Our Services

Top quality Accommodation

We have 7 rooms all with 2 beds: 1 double and a single bed. The rooms all have full en-suite bathrooms and daily laundry services are included in our rates. All food and liquor as well as meals and other beverages are also included.
South Africa uses 220V electricity. The use of converters and adaptors is necessary so its advisable to bring your own converters and adaptors.

Health

The Eastern Cape is Malaria and Bilharzia-free, so no vaccinations are needed prior to your safari. We advise you to obtain some sleeping tablets, as they will help get over the jet lag. Our water is safe for consumption.
You are advised to take medical insurance before you leave home. Most hospitals have emergencies and casualty wards and we have very good doctors and a hospital within a 25min drive.

Cash and Credit Cards

The currency in South African is measured in Rand and international credit cards are accepted at formal businesses. Value added tax is added on most goods and services, in most cases the V.A.T will be included in the price. Collect your receipts for your higher purchases so that you can claim back your V.A.T at any international airport before your departure. All VAT is included in your quoted price for your safari.
It is handy to keep some cash for tips. A tip is payment for personal service and revolves around how hard your PH / guide worked for you to make your hunt successful. Our guideline will be to work on 10% of the total hunt cost or $50 to $100 per day for your guide, $10 to $15 per day for your tracker / skinners and a $100 for the other kitchen and camp staff to share per hunter.
