Keeping Cool

Unread post by badprop_za » Fri Dec 02, 2016 2:12 pm

Afternoon to all, hope you all is well on the Friday-afternoon.

So, if all goes well, 2pm in 2 weeks my camp site will be sorted at Berg-en-Dal and I am busy with my first proper drive. :dance: :dance:

With it being December and all, I was wondering how you guys keep cool in the evenings in the park. Last time I was in Kruger in December was 2005 in a 3-man tent. :D

Current plan is to take along a fan to keep the family semi-cool while sleeping.
Why do time fly when you are having fun?

KNP - May'14 done and dusted :cry:

KNP - 14 Aug'15 to 21 Aug'15 done and dusted :cry:

KNP - 16 Dec'16 to 27 Dec'16 :dance: :dance:

Lucky lucky you and family!!

Fan is a must - you will need it to blow on your during the night and to sit next to during the day. Cheap spray/mist bottles filled with cool water to spray oneself down with during the day and at night really help one cool down.

Lots of iced water/drinks.

Choose shade to pitch your camp under. Check that it will be afternoon shade; especially if one sets up in the morning, or on an overcast day.
