    Default Baviaans in the winter - how cold?

    How cold does Baviaans get around this time of year at night?
    Is camping still an option, or is a chalet a must?

    Ive done both, having a chalet with a fireplace is much more comfortable.

    In my youth I lived there (Grade6), and it did get cold in winter some time, once the school (run by my gradfarther "oom Poon") only having 7 pupils was closed for a day or two due to snow and it being too cold for the kids to travel or be in school, though I think this does not happen that often

    Think as with normal winter camping if you geared for it it should be fine .

    I will tell you around 17 July, in the middle of winter. We will however stay in a chalet though.

    There is a weather "station" at Studtis. Maybe you can get averages for the month you want to go?

    We really enjoy the Baviaans in the winter, but camping is a Big no for us.

    Temperatures we have experienced every time in June-August is 0deg down to -3deg at the coldest we have experienced. Daytime temperatures can still reach in the 20`s however.

    We tried camping once during winter, even with all the correct tents & sleeping bags, it was just too cold.
