Security Advise while touring Botswana

Lock doors, roll up your windows or stay with your vehicle when at rural and urban fuel

stations. There has been a marked increase in asset redistribution by alternative shoppers,

focusing on foreign license plates and obvious out-of-country visitors. SAffers are a  

favoured target.  

Movement of Meat in Botswana

 

You are allowed to bring in 25kg per family, excluding periods of Foot and Mouth Disease.

This should not be an issue normally. There are quality butcheries at relatively inexpensive prices.

General rules for movement of meat in Botswana:

You can take meat from South to North.

You can take meat from East to West.
