Thanks guys, your advice is most welcome. Prof, your advice is great, having been to remote spots in Moz we also resorted to pre-cooking then vacpac & freezing main meals; it worked rather well. Cant wait to be there, how many sleeps left to 3 May??

Dreamer beat me to it! Not a big detour and well worth it for the wood. We spent the night there before heading into the park so that we could get there at opening time. The Askham Sands guest house is a great place with Hannetijie cooking divine meals and husband Piet - he of the wood! - telling great stories. Hannetjie was born in Askham and between them they own the town (or so we think!!!!).
I am so jealous of both you and Dreamer - would LOVE - yes shouting - LOVE to be heading back!
I am not to sure on this. The vet gates are more to the north AFAIK. Picked up in another forum that people did take meat through. Other supplies should not be a problem at the border, but when there is food and mouth disease in Botswana they confiscate all meat (except poultry), dairy and eggs(why the eggs I have no idea). Meat is available at Tsabong, but try other forums on this as well. Last year Tsabong ran out of diesel so other stuff may also be in short supply sometimes.

The shops do sell ice (although sometimes they run out). I have seen bread in the fridges and colddrinks - but if you staying at Mata Mata or Nossob, it may be an idea to order some roosterkoek or a loaf of home made bread from reception...they are delicious!!

We will definatly try the roosterkook, it's on our "menue". But we are also making burgers one night, and hotdogs and I just want to know if I have to maybe buy this when we enter the park at TR. Thanks for the advice.
Yes petrol and diesel is available at TR, Mata Mata and Nossob. There is not much difference between the price of petrol and diesel, although usually diesel is cheaper. The biggest advantage is the better fuel consumption of diesel vehicles.
