Namibia/Mata Mata Border Post

Unread postby pcrj » Mon Apr 21, 2014 11:26 am

Hi travellers, we will be crossing from Namibia to Mata Mata at an unknown date. Does any body out there know if we can book camp accommodation at the Mata Mata border post?

Cheers! :D

It depends what time of year it is . In school holidays it is not worth taking the risk. As far as I am aware they will not let you through the border unless you have 2 nights accomodation in the park

pcrj,
As klotzof says they will not let you through the border unless you have two nights booked in one of the camps. Its a bit a gamble to pitch up and hope there is something available. Having said that if you are out side of the school holidays (both Namibia and SA) then you should find a campsite in at least Twee Rivieren or Mata Mata.
Remember if you are going to camp at TR then you need to arrive early enough at Mata Mata to allow time to drive to TR. (dont forget the 1 hour time difference between Nam and SA)
