    I will be going from Giriyondo to Mapai and Vilanculos in Sept.

    Will be crossing the border at Giriyondo and drive to Mapai and camp at Nhampfule. I used this email to book [email protected]

    This the only info I got, so any more would be help.

    As TStone mentioned, we will be doing the same route over December.

    After speaking with Bruce he sent me his maps, I am sure he wont mind me posting them here.

    On another note, does anyone have any idea on the electricity situation in Vilankulo of late?
