Advice on travelling to Zimbabwe Via Pandamatenga

4 posts in this topic

We are planning a self drive trip to Zimbabwe in December via Botswana and the Pandamatenga border post. Our destinations are Hwange, Msuna and the Falls, the idea of travelling via Pandametenga is to hopefully avoid as many Zimbabwe road blocks as possible. Any advice would be much appreciated and if possible to advise the state of the roads.

Very old, but in 2012 we used this border post to do a day trip from Kasane to the falls.

 

At the time, the roads were in pretty good condition. They were also nice and quiet, although there was one road block shortly after the border post.

Hi, we were travelling via Pandamatenga in June 2015. We were only the vehicle on the border post. The previous vehicle was two days before. On our way to Hwange we met a vehicle driving opposite direction. It was already a traffic!! ;-)

It was an excellent stay in Hwange. A few people, a lot of animals. Excellent sightings. Very friendly staff everywhere making their best.

Met Cecil, the Lion. Personally... Was very touched reading he was shot.

Going again for two weeks in September. Again via Pandamatenga. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
