Malaria

We are situated in a high-risk area. As such we supply mosquito repellent to all guests and the rooms have nets over the beds and mesh on the windows. We also hire professionals to spray the entire camp regularly and after all rain to reduce mosquito numbers around the lodge. Prevention is always better than the cure, so we advise our guests to take the greatest of care and consult a medical practitioner for further advice.
