          We will be there in winter. End of July. Can someone who has been there in winter tell me about how cold it is in the room. I am concerned as it's all open and it will be too cold. Showering I assume will be a quick one!! My girlfriend booked this for us as she lives in Joburg but I am worried it won't be enjoyable sleeping and showering etc as it's too cold. Could someone please tell me about their experience there in the winter months. Thank you. Donna.
