What a beautiful place and again a ‘Wilderness Safari’ Lodge. The Lodge itself sits on the top of a hill and in the heat it was a bit of a climb. The accommodation was in the form of a very large thatched tent. It was really comfortable and despite the heat seemed fine – there is no air con in the place. There was a lovely shower room with an inside and outside shower. We ate extremely well at the Lodge and on the first night all the 34 guests were taken out to the bush for a magical meal under the stars. The staff, after they had served us a delicious meal, then sang for us in their clicking language, it was just lovely. Next day Breakfast was really good and very varied. We had an excellent guide who took us to see the Desert adapted animals and we had a really lovely morning, seeing lots of elephants and Hartmans Zebra amongst many animals. Sadly another pool with poor access unless you are very agile.
