Other Useful Tips
VISA- Depending on which country you reside in a visa will more than likely be required. You can either obtain this before you travel or alternatively a visa on arrival is also possible. The process can be slow at the airport. If you are obtaining the visa on arrival you will be required to pay for it in USD(other currencies are also accepted). There are two machines in the visa on arrival hall that will scan your passport and take your photo. You can fill in the forms here electronically. The machine then prints you a ticket to take to the desk where they can process your visa.This is the quickest way to do it.
The electric in our village is solar powered. There will always be lighting at the tree house. Charging sockets can be provided on request so you can recharge your phone, laptop etc. Alternatively we have power at the family home, I will gladly charge your items there.
If you need it wifi is also available at our home.
