Most common wall sockets require 3 pin round or 3 square pin plugs. It is recommended to bring an international adaptor suitable with the above requirements.
Whilst on mobile safari and within many of the remotely located lodges and bush camps, permanent electricity is not available. Lodges and bush camps run on generator and solar power supplies, therefore using invertor systems to provide a 220v power supply to tents and main lounge areas. Guests are able to use these power supplies to charge camera batteries and smaller electrical goods, however note hair dryers, electrical shaving devices etc. will not be possible.
Internet and mobile phones coverage
Mobile phones coverage and internet connection is readily available in major towns and cities.
The majority of wilderness locations and lodges do not have mobile phone coverage or internet connection readily available to guests. A handful of lodges within the Delta and Savuti regions offer limited WIFI connection to guests, available either to use in your room only or alternatively within the main lounge area.
It is preferred that guests do not use satellite phones/ cellular phones and or Skype connection whilst in the bush lodges and camps to avoid disturbing other guests and using up the camps/lodges communication network – which is much needed to run the camp logistics and possible emergency situations. Lodges and hotels within Maun, Kasane, Victoria Falls and Livingstone offer internet connection and cellular phone coverage.
Whilst on safari, emergency contact between the safari operators and office bases in towns is via radio link and/or satellite phone connections. Botswana Holidays will act as an emergency local contact at all times during your safari and will assist when necessary.
