Water from the taps/showers in the guesthouse comes from a nearby bore hole and also from rainwater collected in the large tanks located outside the guesthouse, which are treated with chlorine and aluminium sulphate. These are limited sources which often run dry (in particular during the dry season). Please use water sparingly while washing, showering and brushing your teeth and make sure all taps are turned off after use.
The taps and showers rely on electricity to work. During power interruptions, the only taps that may have some water are those located low down on the wall in each of the shower cubicles. Hot showers will not be available – staff will organise for buckets with warm water to be provided, this should be mixed with cold water for showering. Buckets of water will be provided for flushing toilets.
