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.

This evening we all went out to dinner to "Palm Beach", a resort that's run by a dynamo South African woman named Rita and her husband ...
... it was so hot the mums pulled out the paddling pool and baby baths and the kids had a good splash before lunch. After lunch we could hear lots of singing from the building so we went down to see what was going on.

We joined in- Ronnie and Chimwemwe taught me their ...
