Although Bayete is situated in a malaria-free environment, we still do have mosquitoes. The water in which al the water activities is done, takes place in a natural farm dam. It has a constant in and outflow of fresh water, and is according to our records Bilharzia free. All Bayete qualified field and adventure guides present the activities. All the activities are done on a “challenge by choice” concept, meaning that a learner will not be pushed to do something he/she is uncomfortable with. The learners will be motivated to participate in the activities.
Safety is of the utmost importance, and activities are presented in such a way to keep the learners safe. Programs are organized and presented in such a way that each learner will have the chance to participate in all the activities. All activities are done at own risk. No responsibility will accepted for; damage to private property, burns, or any injuries. The staff of the visiting school must attend to the minor injuries of the learners. Bayete staff will tend to injuries that are more serious. If it is serious enough for a doctor to have a look, the person will be transported to the nearest doctor, in Modimolle (Nylstroom) 12 km away.
