This is how we were woken!
I did not even hear the staff deliver it.
All the trees at the lodge have labels.
A great(subtle) way to help with tree identification.
The landscaped gardens of the lodge
A view od one of the channels of the Chobe River from the deck
The main reception/lounge/bar area.
A view from the bar.
With hippo and crocodiles in the river,
their swimming pool is a safer option.
A view from the pool deck
it might not look “spectacular” from the exterior,
but the interior was a different story
Just to prove that we had settled in!
The lodge runs of generator power that is only available certain times of the day.
However, the bathroom offers a solar backup so that you do not have to ablute in the dark
The bedside lights are also solar powered.
From the outside looking in…
Apologies for the fact that the bed has not been made up.
Our next door neighbour…
A Giant Kingfisher.
This is how guests/ goods etc are transported.
This Little Egret was looking for breakfast.
The river and lodge foliage reflected in the dining room windows.
“Our” deck as seen from the main building.
Thanks to Ralph, Dawn and all their staff for making our brief stay special.
