Are safari camps right for us - sleeping in the cold.

Jump to last reply

Quick question please for you experienced safari goers. I am planning a trip, likely May 2012, to Botswana (or perhaps SA b c that may be a better fit for us...read on). Have been voraciously reading trip reports to help with planning. I have seen people complaining in their trip reports about how cold they are in the morning on the game drives, but have rarely seen people discuss how cold they were overnight when they were sleeping (or trying to sleep?) If someone could comment on how comfortable it is (or isn't) to sleep in a classic safari camp, when it is 40-45 degrees F in the night, it would help me decide if those sorts of camps would be right for us. In my younger days I camped, but only in the summer weather, never through nights that were that cold.
Thanks so much!
