Where I stayed
What I did
Very very basic facilities here which were in all honesty, pretty grim; no hot water and so many bugs! Literally billions of midges - at night you turn on the headlight and it looks like there is a blizzard. Covered myself in deet, which I am pleased to say worked...others weren't so lucky and are covered in bites.
View over the lake was incredible and evening saw an lightning storm of epic proportions, fortunately no rain.
In the late afternoon we headed to a plush safair lodge and I enjoyed a cocktail, some blue concoction called 'hippos dream', was actually pretty scrummy
A little too much sun caught today, particularly my arms...plenty of aftersun now applied. THink the deet is interfering with the sun screen I'm using, will see how it goes...
Only had a swift bottle of beer in the bar on site, place was pretty minging with all the bugs so had an early night...
