5 tot 15 April.

5de Vertrek ons vroeg die oggend uit Gauteng na Phalaborwa waar almal bymekaar kom sodat ons die KNP ingaan, deur Letaba vir 'n laaste volmaak en deur Giriyondo voor 14h sodat ons nog ons beplande kamp plek by Mapai kan maak. Giriyondo is baie nice grenspos, voel soos 'n "lodge check-in" en het ongeveer 20min gevat. Na die afdraai van die pad wat massingir toe gaan sodat ons by Mapai kan uitkom raak die pad twee spoor met 'n paar rivier beddings en villages. Teen 21h is ons ongeveer halfpad tussen Giriyondo en Mapai, T4A wys 'n camp plek naby en ons gaan stel ondersoek in. Warm water storte en 'n tent kamp met 'n vliegveld in die middel van nerens word ons tuiste vir die aand teen R60pp. (Xtrail verloor eerste band).

6de Vertrek weereens na Mapai per twee spoor. Eventueel kry ons 'n "boom" in die middel van nerens en besef dat ons in Mapai kamp is waar ons die TFP gaan verlaat. Groot opwinding want die limpopo oorgang le voor en ons het nie 'n idee van die water vlak en of daar 'n ferry beskikbaar is nie. Die rivier is baie laag en alhoewel dit nie nodig was nie het ons die 200mets per voertuig betaal. Teen middag ete in Machaila weet ons daar is nog ongeveer 300km oor tot in Vilanculos en met die stand van die 2spoor paaie gaan ons donker kamp opslaan. Kort na middag ete verloor die Xtrail 'n tweede band en die toyotas se 6gat wiele pas nie op die 5gat hub nie. Die helfte van die groep spandeer die aand in die bos langs die pad terwyl die res Vilanculos toe skuif.

7de Staan vroeg op en gaan soek 17duim bande in Vilanculos. Bleik onmoontlik en dit is boonop vakansie dag met parades, dus is die enkele plekke nie regtig oop nie. Na 'n paar uur se gesoek en gesukkel met bietjie portugeus en minder engels verstaan mense nie dat ons van hul karre met 5gat wiele, se spaar wiele wil leen of koop nie. Met 'n bietjie geluk ontmoet ons oom Braam (suid afrikaner), wat vir ons drie 5gat wiele van 'n waentjie af leen. Teen 12h vat die "Surf" (my lux) die pad terug na waar die manne in die bosse sit. Die 250km vat ons 5ure en teen 17h kry ons die xtrail met 2 van die blyste gesigte wat ek al ooit gesien het. Na 'n vinnige bier en 'n bande verwisseling vat ons die pad na Vilanculos verder/terug. Nog 'n pap wiel net na donker op die xtrail stoot frustrasie maar gelukkig het ons nog 'n wiel of twee. As iemand continental 4x4 Contact op 'n kar het, moenie van teer af gaan met dit nie. Na 500km se rowwe grondpad is 'n stukkie gemiddelde teer darem baie lekker.

9de, baie lekker eiland trip in die die bazaruto archipelago.

10de 140km/h op die strand by inhassorro.

12de, koop 2 "low profile" 2de handse bande by 'n workshop/scrap yard en verskuif kamp na Zavora lodge

15de lang dag se ry via Maputo terug na Gauteng. Kry paar mense langs pad wat vuil petrol ingegooi het in hul disco 2 en sleep 2 waens terug sodat hul bakkie die disco 2 deur die grens kan sleep. Ek weier om 'n 2000met "boete" te betaal en los my lisense vir die rowers in uniform net voor die grens.

Reviews voor die tyd was vir my baie op geblaas, mozman het gese dis byna onmoontlik tensy jy met 'n cruizer gaan. Kan dink dat die paaie en rivier kruissings aansienlik moeiliker sal wees in reen seisoen waneer vrouens in bome geboorte skenk ens maar hou net die weer dop vir 'n maand voor die tyd. Die 2x4 xtrail was baie goed bevoeg en capable vir die roete. Die bande was die enigste probleem gewees, die ander voertuie het genadiglik nie 'n band verloor nie maar sou kon uitruil onder mekaar.

PTA tot in Vilanculos Via giriyondo 1200km (1000km beplan), Vilanculos tot PTA via Maputo 1470km

Hi George, ek het 'n pdf van die kaart wat hulle by die grens vir ons gegee het maar moet nog plan maak oor hoe om dit te upload. Kan jou 'n epos ook stuur.
