MAKORA QUEST SAFETY

SAFETY RULES & PROCEDURES

Safety is our main priority, as part of our standard routine our clients will receive the safety briefing and a short briefing on paddling the canoes before the trip begins. Our guides are all qualified in handling of medical emergencies; communication is by radios and/or mobile phones.

>

Always wear your lifejacket and ensure that it is properly secured.

>

Only under exceptional circumstances will your guide request that you remove your life jacket.

>

Always secure your valuables with the rope supplied inside your canoe.

>

Please advise your guide of any medical conditions you may have.

Apply sunscreen and wear a hat to protect you from the sun.

Although a leisure activity, to avoid dehydration, ensure that you drink sufficient water.

Your guide will dictate the pace of the trip.
