precautions whilst on safari such as covering exposed skin during the
early morning and early evening with mosquito repellent .

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.
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.
