The tent I stayed in at Skukuza had a fan inside it that was the size of a turboprop and had the noise and thrust to match, ....... so at least you will have a little bit of air circulation, albeit similar to an inflating jumping castle :wink:

Good Afternoon

We stayed in No 4 in Letaba in December 2010. It was 42C during the day and it stayed like that during the
night in the tent, the fan just circulated the hot air. We sat outside on the veranda the whole night,
listening to the sounds and wishing for a breeze. The tents are a great experience :thumbs_up: but for this year December :D we booked aircon bungalows, the heat was just unbearable last year.

Remember lots of mozzie repelent.

I love the tents, all of them. If possible, put in a request for a tent at the fence at Croc Bridge. They are really special and very, very close to the fence.

Second this. Only two though, but both are great with the bushveld view they have.

I have stayed in tents at Punda, Tamboti, Letaba, Skukuza and Croc Bridge but my best experience was the tents at Punda. They have a great elevated view and are far away from all the other accommodation.

What is the best safari tent to stay in at Letaba when taking the view and shade into consideration?

Hi coisjvr
The best tents are Nos 4-5-6-7 and 8 which are along the fence which is patroled by animals day and night. The ablution block and kitchen are behind the tents. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Agreed! :thumbs_up:

Shade? We are only there in the early morning and late afternoon.

We stayed in a safari tent in July 2012 in Tamboti (tent number 3) for 7 nights ,cold but not unbearable, no creepy crawlies maybe because it was winter,we did hear something creeping around at night, might have been the honey badger or civet that are regular visitors, we are booked to stay in Letaba and Tamboti in Dec 2013, both in a safari tent again

DOOM in the Kruger :big_eyes: Isn't the Kruger about nature conservation? Why would you want to spray creepy crawlies with a Doom? Why not just try get them out of your tent by opening doors/windows? Or try picking them up with a dust scoop/piece of paper??

Have to agree with Tent Dweller here - Doom in Kruger to kill the insects :naughty: :naughty:

Perhaps you should look for another destination to visit with your Doom Sheenaugh-Lee
