From Shorobe to Mawana Vet fence the road has been graded but is already bumpy, dusty and lots of corrugations. Mawana Vet Fence to South Gate has also been graded and is also bumpy and dusty.
The road has and is being graded. It is dusty, bumpy and dusty. A few kilometres before Sankuyo village until about 10 kilometres after Sankuyo village they are doing road works, there are lots of gravel heaps with the road down to one lane. Some people don’t know how to slow down and keep speeding throwing up lots of dust. Drive with care.
No problems here, a few small sand patches. 1st and 2nd bridges in use due to water. No water crossings.
A little water when driving on to 3rd bridge itself. Otherwise road is fine with a bit of sand here and there.

Dry, Dusty, Bumpy. The marsh road is very bumpy and very dusty to start off with. There are a few bad patches where it is bumpy, but not too bad. The sandridge road is not bad either, the sand not too bad yet.
I drove this road last week, the game scout all recommend going via Ghoha gate. The road wasn’t bad, I passed through at 14:30 and the sand wasn’t all that bad. Tyre pressure and momentum. I returned the following morning I returned around 9:30 and drove through in 2nd H4 most of the way through the sand.
The road is fine and a little bumpy to Ghoha gate. After the gate the cut lines have recently been graded, the sand is loose but the tracks are getting better.
Dry, Bumpy & Sandy.
The potholes are still bad between Makalamabedi Vet Fence and Motopi turn off, take care when driving over them, some are deep. The road is dry at Zoroga, just a little bumpy and corrugated. Take care.
Take your time, drive carefully and enjoy.
