Thank you for your question, we do not have hairdryers in the rooms. this is due to the limited power supply - Jacana is powered by a combination of solar and generator power and therefore cannot power the use of hairdryers without losing power to light the rooms through the night.
There are a handful of camps however, that are able to power and supply hairdryers for your use. To get a list of these please contact your Travel Agent for more details.
