Weather
It has been quite warm these past couple of days and the heavy weather from earlier this month has cleared up. Soft westerly winds have picked up and guests and staff alike are finding it most pleasant. Some fog was present on some mornings but it usually cleared up between 9:00 and 10:00 each morning.

Wildlife and Landscape
The desert-adapted elephants have moved far away from camp towards the Twyfelfontein area. The most likely cause of this is the water scarcity in the area. Guides have had to search far and wide to find them, doing all they can to please our guests.

We received lots of bird-lovers this month, many who were in search of our endemic species such as Ruppell’s korhaan, Ruppell’s parrot, dune lark and Damara red-billed hornbill.

The landscape is looking very dry at the moment and a lot of the wildlife has moved off including our regular wildlife like red hartbeest, oryx and springbok.

Guest Comments
“Sad that we only stayed for one night – loved the architecture.” Renier

“The best staff ever. Very friendly and helpful.” Robert

“Elephant walks with Abner. The pure fun of the stay. Learning more about the “CLICK” language.” Deione

“We were very pleased to found the flowers on the bed when we entered the room. We really did not expect this and we really loved the hot water bottles for the beds as it was a “chilly” night.” The honeymooners

Camp news
A warm round of applause to Michael, Abner and Boetie for the praises they received from our esteemed guests this past month.
