Dinner by lamplight at Mundulea

Apart from one other guest we were the only people staying at Mundulea when we visited so we were lucky to have Bruno's (almost) undivided attention on our walks and also at mealtimes when Bruno prepared the food for us. The result was that we almost felt like houseguests rather than clients. We weren't that lucky with our gameviewing (as it was just after the rains it wasn't the best time of year) but we really enjoyed hearing Bruno talking not just about the wldlife but also about his aspirations for the reserve and all sorts of aspects of life in Namibia and Namibian history.

The camp facilities provide basic comforts but are not luxurious. There is no electricity but that is part of the charm. We found it very relaxing to get into the rhythm of light/dark as part of the daily cycle. Dinner was cooked over an open fire and eaten by the light of kerosene lamps with some interesting stories from Bruno.

One of the things we liked best about this reserve (apart from the wildlife especially Bruno's wild cows!) was that relatively modest hills gave great views over the Central highlands south towards the Waterberg plateau and north towards the Otavi mountains (where we were headed next). Perfect spots for sundowners.

Incredible African expereince with an expert.

This was a wonderful experience which allowed a family to truly walk in the african veldt with an expert naturalist. We would defintiely do this again if we get back to Namibia as we hope. Having siad that I do not think that what we had heard from Expert Africa truly described what the camping and walking experience was going to be. This meant that it took a little more time for Bruno and us to assess each other as to what was on offer or appropraite for us as a family. He did this very quickly and ensured an incredible experience but more information form expert africa would have helped. The first days walk proved a little too much for our 12 year old son at the end of a holiday, in the sun and possibly with less water intake in the previous day's motoring. He needed a pick up to finish what the rest of us had found a great day's walk.

Bruno adjusted the next day perfectly with two shorter walks and some caving.

The camping was great but more basic than we had been led to believe. this mattered not at all it was just not quite what we ahd expected. We would go back to it though.

Bruno's cooking, knowledge and conversation was fantastic and I must admit that we have already reccomended him and this stay to several friends. I think that the other thing you may need to consider is that whilst Bruno is a very modest man, having his individual attention, skills and teaching is a wonderful experience even down to teaching my son to do fried eggs on the open fire each morning. Before going we had not appreciated what a privilege it would be to walk and sit in his company.

It would have been good not to have needed to rush off on the last day.

The only reason for the average mark for facilities is that it is after all a camp with a bucket shower, but the location is better than excellent!
