    I have just got back from a 5500km trip through CKGR, Magadigadi, Maun, right up into the Caprivi via Mahembo and back down through Kasane, Nata, Sua Pan and out at Martins Drift and did not get stopped once going either north or south.

    But what about bacon, pork sausages, etc?
    Buy there or at home?
    The best local Bacon is Senn bacon, I like it as it isn't as salty as escort and its drier, as far as pork sausages the best I have had in a long time is from Senn in Tlokweng otherwise picknpay and spar alway's have, cold meats is cold meats unless you have a specialist deli then rather bring from your specialist butchery.

    Default Maccarthy's Rest Tshabong

    Up to now one can take 25kg meat per person into Bots from SA .James is right ,buy your wors in SA.I take wors and lamb chops with me ,rest I buy up there.Any processed meat like bacon ,I also take from here,but can be bought in Botsbut more expensive,as it all comes from here.
    Is this still applicable?
    We are going through Mccarthy's Rest to Mabua in December and don't have any good shopping options. I have never been to tshabong but I hear it's nothing to rely on.

    I bought some meat in botswana on previous occasions and would rather avoid the disapointment again. I don't know where people get this "amazing" meat in Botswana...
    If I can buy my meat here, I know what I get. However, I don't want to run a risk of seeing them take it at the border!
    A "taai" piece of meat is at least better than no meat

    Can someone confirm if what Puma 130 is saying is accurate?
    Has anyone travelled this route that might know of other options?
    I intend to live forever... So far so good.

    All border posts should have the same laws regarding importing of food stuff ,meat imports can change in 12 hours depending on the foot and mouth status ,up to now no problems this past 12 months .However ,like I say can change at a drop of a hat .I am relying on James Mackay to report the status closer to the time.Check the fruit and veg restrictions here on this section as well !!

    If I understand you correctly, the status is currently "green" to take meat into Botswana? Do you travel through the borders often and take meat no problem?

    I'll try confirm closer to time and scan the fruit&veg section also.

    Thanks for the advice.
