    We are going to stay at the Hide towards the end of July and my husband wants to stay at the Dove's nest. It sounds romantic and super exciting but also terribly cold (we live in Florida, US) and a bit scary. I'm thinking of bringing my ski jacket just based on some of the descriptions from people who stayed there in July/August last few years. Can you describe it a bit more? any suggestions as to what to bring there? gloves? boots? Also, based on the descriptions, all we would have as "protection" is a two way walkie talkie radio. Is the place relatively secured from wild animals coming inside? (like snakes?or wild cats?) I am thrilled to stay there just want to keep my imagination in check as to what to expect from a tree house in middle of an African park. Thank you for any insight and advise.
