    I was there a couple of years ago in April of 2013 and had a great time. I was considering going back to South Africa during the first week or two of December and wondering what the weather would be like then--would it be too hot?

    The camp itself was great. Rustic, but with great guides and staff. You really won't even miss the electricity. When we checked in, I check the time using my cell phone, and the camp manager mentioned, that there will be no need for that here--no cell phone reception, or electricity.

    The cabins are elevated off the ground and have half walls. The beds and linen were comfortable. It was April then, and it got cool at night, but I was fine sleeping in long underwear and the blankets. I think as it gets colder in the winter months, they will bring hot water bottles as well. The managers will wake you up in the morning before the game drives and there is a lot of coffee and hot chocolate. It would warm up during the day and I would shed layers and while hanging out at the camp between drives mid-day, I was often wearing shorts.

    We stayed three nights. When we arrived, the camp was full and by the time we left, on the last morning drive, we were the only two left. It was great for personal attention, but it was also fun to have the other people in the camp there as well.

    It is the only safari/game reserve, I've been to, but there was a mother/daugher in our group from Namibia and a couple from the UK who had been at multiple safari's before and were amazed the amount of wild life were seeing. We got very close to lions etc. Great for photo ops. You asked about birds and while were driving or stopped, our guide did point out quite a few birds, but I will admit I didn't pay all the much attention to the birds.

    If you have a set of binoculars, they would be handy, I think. We didn't have any along and we were fine though.

    Does anyone have information on what a safari would be like in December there? I was thinking about visiting again and combining with another game area in Africa. Where would you suggest combinging with? Last time we did the three days at Mesthla and then spend the rest of the time around Capetown and the wine country around there.
