We had a wonderful time at Mundulea.

The camp is simple but very relaxing & to spend so much time with Bruno was truly a privilege. He is an amazing person not only for what he is doing at Mundulea but for the way he is doing it based on good scientific evidence a lot of which he has developed himself in conjunction with academic biologists. He is a magnificent host & guide & we were lucky enough to have him to ourselves for most of our visit. He seemed to understand the flora & fauna at a deeper level than any other guide we have met. Walking with him was a rare pleasure.
Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer….

Mundulea is pure Africa. It's a bush camp, and you spend all your time walking in the bush, tracking animals, seeing lots of animals, going to their amazing waterhole, sitting round the camp fire, and eating simple delicious food. This is adventure, not luxury. Having said that, the tents are very well equipped, and the beds comfortable. The tents have outdoor bathrooms, which are open to the bush and all the animals.
The leopard in the camp was an extra attraction !

Hi Bruno, a bit late in emailing but a quick thanks from Rosi and I for a really enjoyable few days – thanks for making us so welcome . It was great to see you again and a relief to learn of the Tilly hat position : stops the guilt after all this time !
Delighted to see the immense progress you have made with Mundulea , such a difference to 10 years ago…
All the best for the coming years , I am sure things will continue to thrive – given the right blend of hard frost and ''lucky'' lightning strikes.
Kind regards

Ali and Rosi.

Hi Kate
Hope you are well.
Just thought I would pass on some great feedback from Heufers who stayed at Mundulea recently:
"In the end we went to Mundulea and you did not exaggerate when you praised Bruno. He is indeed an excellent guide, an inspiring conservationist and a really friendly guy. We loved every moment, especially the fact that we walked every day and were really part of Bruno's experience. We could have stayed much longer if we had the time."
Kind regards

They wrote to us about their stay, saying:

For us Mundulea was by far the highlight of our stay in Namibia. But it wouldn't necessarily be the case for everyone.

Mundulea is a private game reserve created by Bruno Nebe. Accommodation is set within a small tented camp, with its own waterhole. There were a total of 6 guests, including the two of us, during our stay. The only activity (other than talking, eating, drinking, and sleeping) is walking in the reserve, expertly guided by Bruno. Tommy stays behind to cook the most delicious meals over an atmospheric open fire, one of many highlights being the daily fresh, home-made bread….

What staying in Mundelea gives its very lucky guests is an intense, in-depth, understanding of how wild game and its environment, the whole integrated chain of life, operates, from the termites, beetles, guinea fowl, snakes, up to the predators.
This was a uniquely powerful experience for us - it might not have the same appeal for others. You may not see a lot of animals or being able to tick boxes on the number of different species seen.

For example, we didn't see leopard, except a hazy dark outline at dusk at our waterhole, but we did hear the leopard call (a distinctive, rasping, sawing sound) all night 5 minutes (or less ) from our tent and the next morning we followed the tracks of the leopard female, and her companions from just outside our camp. Plus we just avoided tripping over a languid black mamba (Obviously Bruno saw it well in time, a few metres ahead of us).

Dear Bruno,

We are now home and readjusting to everyday life.
The purpose of this email is simply to say that our days with you were the highlight of our trip; we both thought Mundelea was marvellous and Sandwich was good fun.
Of it all, the very simple moment when the warthog family snuffled their way upwind towards us is perhaps my favourite photo of my memory: a real bit of Africa. The scrambles up the outcrops were good too, but the truth is that we will have to return when the weather is right. We hope to do so.

Wonderful things have and are happening at Mundulea…. Anyway, I just wanted you to know we loved it. It was easily the best camp we visited.
With our warmest greetings,
Kit

This is where we had a proper safari experience. I love Bruno, he is the coolest man I have ever met. If his philosophy for conservation could be taken up across Africa , we would see the conservation issues being resolved. We walked and walked, we clambered, duck and dived. We sat on top of rocky outcrops watching the sun go down and giraffe moving across the landscape. This is a little piece of heaven.

You need to do your own washing or go smelly, you have salad for lunch and meat and veg for dinner, and thankfully there is no dreaded WIFI, but I would go back in a heartbeat. The bed is comfortable, this was where I slept the best, the shower is powerful and hot and plentiful. The chat is constant , interesting , challenging and yes educational.

I loved loved loved Mundulea.

