Lightweight clothing in dull colours, light sweater and heavier, warmer jacket. Swimming costume, sun protection creams. Dress is completely informal. Medical necessities, including anti-malaria medication. Camera, binoculars, sunglasses, hat, film. (Idube does stock hats, assorted clothing and shoes).
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.
