Hi all. We are thinking of spending a couple of nights in Spekboom camp in June. Would you advice this? How cold would it be? If we loaded up with extra hot water bottles and blankets would we be ok?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

MARIE

Hi there Marie

We were in Spekbook last year June/July. We would say go ahead. It was cold, but not too bad. There were extra blankets under the beds and we did not find the need for hot water bottles.

The camp is spread out and its quite a walk to the ablutions. The night time visits to the bathrooms were very cold, and it was very wet when we were there, so carried in lots of mud with us into the showers.

Due to the cold and wet, a maximum of one other tent was taken during out time there, so it was creepy as well.

The tents do a great job of keeping out the cold, and the extra blankets provided were enough.

We would love to do it again.

So, bring a good rain coat and extra clothes in case yours get wet.

You will enjoy it, even though it might be cold and wet, of that I have no doubt.

Thanks Leaping Lizards. I am sold. So much so that I am not only booking it - I am going to stay there an extra night!

Thanks again - I cannot wait!
