Has anyone taken a CPAP on a tented safari? I know the literature says electricity is by generator and cannot be guaranteed. I'm wondering whatr people who have been on this particular excursion have experienced in terms of when the electricity is on or off. (This would impact other things as well, such as the ability to recharge camera batteries or an electric razor or perhaps a curling iron.)

I'd appreciate any help or advice somebody might have on this question.

I took the OAT trip to Tunisia in November 2010 and there was no power in the tents even when the generator was running.  The  generator was also turned off at night and not turned back on until about 6:00AM.
