hi tanisha :D

I did dunes deltas falls overland trip which is part of your trip. I also did it in august /September . Camping in Africa is very safe and I enjoyed it. The delta part was in the Okavango delta was great . we camped in the delta it was a bit of bush camping. Other campsites we stayed in were pretty good with bathroom/shower facilities some with a swimming pool and bars . some of our campsites were at the watering holes in the game parks which were brill. It was hot during the day but at night it did get chilly. At the falls we upgraded to a permanent tent which was great. As it had a bed and after 3 weeks camping in Africa it was fantastic. It cost I think about 20 usd to upgrade well worth it. The Waterfront campsite is a nice area were we stayed near the falls. If you need any other info please feel free to ask. It was a great trip and I have lots of good memories even if my trip is the longer version of your trip. People join the group at various stages of the trip which is what you will be doing.

cheers :D

hi :)

You will be fine. Camping is pretty straight forward. The tents can be put up in 5 mins and we were pretty comfy. Pack light and don't forget your head torch. also bring a pair of flip flops for showers pretty handy . and enjoy it. sitting around the campfire having food and some drinks and a chat under the African sky is pretty awesome. and listening to the animals feed at the wateringhole. What else could you wish for. :D :D

cheers
