But be careful about camping under trees - which are food for some animals and home for others. I have two tails to tell....
Camping at Ngwethla Pan in Hwange, Zimbabwe, we put the tent up under a tree - assured by a guard that it was "not liked by Elephants" - only to be woken in the night by a full grown Ellie Bull stretching up above us. We legged it and hid behind a concrete table. Amazingly, the tent was left untouched but there were foot prints all around it.
At the new camp in Chobe, Botswana, my in-laws put their roof tent under one of the big riverside trees. All was OK until sundown, when a large troop of baboons decided to take up residence above. They stopped barking at about midnight, with the occassional terrifying noise thereafter. The residence of the tent were awoken in the morning by what sounded and felt like warm summer rain dropping upon them - and this was in the winter!
