    They do not function optimally. Me, I dislike warm beer and defrosted meat.

    Rather warm meat. Then you can (read must!) have a massive braai and feast!

    Warm beer? Well.... I'd rather try to molest a ratel....

    Don't care much about meat, warm or other wise. But deprive me of my wine with of ice on a hot evening and a ratel will seem like a sick kitten compared to moi

    Looking back at my visit I agree...it is terrible there. You have to make a fire to cook your own food, sleep on top of your car in a canvas box and all you see is bush. One has to rely on the sun for power to keep the beer cold.
    One doesn't even hear a Television or any music. Sometimes the lions and elephant make such a racket one cannot even sleep...
    The only entertainment is a wood fire and glass of Ireland's finest triple distilled...

    With the solar panels and 2 battery packs, I left with 2 full batteries after 6 days and never had warm beer or defrosted meat...and it was a scorcher...

It takes up a lot of room so we might be packed to the roof but I'm guessing its a necessity?
    Well, Mopani is very close by. So if you have a proper cooler box, you can stock up with lots of ice as required. Even better than we had in the good old days!

    That is why we have our own NL Weekender and a couple of 100+ AH batteries with solenoid charging from alternator and small solar panel too boost.
    NOTHING worse than warm beer ,,,,, de-frosted meat can be handled if not de-frosted like eons ago - otherwise known as "aged" or "matured".
    But TOO matured or aged = NOOOOO.

    Not quite perimeter view straight up, but you can walk the 5m to the fence.
    To the bottom right (of the picture) you have the manager's housing, but it's some distance off.

    5 days ..Take your National Luna 90 Litre Expedition Fridge Freezer Combo plus 2 x 80 W Solar panels ..We go 2 weeks plus at a time ..and that works fantastically. The panels charge the Battery pack throughout the day so we are NOT under stress of having to go on a game drive just to charge Freezer..I havent modified the Hilux at all electrically ..Bog Standard

    Shocking, absolutely shocking.

    Good red wine should be drunk at room temp, your fridge should never be lower than 18C
