains, it may not be possible to cross the Limpopo at Pafuri.

    A viable alternative from Kruger's Pafuri Gate is to go via Beit Bridge. Things on the Zimbabwe side are much improved. In this forum, in the Zimbabwe section, there are contact details for a tourism official's contact number. Use them as it will greatly ease and speed youir passage through this border. There will also be information on what days of the week and times of day are easiest.

    It would appear that Beit Bridge is far easier than in the past
    Consider overnighting at Antelope Park near Gweru.
