    We are from the USA. Do we need to bring plug adapters and/or voltage regulators to charge our cell phones, Kindles, use a hair dryer? Thank you.

    You do not need to bring plug adapters or voltage regulators to Jock Safari Lodge. They are all provided for you.

    I normally take a travel kettle for cups of tea in the room. Is there a kettle there already?
