    I can strongly recommend a quant bed and breakfast.

    I guess it is kinda like asking how you avoid getting wet whilst swimming :P Ok, all jokes aside. By nature of camping, you will deal with material and humidity from your breath. Tent, sail, canvas anything alike, glass windows, anything other than brick, will have condensation issues. I have seen countermeasures with blankets, fan heater types/opening more windows(which gets special in winter), but simply, you just gotta dodge the droplets , in any product out there.

    BL beds thus far has not kept me awake cause of droplets of condensation. Span die seil stywer or put in extra poles to redirect the condensation, but I highly doubt you'll get rid of it any sort of condensation in ANY tent/trailer/caravan.

    Default BL444 : Mokala National Park

    Location : Close to Kimberley

    Like : camp very well maintained, Only 6 campsites around a waterhole, individual ablutions are fantastic and your own kitchen with fridge in to chill the extra iced teas this is a wonderfully relaxed camping environment.

    Dislike : nothing this is a gem! Would be even better with a few big cats in the park I guess

    Sjoe, Frik - die foto's is fantasties! Kan jy dalk jou opinie gee oor die kampplek by McDougall's? Op jou foto's lyk dit eersteklas (wat die uitsig betref, iedergeval), maar ek't al n paar kommentare raakgelees dat die fasiliteite daar baie vervalle is.

    Ek wil graag n draai daar maak, maar nie so vertroud met daardie geweste nie - watter maande moet ek liefs vermy om die wind vry te spring? Of is daar maar altyd n kans op wind en leef jy daarmee saam? Ek sou graag in die tweede helfte van Oktober daar wou aandoen.

    Beste SvenT,


    Jy het twee kanse om die draad 'n werklikheid te maak: geen en niks.
    Dit pas nie in by die "Mafia" se grooter prentjie nie.

    Ek stem nie saam met jou nie Frik. Gee SvehT se draad 'n kans. Ons wag self vir ons Boskriek en beplan om die suide van Botswana te gaan verken in Oktober. Na sy pragtige fotos wonder ek hoekom ons daarheen wil gaan as daar wel sulke ongerepte natuurskoon in afgeleë plekke in ons eie land is. Ek het die fotos al 'n paar keer deurgekyk en na Sanparke se inligting ook, wat ek nie sou doen as ek nie op die draad gaan kyk het nie! Wag maar dat daaie klomp Bush lapas terug is van hulle winter omswerwinge en hooplik ook so paar van "His Beuaty" met ons kom deel.

    FrikTJ, my experience so far has been that the community is strong, I feel there is a mod thread and a review thread, which both have been great up to now,

    What I would like to see and be involved in is a "photo" thread from owners, let's say a visually motivating thread

    If there are those not interested all well and good but I hope there are similar photo oriented people out there.

    I also saw you tried something similar in the past, although I had not seen it until recently... This thread may land up being mine alone but it will re-appear from time to time that much I promise

    October is kgalagadi, December is Kruger

    Having seen your photos please contribute further when you are on the road.