Dear Bruno

.... Very many thanks for giving us such a wonderful time whilst we were with you – your breadth of knowledge added immeasurably to our enjoyment. We will have many happy memories including that terrific, and sometimes distinctly hairy, trip to Sandwich Bay for our private performances from the terns and the dune lark; the welwitschia drive into Damaraland; Mundulea of course with our walks and poo lectures and Tommy's cooking; and eight rhinos at one time in Etosha.

So thank you so much for making us feel so welcome, for looking after us so well, and for giving us so much fun – the last few days just didn't feel the same. We wish you every success with the Reserve and hope that this year's rains do not disappoint.

With our very best wishes

We have been on many safaris and cannot count how many guides we have had, but no one nearly as knowledgeable as Bruno. It is a special experience to walk with him.

Mundulea is a place for nature lovers. The hides in front of one's tents allow one to get very close to the game. Accommodation in tents is suitably rustic and perfectly comfortable with luxurious-feeling duvets and an attached bathroom with flush toilet, shower, sink, horns for hanging one's towel over and a piece of stone to act as counter space.

Food is quite good with outstanding nutty bread cooked over a bush fire. Be aware that, although Mundulea is expensive, it is not a luxury lodge but a wonderful experience for people who want an extremely knowledgeable guide and really love being "in the bush."

Mundulea is private game reserve owned and run by Bruno Nebe. Bruno Is perhaps the best guide we've had in Africa. At the end of our 4 days we felt we'd just had a fascinating course in Namibian ecology, geology, and wildlife. We had the great fortune of being the only guests for our 4 nights here. This is a walking camp and we really enjoyed our walks. One morning we walked to another waterhole which was very busy with a good variety of animals and birds. There is also a waterhole at the camp with hides and we saw quite a variety of animals there too.

The camp is simple but very comfortable. Food was very good and more the style of home cooking which we enjoyed. A bonus was a porcupine who came to visit us at dinner time most nights.

Our stay here was exceptional. Mundulea is a very special place and we feel privileged to have spent 4 days here.

Dear Bruno and Kate,

I want to thank you both for my family's wonderful experience at Mundulea with Bruno, Tommy, and the plant and wild life. It was very moving to see the animals close up and luxurious to stay in the relaxed bush camp with so much personal attention, such good food, pleasing spaces and objects, and hot water(!). Our morning at Mundulea's large waterhole, with the great variety of animals, was one of our best experiences in Africa, and I loved my several hours alone watching the animals at the camp's water trough from the hide while my son and husband were out walking with Bruno one afternoon. We all enjoyed getting out of the car and walking and all we learned from Bruno.


We very much enjoyed our stay in Etosha following Mundulea. Seeing three rhinos communing, one mother and child and another adult at Halali's waterhole our first night, was a deep and new experience. The slowness of their motions and what seemed their affectionate communication was unexpected for me.

The Okakeujo waterhole was amazing. We saw a herd of breeding elephants there just an hour after we arrived, with the baby elephants playing under their mother's huge bodies. Also plenty of rhinos. We also managed to see three adult lions --- after waiting and watching at Rjietfontein --- we learned they had been seen there in the siting book (thank you for the tip Bruno). But we missed Bruno, and not having knowledgeable rangers on the spot to answer our questions, as we do in U.S. national parks. …
I will write a review of Mundulea on Trip Advisor, perhaps not until I return home to my computer. Please feel free to quote from my email on your websites.

Best regards,
Alexi

Definite highlight of our trip: whisked straight off into the bush as soon as we drove up to farmhouse for a fantastic 4 days walking with Bruno and learning about everything from geology to animal skulls, and how he is trying to recreate bush from farm. He is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what he is doing. Learned lots about the land, tracking animals etc. Saw plenty of antelope at the water hole, but not a place to go if you just want to see animals.

Bruno isn't a guide, he is a conservationist, and you are privileged to see a tiny bit of his work.

Basic bush camp, shared by porcupine! Excellent food cooked over open fire.
We were the only guests at first, joined by another couple for 2 days.
We loved it (2 parents, 20+ year old daughters).

This is a totally different experience than the other posher camps. The accommodations were rougher but still quite nice. This is all walking, so may not be for everyone. We loved it. We did a 10km and the 6km walk the first day. One does not see many animals on the walks - the blinds are best for this - but Bruno uses the Socratic method to great advantage asking us to elucidate some particular scat, track, or signs of some event. The only suggestion would be to take a five to ten minute sit down break every hour or so.

