Observation - Possible Limited Space During Peak Season

A heads-up, folks....Seems even at this early date there is limited space, especially, the smaller camps during peak summer months. Why?

Appears the 'Ebola scare' is putting off some who planned/booked to travel Nov, Dec & Jan to push their dates to July-Sep. And with many of the properties offering options for such client, these are the ones taking what would otherwise be available for new bookings during this peak period.

This, of course, depends on the property, but rather strange to hear 'no room at the inn' at this otherwise early date. And many of the properties aren't even accepting 'wait lists.'

At one time it would have been thought to be 'block bookings' by large tour operators for their upcoming group tours, though this year it's somewhat different due to some visitors already booked postponing to later dates.
