AT NALEDI, we want your wildlife safari to be perfect – and perfectly comfortable. So do consider the following Frequently Asked Questions, and our list of things to bring:

What should I wear?

  • We experience our warmer months from October through to April; if you’re coming in this period, bring light clothing such as shorts and short-sleeved shirts. For early morning and evening game-drives in our open vehicles, add a light jacket or fleece.
  • From May to September, we enter our cooler months.  Shorts and t-shirts will still suffice at midday, but be sure to pack some moderately warm items for the early mornings and evenings.
  • For all seasons bring comfortable outdoor walking shoes, plus sandals to wear within our lodge areas.

Is there any dress code for Naledi?

  • Our dress code at all meals is casual – shorts and sandals are perfectly acceptable.
  • For game viewing from a wildlife safari vehicle, neutral colours are preferable.
  • For game walks, neutral colours are essential.

Do also be sure to bring:

  • Swimming costumes for our refreshing swimming pools.
  • Sun block, sun hats, sunglasses and lip balm.
  • Binoculars and cameras, with spare memory cards and spare batteries – you may find yourself shooting a wealth of pictures or footage!
  • Mosquito repellent and malaria preventative medication – which you should discuss with your medical practitioner or travel clinic before your departure.

What is your level of malaria-risk?

  • Naledi is in a zone where there is a low risk of malaria. We would not, however, want you to take any chances, and again recommend discussing malaria preventative medication with your medical practitioner or travel clinic.

Is your tap water drinkable?

  • Yes, Naledi’s tap water comes directly from our private boreholes, and is entirely safe to drink. As a provider of luxury accommodation and services, we nevertheless supply our guests with plentiful bottled water at no additional charge.

Do I need travel insurance?

  • We always strongly recommend to our guests that they obtain comprehensive travel insurance. Your cover should include personal injury, death, and medical and repatriation costs in the countries you intend to visit, together with cover for loss of baggage and valuables, personal liability, delay, cancellation, curtailment, missed departures and legal expenses. If you suffer from any disability or medical condition you should disclose this to you insurers. Very importantly, if you plan to participate in sports or outdoor activities during your travel experience, participation is at your own risk, and it is your responsibility to obtain the relevant insurance. Special insurance may be required if you undertake any extreme or potentially dangerous activities (such as adrenalin or endurance sports). And remember – please do keep your insurance details with you while on holiday.

Will I be able to power-up/recharge my electrical devices?

  • Naledi’s lodges and suites are all fully electrified, and are also connected to backup generators. Our electricity voltage is the South African residential standard – 220/230 volts AC 50 HZ. While some of our suites have inbuilt plug-points for British and European plugs, we recommend acquiring a South African adaptor plug for your stay in South Africa. Suitable adaptor plugs can usually be bought at South Africa’s larger airports and travel/outdoor supply shops. Some US-made devices or appliances may also require a transformer – but of course, do please feel free to contact us beforehand about any electrical-related concerns that you might have.
