Assegai Rest – Covid 19 Safety Protocols

The safety and wellbeing of our Guests and Staff is our priority. We have always taken pride in the standard of hygiene, cleanliness, and sanitisation which our Guests have always been accustomed to at Assegai Rest. However, in response to the current situation we are enforcing even more stringent measures in line with the recommendations of international and national Health Authorities.
Both the Farm-house and the TiPi accommodations are self-catering and are situated far apart from each other to ensure absolute privacy with no / limited interaction with other Guests. To alleviate the risk of transmission, stringent social distancing etiquette will be implemented between guests and staff to reduce person-to- person contact.
