Flamingo normally has a moderate temperature but it is better to be well prepared. Hats, sunscreen and sunglasses are a must for both winter and summer, as the sun is harsh. A set of long, warm clothes is recommended, even for summer months, as the weather can change quickly and the evenings can sometimes get quite chilly. For the adventurous who would like to hike, sturdy hiking boots and a small backpack (for water and sunblock) are recommended.
Toiletries and medication are not provided by Flamingo. We suggest that you bring along a basic first aid kit, as well as any chronic or personal medication. Your first aid kit should include the following; painkillers, antihistamine pills, cream to relieve bites/stings, antiseptic cream/spray, plasters, Imodium and for fishermen we highly suggest Cataflam and Methiolate. Please note that this is just a guideline and is not necessarily everything you will need. Please ensure that you pack enough medication for a few days longer than your intended stay.
If you are traveling to Flamingo with a young child, please note that we do not supply cots and baby car seats.
It is advised that a headlamp, and spare batteries, are brought along as the generator does not run throughout the night.
Other items that could be brought by visitors include cameras, binoculars and electronic devices such as laptops and ipads.
