Default Roof mounted tent????

Hi Guys

I have a 2006 Forester X. Camping in Botswana and other places in Africa might lead to some encounters with big cats and things like hippos and stuff. Much better to be in a roof tent.

Do you know what the roof load capacity of my car is? My wife and I weigh a combined 130 kg. Add 40 kg for a tent and suitable mounting and you have 170 kg.

Surely this is not too much to ask of the roof?

What is your opinion?
