Evenings at Gondwana were magical. we slipped into them after hazy afternoons of sunshine and laughs followed by an evening game drive, where I watched two lion cubs eat their dinner before heading back to the lodge to eat mine. Dinner was a highly anticipated affair after a long day in the sun, and Gondwana didn’t disappoint. It was a weekend of fillet’s for me, with delicious soup’s for starters and a memorable dessert that we decided tasted just like finger biscuits/childhood – I also tried a kudu fillet for the first time which I was pretty apprehensive about and it turned out being my favourite dish of the whole trip! The girls and I dined while wrapped in blankets and sipping on wine, and in a room full of tourists we were the only ones running around taking pictures of everything before eating #embarrasingbloggerproblems
Nights were super chilly on the reserve but our villa came equipped with a fire-place ~which we never actually discovered how to use~ and the most deliciously heated beds. Majorly upset with myself for not getting a good picture of my room but imagine going to sleep with a canopy of netting all around you and being able to starfish without touching the sides – and yeah, that most definitely happened.
It’s been a long, long time since I’ve seen so many stars in the sky at night and it was easy to get lost in them when looking up. what an amazing way to end a beautiful year, I can’t wait for many more travel adventures in 2015
