Special Precautions

As we are in a malaria risk area, guests have anti-mosquito units plugged into their rooms, and we suggest that they remain on during the night. We have screens on the windows and entrance door, and insect repellent is provided.

We strongly advise guests to consult their doctors before visiting any malaria risk area. Guests sometimes forget the strength of the African sun, so please make sure that you wear sunscreen and hats, and that you don’t lie outside in the sun too long.
