    Just heard there is a new outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease in Limpopo. Tests are being done to confirm this.
    So no meat from RSA to Bots for a while still it seems.

    What are the chances of food and mouth be lifted by June this year?

    We will buy local, but would be nice to take lamb chops from BILís farm along, nowhere to be found better.

    Our experience of buying (pre-arranged) meat from an ex-SA butcher in Palapye in 2011 was horrible.

    Things have changed a bit since 2011 Dirk. The meat from Food Lovers Market and the big Spar in Palapye is quite OK.
    I also bought meat and wors and biltong and dry wors from Bosveld Meat Market (previously Sandys Butchery). Biltong was OK.
    Not the same quality and taste as what you get here at home despite what the Bots locals claim but acceptable.
    Also heard that the biltong shop in Palapye after the Foodlovers centre on the left coming from the south is good for meat and biltong.

    Thank you JCARS, will keep this in mind.

    We did buy good quality meat back then at the Spar in Kasane, I remember the springbok steaks were excellent.

    Our September trip takes us up to Ngepi and Malyo in the Zambezi region (Caprivi). Next large town for shopping will be at Katima M. Our only other option would be Ghanzi where there are a few good stores. The question is whether we run a risk from Ghanzi into Namibia?

    So the F&M ban has been lifted within SA, I suppose it will not make any difference wrt the Botswana entry regulation, or do I stand corrected?

    Only leaving for Bots towards the end of June.

    Thanks

    They will lift the ban this side once they feel like it. Check in here a week or three before you coming to Bots on the status at borders. I cross atleast once every two weeks.

    But they are much more occupied at the borders at the moment on the lookout for Corona than anything else.

    Going through McCarthy's Rest on Tue: 7th. They used to be very strict on fresh meat there; still the same? Also what do they do about Corona Virus? Check temperature, or what?
    Thanks
    There is no human problem which could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise
