And here’s my pool…

The local wildlife have their own pool in the background. At breakfast time there were impala, warthogs, countless birds with colourful beaks, and oryx.

The hotel information booklet in my room has the usual stuff about laundry and fire alarms, but also a section on what to do in the event of a snakebite.

The camp provides these three essential in room amenities:

  1. Mosquito repellent
  2. Bug spray
  3. An air horn for use in “serious emergencies”


Dinner last night was kudu steak, followed by a glass of Amarula over ice while seated by the fire pit and watching the antelope at the water hole, marred only by the effing loudmouth Swiss tourist who talked nonstop for three hours while his companions occasionally said “yeah, uh huh, really…” One of those arseholes who thinks every silence will be improved by his voice.

STFU and enjoy this incredible environment! 

Thankfully today I can’t hear him and anyway this place is too amazing to care.
