Yes, and we highly recommend you to arrive at least one day before the safari starts. If you have not been diving for some time, we suggest that you consider even 2-3 days to settle in, go on 3-4 dives to get confident again and to make sure your equipment is all working fine. Also on the evening when the safari ends, it is always nice to have a room waiting for you, where you can have that nice shower and then relax at the resort bar or restaurant.
