    Default Zanzibar Border Post - Botswana

    Good day,

    Did anybody used Zanzibar border post recently? Is there a bridge or is it a river crossing? Are there any restrictions currently on taking meat into botswana for personal use for a weekend?

    All border posts contact numbers seems not to be working currently.

    Please advise.

    Once you have travelled this route you will want to keep it a secret from everyone else

    Border crossing both sides 25 minutes last time I used it. Turn right onto R561 just before Baltimore on the main road to Martins Drift. There is a bit of gravel road.

    See pic of crossing Limpopo. Cannot cross after heavy rain

    Cheers

    Thanks Mike,

    We will be going today from Ellisras to Selebi Pikwe. Still did not decide what border crossing to take (Stockpoort, Groblersdrift or Zanzibar). I like to explore and gravel road is not a problem to me. I think we will try Zanzibar but I am trying to call the border to confirm if it is open but all lines are not in use.

    Seems like we will have to find out on arrival only.

    There is no reason it should be closed. Call them to find out 014-7671024.

    Rob, in 2014 they were closed due to flood damage. That number does not work. I eventually found this number 014 7672964 which works. Osborne infomed me that they are currently open. In 2014 we had to deviate from Zanzibar to Platjan on the Tuli dirt road which was in a horrendous condition due to the higher traffic and rains.
