Ferry at Mapai (Limpopo Transfrontier Park)

A new vehicle ferry has been installed at the Limpopo crossing on the route from Pafuri in the northern Kruger Park via Limpopo National Park to Mapai, but it operates only when the water levels are to high to cross otherwise.
Towards Vilanculos: R 550
Towards Pafuri:  R 450
At other time of year the Mopani Bridge (when not under water) costs R 70, while the riverbed, assuming that you are brave enough, is free!

    In November 2012 I crossed the Limpopo from the Parque Nacional do Limpopo (I recommend Mahinga Pan 4×4 dry camp and Nhampfule (near Mapai and has running water). River was dry (usually starts to become difficult to cross beginning Dec and by Jan is impossible to drive through), and there is a new makeshift vehicle ferry under construction at the tolled crossing point (usual crossing point) near Mapai.
