Q: Is this a malaria area?
A: You will be travelling through a malaria area, however the prevalence is very low in Maun. You will be spending most of your time in the bush away from populated areas where you are mostly at risks.  It is however recommended that you consult your doctor about malaria prophylaxis. We also suggest you take a few simple precautions whilst on safari such as covering exposed skin during the early morning and early evening with mosquito repellent .

Q: Is it safe to do a mobile boating safari?
A: It is perfectly safe to do a mobile boating safari. We use boats that conform to international marine safety standards and all safaris are guided by professional licensed guides. You will be given a safety talk before your safari.

Q: Is there a proper toilet and shower.
A: The toilet consists of a normal comfortable toilet seat (see picture) over a hole and flushing is done by adding sand or ash after use.  This means that there is no smell or evidence left behind.  Hot showers (see picture) are available at any time provided we are given a bit of notice 2 min.
 
Q: Do you get wild animals in camp?
A: This is possible as there are no fences. Please listen to your guides instructions and stay in the vicinity of the camp as most wild animals will avoid coming close to any human activity. Our guides and staff are trained to handle such situations and they will be on standby at all times. Keep in mind that animals may wander through camp during the day and at night, so be aware of your surroundings. 

Q: Can I use my mobile phone?
A: No, there is no mobile phone coverage in the Okavango Delta. Our guides will however have other forms of communication in the unlikely event of an emergency.
