The area is known as a low risk malaria area, but we do advise guests to seek medical advice from their own health practitioner before traveling.

It is advisable to bring insect repellent and don’t forget your sun cream if you are visiting us during the summer months! Choose a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor of between 30 and 50. Do not underestimate the power of the African sunshine!

Packing Tips & Suggestions

Choose neutral tones and light fabrics, preferably cotton. These fabrics work best in a hot climate.

Pack a couple of long sleeved shirts and at least one pair of long trousers. The evenings can be chilly and they are also good for keeping mosquitoes and other insects at bay!

The temperatures can vary greatly. In winter you can be very cold on a morning game drive, but by midday you are in shorts and a t-shirt so we would recommend layers!

You don’t need to pack heavy duty hiking boots. A good durable pair of trainers is all that is needed. Closed toed shoes are preferable as you never know what you are stepping on! Please don’t ever go barefoot around the Lodge.

And don’t forget to pack your camera and charger – you will want to take lots of photographs.
