The owners and the guide were away at the time of these guests visit. We now understand that when this happens, there is no relief guide to take the activities. There are marked trails on the property for guests to do unguided walks. The owner has confirmed that the maintenance man is also one of their drivers and that he often takes the sundowner trips, which the owner feels “ do not need a qualified guide”. Their resident guide would usually do these trips too, but they promote up-skilling within their staff and consider his absence an opportunity for their maintenance man to gain experience. Their resident guide was trained up through the ranks in a similar way.
There was a group staying at the lodge at the time and they occupied the rest of the rooms. That group did leave early, at 5:00am, to go on a day trip to Sossusvlei.
The owner has apologized for the noise and disturbance caused by the groups early departure.
