Hamiltons is in a malaria area
and malaria tablets are recommended all year round (Please consult your doctor).
Comfortable light clothing, walking shoes, sun hats, sunglasses, sun-block, insect repellent and bathing suits.
During wintertime it is still warm during the day but it can become very cold on the game drives and at night.
It is advisable to bring warm insulated jackets.
Excellent stay. The accommodation needs a bit of refurbishment (bathroom plumbing); a mini bar in the room would be good. Good set up for dinners (own table) and meal service to tents. More off-road driving to get close to the game, i.e. saw lions but only from far.
