What I have read about Urikaruus is that the accommodation units are uncomfortably hot in summer and cold in winter. What will they be like during October?

@Elmar.
October tends to be fairly mild without any of the real extremes.
Days can be hot but because the units are in the riverbed and not constructed of bricks and mortar they tend to heat up and cool down fairly quickly.
Nights will be become pleasantly cool the later it gets.

Given the choice I would take the hottest day or the coldest night at Urikaruus and swop it for any day of the year anywhere else on earth. :lol:

Thanks Enrico. Well said! Now the only difficulty is to find availability.

Another problem with the Wilderness camps is that bookings are not only for couples but families or a group of friends may book. A small family will take 50 % of the accommodation and any more will be 75 - 100 % to one party. Therefore it can easily be that in 1 month time there will only be 10 - 20 reservations only for the 4 units over 30 days if each booking is for 3 days only.

If I want bookings at Urikaruus I need to book 2 cabins for the 3 of us. So this makes it even more difficult to get a place. Only camps that are available most of the time are KTC and Gharagab and if lucky Kieliekrankie, Bitterpan and Grootkolk.

How often does it happen that units are not fully utilize considering that single persons and families of 3/5 book. We should start a share a Urikaruus cabin thread. :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:
