Dress Code

Parts of the activities take place over some ground which can be uneven. Guests are requested to wear comfortable clothing and sensible walking shoes and to ensure that children wear shoes at night if walking out in the gardens.

Bags, backpacks and bulky camera bags must be locked in your vehicle or stored in one of our lockable cabinets during the activities as they may not be taken with during the activities.

Please consider bringing a hat or cap along for sun protection because the sun can be quite hot during summer. A light windbreaker is also good to include, especially for the afternoon as it can get quite chilly once the sun goes down.  It is recommended to bring a warm jersey or pullover when dining in the boma. Headlamps will be provided for the Forest Night Experience.
