If you are coming from Johannesburg, Louis Trichardt has the last unleaded petrol, from Zimbabwe it's Messina. Tshipise has regular petrol and diesel and there is now a small store selling fuel at Masisi. In the Kruger, Punda Maria is your last fuel stop. Please watch out for animals on the road between Tshipise and the camp.
Please be advised that the R525 at the T - junction of Masisi and Tskikondeni Mine is closed due to the road having being washed away in the floods.
So, as you pass through Masisi and just before the Tshikondeni Mine turn off, watch out for a detour on your left.
A makeshift gate and guard house. Also watch out for the Pafuri River Camp signboard indicating the detour to the left.
NNB DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS at the road closure – it wants to take you to the right past Tsikondeni Mine and somewhere towards THOHOYANDOU – this is NOT CORRECT and you will get lost.
You can always ask the local Masisi Inhabitants if you are unsure – they are helpful and friendly
Drive safely, see you soon.