This was very different to all our other accommodation on the trip as it is a basic bush camp with open-fire kitchen. It is a walking camp run and guided by the owner Bruno. Stayed three nights during which time we were the only guests in the camp with him and his helper Tommy. From the moment we arrived we did not get in a vehicle until the day we left. This is all about the reserve Bruno has set up for endangered species and his encyclopaedic knowledge. He was the most informative and knowledgeable guide of the trip. The weather was unseasonably hot which led to some steamy bush walks as the sun rose in the sky. There are hides by the tents which are rewarding. Best of all was a full early morning walk to a large water hole attracting all manner of visitors. Despite the basic facilities the vegetarian food was better than most of the other camps. It is an intensely personal experience and it is a privilege to share in Bruno's vision.

A truly special and unique place. Clearly reflecting the character and interests of its creator the camp was full of fascinating improvisation from the fire extinguisher bread oven (We want one!) to the lead wood baboon proof chairs!

We learnt so much and it was an absolute delight and privilege to share for a brief while Bruno's interests and experience. Is there anyone in Africa he doesn't know? From guides we had in Zambia five years ago, to canoeists in Swakopmund, to someone I last met in Swaziland 49 years ago! A slightly less luxurious camp than some of the true glamping affairs but perfectly thought through to provide a very comfortable stay.

Probably the best food we had in a trip full of fabulous meals - thank you Tommy (and Tommy 2 for the campfire entertainment)!

One small word of warning - it was the only place where it was really quite cold at nights (being slightly higher than elsewhere). Be prepared and have a magical time!

They wrote to us about their stay, saying:

It was a real privilege to be able to stay here. For those who are interested in or already know something about ecology, geology and/or natural systems, a visit to Mundulea is wonderful. It is an opportunity to see a unique attempt to restore an ecological system, and to discuss the processes and interactions both large and small. We valued the opportunity to learn from Bruno, whose mix of knowledge and experience makes for very interesting discussions on a range of topics, not just on the things we could see around us. Mundulea would not be everybody's cup of tea - for example, whilst Mundulea is perfectly comfortable, for the money it would be possible to have a more luxurious or opulent stay in a lodge or hotel elsewhere.

The tents we stayed in were comfortable and we liked that the fixtures and fittings had been ingeniously made from recycled materials. The tent and outdoor bathrooms did get extremely cold (it was unusually cold when we were visiting - well below freezing - but it is a fairly good bet that it will get cold here and other places at night at this time of year)- hot water bottles were provided but still visitors should ensure they pack thermals for evenings and nights. We were colder here than anywhere else. The food we were served was really tasty and all the more impressive because we could see how it was being ingeniously cooked over one fire.

We visited Mundulea early in our trip, which meant that we hadn't seen much of the wild plants or animals that we would have had we already visited Etosha or other areas. However, Bruno did a good job of not making us feel too ignorant (well.. most of the time!). The way he challenged us to interpret what we found on our walks was really stimulating, it's a really good way to learn. Although we did see lots of interesting 'big' animals, it was nice to be able to discuss and explore less obvious but equally interesting flora and fauna. We also had quite a lot interesting discussions about geology, reflecting our interests.

Compared to other places we found it refreshing to be able to walk and explore, rather than sitting in a car or following a prescribed route (as was necessary for other places we visited in central - north Namibia).

The private road within the reserve up to the farm house was a little rough with some vegetation between the wheel tracks which was a little too much for our Toyota Corolla hire car. Indeed, when leaving the reserve we damaged the undercarriage of our car despite driving at close to a snail's pace. We would recommend to prospective guests at Mundulea that a standard saloon car is not suitable to access the reserve.
(Note from Bruno: we are sorry that this happened. We graded the farm road carefully the following day and now it is fine to drive even a saloon car along the way)

This camp is very different and exciting. Location is magical: a proper camp set right in the bush. No contact with the outside world except satellite phone. Walking only guided by Bruno who has a huge amount of knowledge of the surroundings and wildlife. Cooking is over an open fire. Tents have solar powered lighting and an open shower-hot water in the evening and luke warm in the morning.
The "basic" feel about this accommodation may not suit everyone but for us this was a wonderful experience which we will remember with great affection forever. The combination of walking, being actually in the bush, excellent guiding and the waterholes were fantastic.
One suggestion: we think it would be a good idea to have a charging point if that were possible.

