Hej, men vad tiden rusar iväg! Vi har det så bra och så kul här! Ingen ledig stund. Vi lämnade Nambiti Game Reserve i torsdags, hade knappt 48 timmar i Johannesburg och nu är vi i Kapstaden. Återkommer med lite bilder från vårt besök i Johannesburg, och naturligtvis i veckan som kommer med vad vi hittar på här i Kapstaden. 

Här kommer nu lite bilder från den lodgen som vi bor på; Idwala Lodge. Så vacker och så fint beläget. Som jag nämnt tidigare så ligger den i Nambiti Game Reserve. Just Idwala Lodge är helt privat och ägs av ett antal delägare, som har 3 veckor per år, rullande schema, mao det går inte att boka denna lodge. Vår vän Keith än en av delägarna och vi var där på en av hans veckor. 

Hello, time is flying! We have such a great time and so much fun, unbelievable. Not a dull moment. We left Nambiti Game Reserve last Thursday, had 48 hours in Johannesburg and now we are in Cape Town. Will get back with some photos from our stay in Johannesburg, and of course from this upcoming week in Cape Town. 

Here are now some pics from the lodge we stayed at; Idwala Lodge. So beautiful and perfectly situated. As I have mentioned previously it is situated in Nambiti Game ReserveAnd Idwala Lodge is a private lodge owned by a number of shareholders/owners, who has approx 3 weeks / year, on a rolling schedule, i.e. you can not stay here if you are not invited. Our friend Keith is one of the owners and this was one of his three weeks.

Idwala har 5 stycken stugor där man kan bo 2-4 personer och en stor där man äter, relaxar och solar. Stugorna plus stora huset har en jättevacker utsikt över savannen. Nedan ser ni ett antal bilder från stora huset. Ni ser också att det är olika färger, beroende på när på dagen. Allt från halv sex på morgonen till sent på kvällen. 

Idwala has 5 cottages where you can stay 2-4 people and one big where you spend most of the time; breakfast, lunch, dinner, relaxing and just being. All with beautiful view over the bush. Below you see a number of photos from the big house, with different colours depending on the time of the day; from 5.30 am to late.

Vårt frukost, lunch och middagsbord! Här satt vi som mest 18 personer. Vi får en schema av Keith, och köper med mat för middag och frukost innan ankomst då vi är ute i vildmarken. Sedan har respektive par ansvar för att laga middag och frukost tillsammans med hushållerskan Timba. 

Our table! The weather was great so we sat outdoor the whole time, nice!! At most we were 18 people around the table. We receive a schedule from Keith on who's responsible for the dinner and breakfast each day. You need to buy all things before you enter the Game Reserve and then you are responsible to make the dinner and breakfast, together with the housekeeper Timba.

Allt är smakfullt inrett, modern men med afrikansk känsla. 

Everything is very nicely decorated with a modern African touch.

Vi får det städat varje dag, så det är riktig hotellkänsla. 

It is cleaned every day, so a true hotel feeling.

Fönstrena/dörrarna går att öppna helt och hållet, vilket vi gjorde flera gånger. Häftigt!! Och här yogade jag flera de flesta dagarna. 

The windows/doors can be totally open, so you get the feeling that you lie in the bush. Awesome. And I did yoga most of the days on the terrace.

Väldigt sydafrikanskt att sitta vid elden på kvällen. 

And very South African to sit by the fire in the evening.
