FOR CAMPING IN THE WILDERNESS
We are trying to keep our wilderness as clean as possible and therefore want to throw away as little as possible. Please take all your rubbish home with you. Vegetable matter can be thrown into the black bin.
FREEDOM AND RESPONSIBILITY
We hope that you will feel free to thoroughly enjoy our wilderness. You can do anything and go anywhere as long as you take full responsibility for your (and others) safety and well-being by being careful and considerate of other people, creatures, plants and features sharing the wilderness with you. We ask our guests to respect the wilderness and not to collect plants or pick flowers etc and not to leave litter anywhere but in the rubbish bins. Our staff are an integral part of the development of Mutinondo Wilderness and are knowledgeable and helpful if you require directions, information or advice. Everyone in and around camp has a task to do. We don't employ "waiters and cleaners" and ask you all to help yourselves (and others), please keep the bar book up to date and clean up after yourselves. This will ensure a much better quality of life for everyone which we will all appreciate.
FIREWOOD AND WATER
Please respect these resources and don't waste them.
THE HOT WATER SYSTEM
Please do not put extra wood into the boiler, this causes it to boil and result in airlocks which require a lot of work to clear to restart the hot water flow.
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS AND REQUESTS
We thoroughly enjoy being surrounded by content customers. Please tell us as soon as you can if there's something we can do, or need to know to make your stay more comfortable. Catering is pretty versatile with reasonable notice. Please tell us if there are any special requirements within your group. (e.g. vegetarians, religious requirements, definite dislikes, allergies, requests for nshima, favourite dishes, low cal diets etc..
Campers can cook in the camp area or have meals from the restaurant. We don't offer a self catering service through the lodge kitchen.
