Thank you for your question. Mosquitoes are not a problem at the lodge year round. We do realise that this can be a concern for guests coming to Africa so all of our beds are fitted with mosquito nets and all of our rooms with mosquito repellents. However, this is for our guests peace of mind and not out of necessity. Kind regards, Intimate Places.