As ever we had a wonderful few days with Bruno learning more about the whole ecosystem, and the progress of all Bruno's hard work trying to restore the area to what it had once been, before it was a cattle farm.  We managed plenty of walking while Bruno taught us much about what we saw along the way.  And although,  as is the nature of these things,  you are not guaranteed to have game sightings, we drew the lucky straw on this occasion and saw plenty.  Including an eland calf just a few days old.  Whilst  we were there on one afternoon and evening we listened to and watched a lightning storm, which brought with it some early rain which was torrential and which lasted several hours.

The food was excellent (Soya Milk was provided) and much time was enjoyed in the evening round the fire & dinner table discussing Bruno's plans for Mundulea and learning more about Namibian life and the country.

We spent three night here at the end of our Namibian trip and had a marvellous time.  Bruno is an impressive  and entertaining interpreter of the landscape and wildlife - and not as restricted in walking as he ought to have been given that he had broken a bone in his foot days before we arrived.
After a lot of driving and viewing big game earlier in our trip, it was good to get more walking and to focus on the smaller birds, animals, plant life and landscape in a setting which is changing so significantly as part of Bruno’s “re-wilding” process.

The camp itself is fun - with leadwood {baboon proof} furniture and an incredible array of recycled equipment in the open kitchen and boma. The lively and educational conversations over dinner and around the fire were as good as the walks and helped make the stay memorable.

No luxuries but we didn't expect them however the beds were comfy and the en-suite, fitted with animal skulls and a turtle shell for a soap dish was great.
Food was some of the best we had with Bruno and Tommy creating miracles with a camp fire.
We were so lucky that no other people had booked while we were there so had Bruno all to ourselves. His knowledge and enthusiasm is unrivalled and for anyone interested in the whole ecology of Namibia and not just the 'big five' it is a wonderful, educational three days.
Need to be hardy as five hours walking in the heat during the morning was quite tough but it was worth it. The evening walk of two or three hours was easier though avoiding the acacia trees was a full time event!

It was a real treat to spend time in the bush with Bruno. When we arrived we were whisked off to observe the rescue, tagging and release of a very rare pangolin, an animal we would never otherwise have seen. This was followed by 3 nights in bush camp with Bruno and Tommy (who looked after the camp and cooking), walking and learning about anything and everything to do with Namibia. Although we did not see many animals while walking, there were many tracks and traces.
 
Bruno’s knowledge of plants, animals, geology and politics is exemplary and he takes obvious pleasure in sharing this.
The only slight criticism is that the walks sometimes seemed to be rather lacking in objective. The vegetation at this time of year can be rather uninspiring. Perhaps a little more discussion and briefing before each walk might have helped.

What a very different experience from anything else we have done in Southern Africa before, but an amazing few days amidst an extraordinary project to create a reserve as it would have been before it had been farmed.
 
Bruno’s knowledge is second to none - breakfast, lunch and dinner time was a feast of simple but delicious food as well as an opportunity to hear more of the story of Mundulea, as well as understanding so much more about conservation, poaching and other subjects relevant to Namibia and its neighbours.
Not for the faint hearted given all the walking in the bush and essential to take good walking shoes or boots, but so rewarding for the effort that goes in.

''Didn't arrive until after dark. Bruno is amazing. Needed another day here. So stimulating… walking was wonderful learning about the small things, footprints, discovering slowly just what Bruno has there and what he does. Didn't get to the caves, but we radio tracked a pangolin, so exciting, and saw the fresh rhino prints whilst on foot, worrying, hoped to see them from the truck but secretive. Talked about so many things. Rhino work amazing. Lovely tents, magnificent food and setting Rave, rave, rave. I don't think it would suit everyone, but it was us.''

They wrote to us about their stay, saying:

Mundulea is a private reserve where the owner, Bruno, is looking to restore the environment to its pre-cattle farming state. This is not a short-term project as over-grazing has caused significant bush-encroachment. But Bruno is very dedicated to the cause, which is well worth supporting - not least because this sort of private project may ultimately (and sadly) prove to be the best hope for Africa's megafauna in particular in the medium- to long-term.

Bruno himself is a true (latter-day) 'renaissance man';. Sculptor, film-maker, photographer, birding guide and bush expert, he has a wealth of knowledge on a wide range of topics and is genuinely curious about many others. Over the four nights we were there our conversations ranged across, inter alia, the origins of multi-cell life (based on local fossils), the eating habits of porcupines (more complex than you might think), the genetics of the zebra (and kite) family, undoing the damage of over-intensive farming, local politics, the Chinese in Africa, and human dietary issues.

