Phinda Vlei, Exeter Dulini, Ngala tented mosquito nets?

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be staying at Phinda Vlei Lodge, Exeter Dulini Safari Lodge and Ngala Tented Safari Camp in September. Can anyone tell me if these lodges have mosquito nets to sleep under or do I have to bring my own?

very excited about trip.

Hi. They will all have mosquito nets. Actually the 'mossies' may not be too bad at that time of year, but you will not need to bring nets. Might be worth taking repellent though.

the mosquito net is attached the the four post beds at all these lodges. they hotel staff put them down at night when you are at dinner.

these are all pretty luxurious places. i have had the fortune of experiencing them.

I can only speak about Vlei. I actually don’t recall mosquito netting on the beds, but the sliding glass doors all have exterior screened doors, so if you want to keep doors open you can use the screen doors. The rooms also come with room spray and also those electric repellent systems with the little card which I actually use at home here in Hong Kong and which work very well. (Room has to be closed though to be effective; but turn it on when you go to dinner and close the doors, and then you can reopen the doors when you return if you want to sleep with doors open. Any bugs inside will have been killed in your absence and with screens in place you won’t have any more coming inside.) I agree that in September after the dry winter season the likelihood of mosquitoes seems small.

They will have any necessary precautions so you don't get bitten. Several months earlier in the season, I don't recall any mosquitoes at Phinda and I spent lots of time strolling through the sand forest.

Leave the netting at home and have a fantastic time in these wonderful locations.
