Wilderness Savari Savuti - Electricity for Camera Recharge

Is there a electicity to recharge our camera batteries at Savuti?

At other Wilderness camps - can you recharge while you are at the camp? Or can you only recharge when out on game drives. Have heard the generators are so noisy - they do not run while guests are in camp. Is this correct?
Thanks

At the WS camps we stayed in we gave our charger unit to the camp manager who plugged it in during the day when we were out on drives.

We made sure we took three battery units - one to be in use, one spare to take with us on the drive and one being charged at any time.

Good idea. In our tent at Savuti they had a convertor to 120 volt so my husband plugged the charger in. Unfortunately it didn't convert and burnt it out. No more video pics. Bad planning on our part.

Thanks for the reminder - will need to also take a transformer.

Sprig - could you recharge the batteries while you were in camp or only when guests were out on drives?

For a personal question ...Does Savuti have flush or long drop tiolets? Have seen different info on this topic. I am hoping for flushers.
