For me to enjoy the hunt I need a good nights sleep, so some form of a decent bed is necessary. A daily shower makes life smell better too. I have been in a permanent tented camp and enjoyed it. I don't care about 5 star accommodations but I need a certain level of comfort to be at my best. I'm 62 now. When I was 30 it was a different story. Then I didn't have the $$ hunt Africa........
