Amakhala - Woodbury or 1920s tented camps?


We are going to Amakhala in three weeks and I'm debating which of the tented camps to stay in.

The 1920s camp includes a walking safari and a trip into Shamwari.

Woodbury doesn't have either of those - BUT it looks a tab more comfortable and seems to have slightly more 'infrastructure' and covered common areas which I am thinking might be a good idea at this time of year with it being a bit chilly at night. I know I am not getting the 'luxury' experience at either - which is just fine by me but I don't want to be cold and wet ; )

Is a game drive in Shamwari worth a little more discomfort for a few days....?

No discomfort at all at either, Quartermain’s 1920 Camp is fantastic there are just 3 tents, although they are tents they have en-suite facilities.

It is run by a husband and wife team Riaan and Julie, Julie came to South Africa from Exeter in the U.K. on a vets course and never went home they are great hosts and you will have a wonderful time.

The weather here should still be mild and I doubt there would be much if any rain.
