Last morning in Moremi. During the night we had heard Hippos very close…
…Ghanzi where we found the Tautona Lodge. Looked very fancy and way too expensive but was not. Very strange place though. Although the lodge was close to empty they squeezed us into a two bedroom house with extra mattresses on the floor. We had to call several times to get things like towels and toilet paper.
The restaurant was big and beautiful, the staff was very nice – but the place was almost empty and the food a bit strange.
Leaving the next morning (we did not try the breakfast…) we found enclosures with Wilddogs and this beautiful pair of Kalahari Lions. My guess is Tautona was built with high ambitions but that it is now run by someone who can’t handle it. Too bad.
…and after fuel and some real Namibian service with window and headlight cleaning (they don’t do that in Botswana…) we were ready for the final part back to Windhoek. Nine days of adventure was over. It was a very nice trip and I can recommend anyone to do it!
