    Got confirmation from Sanparks that one can travel to the Mabua section as long as you enter and exit via Twee Rivieren.

    From the Sanparks website today. I am due there on 1st april, camping only at Rooiputs. Would like to know if all good to do that with the Botswana side.

    According to SANParks, only emigration is closed at Twee Rivieren… “meaning travellers cannot enter the Park and exit to Namibia at Mata Mata or exit into Botswana through one of their gates. However you can still enter the Park and exit the park at Twee Rivieren.”

    If anyone entered at Tweerivieren and camped Botswana side only, then exited at Tweerivieren, Please confirm its still ok.

    I saw thanks, just wanting to get as much info as possible, with things changing on a daily basis. Want to try and avoid driving from Joburg only to find I can't camp at Rooiputs. 👍
