Happy wedding anniversary!
We got up at 06.00 it was very cold, out side, the Land Rover had a covering of ice, we are camped quite high at 1250 metres. We put the kettle on and had breakfast. Whilst I washed up Les packed away the tent, it was so cold that we couldn't feel our hands. We were on the road by 08.00.

The solar panels that have reduced generator time from 24 to 1 hour, the use of solar cookers and solar ovens, growing the lodges own vegetables and herbs, and generally how everything operates. We then had a short drive (90 min) to sesriem. We decided not to wait to go to the park the following morning but to go straight away. At 1:30 we seemed to be the only car heading in and loads were heading out. We lunched at Dune 45 and ...