Mundulea is a true bush camp. But the accommodation is very comfortable - and we commend in particular the shower which is as good as any we have found on our numerous trips to Africa. Much of the fittings have been made by Bruno and his team from locally available materials (including scrap metal from the area's farming days). Bruno produces amazingly good meals on an open fire, which would do credit to many a modern kitchen.

The waterhole right outside the camp attracts a good range of mammals day and night and, although we were a few weeks early for the peak period, we also saw a wide range of birds.

Best of all, no trucks! Mundulea is all about walking and we enjoyed some excellent rambles through the bush morning and evening.

In short, highly recommended.

Hi again.

We're back home again now after a fantastic trip to Namibia and just wanted to say a huge thanks once again for hosting us at Mundulea and making our time there so memorable and informative. Going slowly on foot and putting together the jigsaw pieces from the signs and clues we found was brilliant as was sitting silently in the hide while the eland herd plucked up courage to drink (we'd love to come back some day and photograph them) before 'Odetta' the rhino ( is that the right spelling?) finally came out of the shadows to drink was magical. We had great fun and learned a huge amount; not least your recipe for Molotov Cocktails which we tried out at Halali with great success!!

Previous guests have expounded on the wonders of Mundulea, and we can only add our admiration for what Bruno is succeeding in doing on this vast reserve.

Yes, the tents are simple, but not basic, the beds are very comfortable, the night-sky view from the loo extraordinary, and the wake up calls of the francolins and the babblers something to be experienced. We even had a leopard calling metres from our tent in the night. Bruno's home cooking was the best food we had on the whole trip (and that is saying something). We were the only guests so we had two days of gentle trailing with Bruno and his son, during which we learnt so much about the animals, plants and the exceptional geology of the area, not to mention history and politics! Like many other guests, we have become "poo" experts and we now have to find a use for all our knowledge in rural Sussex!

This is a true bush-camp but with enough of the creature-comforts to make it a wonderful experience for all ages. We could not recommend it too highly.

For Bruno
A belated thank you for our fantastic stay at Mundulea, which was definitely the highlight of our Namibian trip. We both feel that we have learnt so much about the bush, its plants and animals and we thank you for stretching our brains rather than just feeding us information!

We wish you every success with Mundulea. We really enjoyed meeting Cai and spending time with you both. Sunset picture attached.

With kind regards,

One could not hope for a better or more well-informed guide than Bruno. We were the only guests so everything was catered to our interests. We had a dramatic first night with violent thunderstorms which made the outdoor dining and bathroom experiences ones to remember.

Everything was provided by Bruno and Tommy, Bruno cooking over a fire after a full day out with us walking which was no mean feat. We learned a lot and had close sightings of a variety of animals, some very close to camp. The access road was difficult after prolonged rainfall, maybe at some point it will have to be addressed.

A welcome experience and a change from luxurious lodges, an adventure really.

Dear Bruno,

Thanks once again for a superb experience at your lovely Bush Camp and for looking after us so well; we consider ourselves extremely fortunate for being there on our own.
Best wishes Anne & Fred

First of all, we are so sorry we didn't get a chance to meet you Kate and the boys! Maybe next time! Bruno, there are no words to express our appreciation and gratitude for THEE most wonderful time and adventure with you at Mundulea.  I have traveled quite a bit through my lifetime, and I can honestly say that that the time with you in Mundulea was one of my peak life experiences.  To share with Megan made it even better.  I only wish my husband could have come as well.  Your dedication, brillance, patience, love of life and living, fabulous cooking skills, support of your staff, choice of accommodation in the bush and teacher of it all...was just PERFECT.  
Let's stay in touch!  
Sincere thanks to you Bruno.

Dear Bruno,

I had a very enjoyable visit to Mundulea, and highly rated the experience.  I thought your camp was the closest I have experienced to a proper “bush” camp (very appealing), and I thought that staying there with you and Tom as hosts was intimate and very personal.  It’s a bit like home form home, but in a very different setting.  A wonderful place for clients who are true nature lovers, and turned on by flora and smaller fauna, and spending time in the company of a charming guide drawn to nature and conservation. 

Many thanks again, and best regards,
Angus

Hi Kate, well we're back in cold Sydney now and settling back into our mundane workdays and starless nights, but everyone has been thinking about Namibia since we left. I just wanted to thank you and Bruno - Khanh and I both had an incredible time at Mundulea, and I really wish my partner Lynn had been able to make it. Bruno's encyclopaedic knowledge made for fabulous learning, but his open and inquiring attitude, meditative and thoughtful approach, and inspiring committed worldview made the for a truly unique experience, and connection - for us at any rate!

