I do not remember where the book stops, but I don't think it includes the time when Campbell Scott took over.

The Southern African winter lasts from approximately late May/early June - late August/early September - they have a very short winter but it varies according to the region and from year to year. I have experienced very cold, wet and windy daytime conditions in April, for example, in the Cape region, whilst at other times I have 'roasted' in the Kalahari during the day in April.

However, in both areas, I have woken up to sub-zero temperatures which lasted until almost midday, at which time the temperature can soar to as much as 30c.

It really depends upon which region, or area, you are staying in - mountanous areas can be much colder/wetter in the early morning but can heat up much faster and, the further north you are, the less likely you will experience extreme cold weather although it will be very dry.

Most of the animals seen on the cams will make it through the winter, if only because the Game Farms and lodges have 'artificial' waterholes and put out feedstuffs and mineral licks in order that the animals can survive.

Most rain falls between October and March. So the dry season has started. Usually there won't be any more rain before October or November.
The animals are adapted to the climate but if there isn't much rain during the rainy season, it can be difficult for some individuals to survive during the dry season. I don't know if the last rainy season was a good one or not.

Re. temperature: at the moment days are still warm but the nights can get cold with a temperature just above 0 C / 32 F.
