Was in Bushanga Plains, Botswana last year and painfully bitten by tsetse. The only thing that worked after the fact was rubbing the pulp of sausage tree fruit on the bites. Took pain out immediately. From then on travelled with the fruit of the sausage tree always in the truck and slices taken to room. The elephant dung was aromatic but seemed to keep them at bay

Don't wear dark or blue clothing of any kind. Wear light colors.

Skin-So-Soft? Really?
Wouldn't that be a nice solution!

Skin So Soft works for many. But you may need to reapply often.
