Had a very pleasant stay in the Nkopola lodge. Manager Ellard Salva was very helpful. Rooms were nice and staff was pleasant. Beautiful buffet breakfast (included). Location on the beach is tropical.

... almost completed school block, we piled back onto the bus and waved our farewells.
The final ride out was bittersweet. On one hand it was sad to be leaving, on the other, we craved the comforts of home. And those comforts were not that far away!
