Pont Drift border crossing

Unread post by robertotoole »

We will be driving from Mapungubwe to Francistown in August. Pont Drift will be the shortest route. But how is the road through the river bed? I know it will be dry, but how sandy? Have you done it recently in the dry season? We will be driving a Nissan X-Trail 4x4.

Hi robertotoole,
I've done it a half-dozen times in Sept./Oct. with no problem. Just stay on the compacted road through the river bed. Enjoy your trip. :)
