Things to Note about Airbnbs

  • Prices indicated do not include service charges, meals, and transport. Most of these places are on a self-catering basis and if they do have a chef or access to fresh produce from their gardens, you would have to pay extra.
  • All properties offer essentials such as bedding, towels, soap, and kitchen essentials such as utensils, cooking pots, spices, and gas cookers. Pack personal items, food, and drinks.
  • Most, if not all of these properties are located off-road therefore a 4WD vehicle or a car with high ground clearance would be best. It would also be better and easier to travel during the dry season for the same reasons. Make sure you call ahead to ask about the state of the roads and to ask for directions.
  • When visiting Airbnbs be mindful and keep the place in the state you found it. So pick up after yourselves and do not litter. Remember that it is someone’s home after all.
  • Photos put up on this post are sourced from the listings on Airbnb, I do not own them.

    Hello I’d like to know for example if an airbnb its 120$ per night which hosts around 4pple and therefore that’s 3 thousand per person
    What if we are not 4 we are two how are paying that

      5 December 2021 at 3:20 pm

      Hi Ilham, thanks for stopping by. Most Airbnb homes are priced for use of the entire home per night and not per person. In your case, you would pay 6,000 per person.
