You will often times need an escort from your tent to the dinning tent. The below picture explains why.
We spent 3 hours one afternoon waiting in the midday scorching heat for help to arrive after getting stuck in the mud. Our driver's radio didn't work and he was unable to call for help. No one from the camp knew where we were or that we were stuck. Our driver had to run several miles back to the camp to get us towed out. Apparently, this is not something you are supposed to do. He described how he needed to climb up trees several times to avoid approaching animals. We could still be out there if he ended up being the wrong predator's lunch.
