How safe are tented camps?

Are valuables safe here?

As far as valuables in tented camps, I have left all my camera's charging in my tent while having dinner elsewhere, also have left my computer during the days while on game drives.  The people that work there are very happy to have a great job and won't steal, I have not heard of anything happening in the area.  If per chance you offer a baseball hat to one of the employee's, he will ask you to write a note to the management that you gave the item to him or her.  That's how tight they are.
