Our lodge at Vingerklip is out in the middle of nowhere. No internet connection whatsoever. The area is the amazing Ugab-Valley, with its table mountains and plateaus. It is a beautiful landscape.

After a nice lunch we relaxed on our balcony. We had a view of one of the local waterholes. We saw zebras walking off when we first got there. Then came large birds, possibly guinea fowl. Followed by a large group of baboons. The next morning the birds came back, and just as we were leaving a pair of large Eland antelopes arrived for their morning drink.

It’s a fantastic lodge, two rooms share a small cottage, with entrances on opposite sides. Again we had a loft for Alex.

Food was great. Coffee, tea, and cake whenever we wished (you get what you pay for).
