Brilliant! What a place. Built among the rocks of the canyon its hard to tell there is anything there. The staff were excellent, food great and the accommodation was superb. Highly recommended! Its a long way to the lodge but well worth the trip.

... on the road again to experience the 100 km of straightness one more time wondering if by chance there was one more thing we might have forgotten. I was very nervous when I went through the procedure again but all went well. Well, until I tried to get through the actual border. The customs guy asked me about all the stuff I had: cameras, mobiles, phones, i-pods, go-pros, bikes etc. He said unless I wanted to pay duty on those coming ...
