    Default Vet Fences

    Hi Guys. Are there any vet fences to worry about coming from Ngepi through the Mohembo border post going to Maun? Thanks

    Nee. Die vet lyn loop van palmwag verby Etosha, oshivelo suid van khaudom deur kuke botswana. So as jy vanaf ngepi ry is jy binne die rooi lyn en hoef dus nie te worry. Dit sluit well ander regeringsbelyde uit wat die invoer en uitvoer van voedsel tussen die lande reel.

    Last time I went through Mohembo there no issue. But at Ngoma the other day they looked at the fridge. Not sure what the difference.

    With an F&M outbreak in the area every thing changes.

    I presume coming from Maun going to Khumaga for (3 days) meat will be confiscated at Makalamabedi vet fence. Must have a steak on the fire in Makgadikgadi NP but do not want to drove down to Rakops just to buy a steak or two. Sucks

    Andre there is a Butchery in Motopi with nice steaks. Just after crossing the Boteti Bridge at Motopi, on the right.

    You can also sear the steaks in a pan and put them back in the fridge. Cooked meat is allowed through.

    Just sear it enough to allow for it to be warmed up a few days later without having to overcook it.

    I normally do it rare, to be able to do it medium rare the next time

    Thanks Malcolm. Never thought of this. Will first try it at home. Not sure if the steaks will keep its tenderness via this method. By "putting it back in the fridge", do you mean not freezing it?

    No, not freezing it again. Just cook the night before crossing the evening before getting to the Vet fence. Store in ziploc bag, ensuring no loss of moisture.
