          Hi, I've booked to stay here in Feb but I'm having second thoughts as I get bitten/ attract mossies or anything similar. I react badly to bites & don't want to ruin my holidays as this is my first leg of the trip. We've booked the Safari Tent. I'm now thinking to change to a villa but they don't have screens either. Any suggestions? Are there a lot of insects all day or after sunset?
