I'm going on safari Aug. 23-September 5. Can anyone confirm whether tsetses are less of a problem during these months? I heard my biggest problem will be Tarangire and I should be ok at Ngorongoro and the Serengeti.
I have a head net, a hat and bandanna soaked in permethin and plan on spraying my clothes with permethin before I depart.
I've also heard ankles were an especially attractive area for tsetses so I'm going to find a couple of heavy pairs of socks and saturate them with permethin as well. I may use off wipes for mossies but know that it doesn't have any effect on tsetses. I did order something called Skeeter Beater, a natural repellent that some say has limited success with tsetses.
Any other suggestions? Should I mostly be concerned about Tarangire?
