Usually, there are very few mosquitoes, but they and other bugs can occasionally be an issue, often without notice or a pattern. However, we do have insect repellent available. You are also encouraged to bring your insect repellent if you have a preferred brand.

Tents have netted windows that help keep mosquitoes and other bugs out. These nets, properly zipped and lights turned off inside your tent while you’re outside, will keep bugs at bay.

In our remote, rural location, there is also the chance you may see the odd spider, snake, frog or gecko, but these shouldn’t pose a risk to you. They are more afraid of you than you are of them. Our island is semi-secure and protected from local wildlife (except a couple of local pet cats and dogs), although you may encounter the odd cow or water buffalo as you explore the surroundings.
