GILLIES & EXTRA HOUSEKEEPERS

BARBECUE / FIRE HAZARD
Only charcoal may be used for barbecuing (NO WOOD).
Please use the outside barbecue area provided for this purpose.
We request that you do not light fires in the barbecue areas during extremely windy conditions as the roofing material is highly flammable and could result in tremendous damage to the entire resort.
No mosquito burners, candles, paraffin lamps or open flames are allowed in the house!
Please be advised that the resort relies on EDM for power supply. Please ensure you bring along torches and battery-operated lights should EDM power go down.
The resort does have a backup generator that we operate when there is extended EDM power failures.
In the case of power cuts there will also be no water due to the fact that it works on an electric pressure pump. Please always have some spare water available for such times such as drinking, brushing teeth etc.
If you have any maintenance issues please report this to Tommy Schoeman +258 84 899 1517 as soon as possible so we can attend to it.
Please make sure the gas is OFF when the stove is not in use. If you need help with operating your stove you are more than welcome to ask the housekeeper who will assist you.
