Our Wonderful Wild Life

So we were having a little afternoon nap to clear the lunch time sleepy beer feeling and were suddenly woken by a huge splash and then lots of thrashing and squealing and squeaking from the river under our deck.

We ran to the edge of our tree house deck and the reeds were thrashing around but we couldn’t see anything . . .

I went out onto the lawn and a huge Cape clawless Otter came bounding out of the thicket towards me. He looked back at the thrashing and squeaking and hesitated a second but decided that the croc that had taken his mate was just too much for him and he loped on down the lawn. Stopped once or twice in uncertainty but had to keep going….

Look right ...

I'm going this way . . .

    I would like to apologise to Mark and all the extremely helpful, professional, fun loving staff for being so remiss in sending you an extremely belated …. Thank You for all the Fun & Excitement, and We Will Be Back Again and again and again …. well you get the message.
    Upon our late arrival back on the 1st February 2015 for just one overnight stop, we stayed for two and wished we had 13 or more days and nights to linger. We couldn’t alas, business in Zambia called. Like everybody else we were in mirthful hysterics just reading the sign posts on the way in, especially those infra dig ones for LandRover vs LandCruiser/every other car anecdotes. Our CampSite No. 4 was perfect as too the night African sounds and early morning hippo alarms of awakening. The camp dog too honoured us with his/her presence and stayed overnight with us and mornings by the river too. Our ritual early morning tea is always taken at the best view spot near our tent, which in this instance was right on the Kavango River bank. What added lustre to the already diamond find was actually meeting you Mark, and as if we could be any more impressed, we were, with your everything local and off the grid concept of Ngepi. What a dream, what realisation! Truly impressive on every note.
    Thank you once again, and heres (cheers) to our next visit and lengthy stay. Ros & David Lindley
