What a relaxing place after a long days drive. Right on the banks of the Kavango River it is a quiet and relaxing place to overnight. We stayed here on our return journey as well. The staff are very friendly and get it right most of the time. The food in the restaurant is basic but very good and the bar caters for a wide variety of drinks.

They had fenced in areas for their livestock at night. People were everywhere!! Families, groups of women, groups of men, groups of boys, and groups of girls. All walking down, or at times pushing a bike or riding a donkey driven cart along the highway which had a speed limit of 120 ...
... used songs like Boccherini's Minuet, The Chicken Dance, Pop Goes the Weasel, While Walking Through the Park One Day and lots of sound effects using a kazoo, thundertube, shakers, etc.
