    Default Malawi Trip 2011

    Hi all,
    I am planning a trip to Malawi this Dec.
    My plan is to drive up to Punda Maria and cross into Moz via Pafuri. Will it be possible to cross the Limpopo over Dec?
    From there I want to drive to Gorongosa and spend two/three days.
    Then Tete en route to Malawi.

    Any advise?

    Not sure about the Pafuri crossing - depends on water levels, but December is smack in the middle of the rainy season. Gorongosa may be closed in December because of the rains. Check before going all the way there.

    Correct Gorangoza is closed during Dec. There is however a lovely bush camp, past the main entrance called Mount Gorangoza. Approx. 14km from the main road.

    Take a raincoat, Dec can be very wet in those regions!
