Using Pit Laterines on African Safaris

YOU ASKED


It is the first time I will be traveling to Africa and I am scared of using pit latrines. Are there tips on how to use the pit toilets?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES


For road safaris in Africa, using of pit latrines is nearly inevitable. Tips on how to use a pit latrine during your safari.

Use the wash room in your hotel before you start off for long safari drives. This way you may be able to hold on until you get to the next lodge or keep your visit to the pit latrines to the minimum.

You need to be as comfortable as possible when using the pit latrine. Therefore hand over your bags and jackets to people traveling with you on the safari. Be careful not to leave your belongings unattended.

Whatever contraption has been put up as a door latch, give it a test and hook it up properly. You can't afford to have the door flying open half-way your operations.

Take your own toilet paper. Though some curio shops along the African safari routes provide toilet paper, it is not guaranteed. No harm in realizing that you didn't need it than needing it and you don't have it.

Finally after using the pit latrine wash your hands thoroughly preferably with liquid soap. There may be a running tap or a water tank outside the toilet, if not use your bottled water.
