Due to aircraft size, baggage is restricted to one small bag per person of 12kg. The informal dress code at Bloomfield Lodge means that travelling light does not normally cause any inconvenience.

Please ensure that you bring all items of a personal nature with you as lack of road access to the lodge means that regular supplies other than food and drink are restricted.


Daytime temperatures range from 26C to 31C for most of the year. Winter evenings (June to September) can be a little cooler. The main tropical rains fall during the hottest months from late December to March but are unpredictable, with some years wetter than others.
