Sitzas farm stall - Mata Mata

Unread post by keith@kichaka.co.za » Sun Oct 30, 2016 6:37 pm

Can one still cross the border from Mata Mata to Sitzas to purchase provisions without a passport?
Can anyone offer experience of doing this recently and is it still well priced? Or is Upington still the best bet for meat? Thank you

I read, I think it was in a travel report, that someone was not allowed to go into Namibia.
Maybe it's easier for SA passport holders?
But I have also read that the stall can be closed or out of stock!
Upington or somewhere along the way is a good option but it would be nice to restock in the park.
The camp shops apparently do sell meat from Upington, but I guess if Kruger shops can have supply difficulties, ...............
Then in an even more remote area, I wouldn't want to rely only on them.

Thanks Kite
I certainly would not rely on them for major supplies but just the odd specialty purchase. Let's see if anyone has first hand experience in the last while :wink: .
Good to support local if one can....Have a great day...

Hi Kite,

We walked over to the farm stall in Namibia,from Mata Mata last December.
It didn't really have much in stock,but we bought a jar of balsamic salad dressing just because we had made the effort!!!
You just need to ask permission from the SA border guys and ,importantly,from the Namibian border guys.
No passports asked for.
If you still want to go check the opening hours.

Thanks Afrifile,
That was disappointing for you!
I wonder if anyone has been across the border to the farmstall more recently?

Folks, I was in the KTP last October and I did walk over to Sitzas. I know the shop looks bear but I had preordered plenty of meat and fresh bread and it was fantastic and cheap.

I suggest you contact them via Facebook or email them with a preorder about 2 weeks before you are going to pick it up.

Here are the contact details I used. Manus and Lara Kotze <kotzem@mweb.com.na>

thanks

We took a walk to the farm stall early in March.
It makes an interesting little excursion and had stocks of meat, rusks and touristy items.
