Times are a changing!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note on the changing of drive times. As we approach summer the drive times change to coincide with the cooler periods of the day, when animals are more likely to be moving around.

Thankfully the loose connection that was found and fixed on the Ganda seems to have resolved the problem of drives ending earlier than planned, so the drives should be back to the normal 3 hours!

This change will occur from the morning drive of the 26 October and the times are as follows:

Morning drive will be from 05h30 until 08h30.

Afternoon drive will be from 16h00 until 19h00.

With the drive overlapping dusk we may have chance to see nocturnal creatures like porcupines, bushbabies or even an aardvark!


In case you missed the fantastic traditional dancing we had the privileged of joining at the lodge last night, here is the link to the YouTube video, thanks to Muttluver!

    Thank you for the update, and I did miss the live tribal presentation. Was very disappointed that I missed the “surprise”! I saw the pictures but a video…..very nice of you to think of us who were unable to watch. You always think of everything! Thanks again. Regards to all Joan

    Thanks Joan, the video was taken by one of our viewers Muttluver. It was brilliant to have the link to the video to share with everyone!

    Don’t thank you enough but did want to add to those who are grateful for your love and enthusiasm that makes us enjoy even more all that comes to us from your special part of the world. The “dancers and music”, beautiful responses from visitors brought tears this morning. What “treasures”!
