We are exempted for bow as well as rifle hunting.
Eskom power is not available at Kolobe but electricity is provided by a generator generating 220 volt ac during the day and evenings when needed. When the generator is not running at night, a 12 volt battery with inverter system allows our guests to have 220 volt lights in the lounge, kitchen, lapa, rooms and bathrooms. A "donkie" which is a geyser heated by fire supplies us with warm water. An electric geyser is also available when the generator is running.
