What sort of insects will I encounter in Africa?

Africa in general has a tropical climate; it is likely to encounter small insects and mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are usually present in the early mornings and evenings and the best way to deal with them is to keep arms and legs covered and use plenty of mosquito repellent.
In Tented camps and lodges, please always make sure to turn off the room lights at night as insects are attracted to light.
