Unfortunately we picked probably the worst time to arrive in January just as the cyclone hit the region. Roads turned to rivers and we had to be reloacted several times, the first time due to concerns that we may get washed away and the second night the elephants had destroyed the fresh water pumps. As it turned out the second night the water did reach the mattresses and unfortunetly there was a lot of damage throughout the lodge.
Even so the troops put on a brave face and we still went out on three game drives even though accompanied by a lot of torrential rain. We did manage to see a host of animals, bird live and the destruction caused by the cyclone. The chef and his staff still provided first class meals under very difficult circumstances and the wines were also excellent. I am sure that when it is dry it is truly magnicficent place.
Many thanks to the Manager Victus and his wife for helping to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I hope the baby squirrel they were caring for has survived and will soon be ready for release. To Drieff and his trekker many thanks for the effort they put in to locate as many animals as possible, given the terrible weather conditions
