What clothing should we bring for our stay in early January?
Early January is the middle of summer here so it will be HOT. Bring light-weight, breathable clothing and maybe a light jacket for the evening. Sturdy walking shoes are good if you do a bush walk.

Hi- roughly how much money is advisable to bring- we will be staying 4 nights. Thabkyou
Drinks are the only thing you will need money for, very reasonably priced and well stocked, You will also need money for tips to your guides and the wonderful staff. Everything else is taken care of, A cold beer in the terrapin hide is amazing , you must try. All the guides are great but I personally recommend David, He is so good and informative.

Do you know of Self Drive/ Camping lodges close buy and can you help me with addresses please.
"Definitely the tree lodges for adults only"
"Tree Houses are very safe with plenty of privacy."
"Book early as they have limited space and do sell out"
"We stayed in room three and it was great, sure they are all beautiful!"
"All the rooms appear to be very similar, the only difference being the distance from the main lodge."
