Bugs

Generally speaking, in the dry season, bugs aren’t bad, but mossies do love fresh blood! Please bring repellent and antihistamines. During the rainy season, the bugs are bad – even for us!

Are you guaranteed to see wildlife / catch fish?

Expeditions are to places where we have found and observed wildlife before (that’s why we keep going back!). It must be remembered that the “wild” in “wildlife” is precisely what makes it so special and specific animal sightings can never be guaranteed. However, the biodiversity of the area is so rich that all visitors go home with special memories, experiences and have the brag photos to prove it!
