4. What should I wear on safari?
We recommend wearing informal and comfortable, neutral-coloured clothing such as:
- Long pants or trousers for safari
- Good walking shoes
- Cotton shirts
- A warm fleece or jacket, hat or beanie and gloves for the mornings and cooler days.
5. Do you have wifi?
Yes, there is WiFi available in all suites and main areas of the lodge and pool area. Signal may be intermittent the further you are from the main lodge.
Please note that we ask that all phones be switched to silent in main areas to maintain the tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. Additionally, on sfari we request that devices be switched to airplane mode and all geotagging functions should be switched off to help with conservation efforts.
6. Can children go on game drive?
Yes, children can go on game drive. However, it is ALWAYS up to the discretion of the ranger driving the game viewer as to whether or not the child will be able to attend or not. If you are with children of 3 years or younger we ask that you hire your own private game viewer for your safari experiences or enquire about a babysitter to watch your child during the game drives.