Even more than the hours spent at the waterhole, revelling in the quiet and the reserve of the animals, I will treasure the many conversations we had each night, about cooking, Namibia's history, politics, National Geographic, cooking (Bruno and I both got heaps of ideas, I think) anything and everything! I would really love to come back, and spend some more time, it was certainly the apex of an amazing trip. If you and the family should ever find yourselves in Australia, do please feel free to get in touch - it would be a real treat to return some of the hospitality we received in our time at Mundulea...

Wow, we visited Mundulea as the first stop on our trip to Namibia and the visit changed our lives.  Visiting Mundulea first turned out to be a good thing (because we were able to absorb all the details about the country's history, geology, flora and fauna and politics at the start of our trip) and also a bad thing, because as my 13 year old son commented "after talking to Bruno for three days pretty much everything anyone else had to say was repetitive"!    Bruno's vision at Mundulea is to recreate the natural environment of Namibia's Central Highlands, including the animal and plant species endemic to the area.  This remarkable project is now well advanced and the property has established herds of Eland, Kudu, Giraffe, Warthog, Blackfaced Impala, Roan Antelope, Zebra, Ostrich as well as many other ungulates and carnivores all the way up to Leopard.  While the accomodations at Mundulea are not as luxurious as others. our kids voted Bruno's open-fire cooked meals the best of our destinations in Namibia.  More importantly the passion, depth of knowledge and experience he brings to the task of guiding his clients around the property are infectious and result in an extraordinary educational, environmental and scientific experience for the young and the young at heart.  If your preference is to see your game from the back of a land rover with half a dozen others then this is not the destination for you; if however you prefer the surprise of a truly wild animal crossing your path as you walk through their territory, then you will find Mundulea a dream come true.

Our stay at Mundulea was the 'jewel in the crown' of our wonderful stay in Namibia.  It is hard to find words that do full justice to the truly unique experience of spending time there with Bruno Nebe whose deep and wide-ranging knowledge of so many aspects of Namibian culture and every aspect of wildlife preservation and conservation was astonishing.  The newly built camp  has a wonderfully rustic charm in complete harmony with its beautiful surroundings and lacked for nothing in necessary facilities.  Particulary impressive was the environmentally sustainable  showers whiich Bruno had constructed using former gas cylinders which enabled the shower water to be heated by burning wood 'harvested' from scrub clearance.  We were particularly fortunate that we were the sole guests at the camp during our stay so had lot of quality time to discuss a whole range of subjects.  The two walks we did were full of fascinating insights into so many different elements of the behaviour of game in a natural setting and was a massive contrast from Etosha where the game have become immune to the presence of humans.  Relatively close encounters with kudu, a family of warthogs  and wild cattle were electrifying.  Breakfast and evening meals were a delight with excellent and interesting meals cooked over a wood fire.  Sundowners with our host at a hide overlooking a waterhole were also a delight.  Our only regret was that our stay had to come to an end but, hopefully we will get to return one day.

I don't know how to describe the wonderful time we had a Mundulea. We went expecting basic camping facilities; & how we were we surprised! We did not expect such luxury -  some of the furniture was built by Bruno. Take note of the chandelier over the dining table! We had hot water for the shower (no bucket shower here), if taken during daylight hours; totally unexpected. Bruno has such imagination to have built this camp. The walking was wonderful & it was such a change to see the animals from on foot rather than in a vehicle. Bruno's knowledge of the area is vast. It amazed me how he finds his way around.  The food cooked over the open fire was excellent with lots of it. We would not hesitate to return - only next time, if going at this time of year, I think we would take hot water bottles & thermals; it got very cold in the night.

We are now back in rather cold England after a really fantastic trip - thank you so much for everything.  The itinerary worked out marvellously well and it was so exciting to see all the changes and improvements at Mundulea - we will spread the word among our friends!!  The cooking, wine, rock shandy, gin and tonic (with home grown lemon) and the sundowner moths will all be remembered with great enjoyment and the walks and scrambles have kept us nice and fit - I fear we still will not pass the "tracks and spoor" tests next time we see you!

Thanks for a fantastic time, it was great to see you again and make our first visit to Mundulea.  Kids now addicted to caves so we got dragged down another one at Gauss - tame by comparison but Edward and I still bottled before the rest.  Cape Town a bit of a culture shock - we had to hit the shops to tidy Edward up and he is now the proud owner of a 10 x pair of binos, in case we spy whales on our trip along the coast.
