Manager’s Report July 2014

Wild Photo of the Month With the seasons slowly changing, we greeted July with a smile, knowing that we are slowly moving towards spring. The landscape is still dry and pale brown, but there is nothing quite as beautiful as the bright colours we have around the lodge as all the aloes are decorated with bunches of yellow and orange flowers.

Manager’s Report February 2013

We’ve had a lot of cloudy days with high humidity, only to see the sun come out behind the clouds for a while, before the sky closes again for a quick thunder shower. But then again, if everything in life was predictable, how boring would that be? I mentioned...
