Our camp for the night was the Etotongwe Lodge, our oasis so to speak and a bloody good place to park up for a while. What made it for me was that it was obvious that there was a high level of pride shown in the running and upkeep of the lodge. It was neat, tidy, clean and well cared for and not a dust bowl with manky facilities that seemed to be the norm in Namibia.
It didn't take me long to wash the day's road dust off with a dip in the refreshing pool ..... and you wouldn't read about it, it was with an ice cold pint of "Tafel Lager" in each hand - it's great to have a birthday and your new travel mates running beers to you.
After dinner that night, I got a suprise birthday cake consisting of 50 cans of Tefal and an LED torch as a candle for me to blow out - I was tickled pink by it all.
