    Default Taking meat into Caprivi

    I am leaving for Bots on Friday. Will be going to Moremi,Savuti and Ihaha and thereafter Kasane. From Kasane we will be going to Caprivi via the Ngoma gate/bridge. What is the position as far as meat is concerned? Is it okay to take meat allong taking into account that we will be coming from Kasane as opposed to Savuti

    No meat allowed to be taken into Namibia from Botswana. You also have to drive and walk through a foot and mouth disinfectant on the Namibia side.

    Katima has a massive Pick 'n Pay with good stock of meat and other things.

    For some bizarre reason, the Namibians also don't allow mealie sacks through, as in the woven plastic bags used for storing grain etc. I keep my braai grids wrapped in one of those, and my compressor was wrapped in one of those woven TK's braai wood bags, and the officials at the Katima border post made me dump them in the bin. Couldn't give me an explanation as to why they were verboten either.
