Welcome to Mungari….part 2

Yesterday, I showed you around our tent in the Mungari camp, so now lets see the rest of it!!

There is an open-air pavilion that contains two seating areas…..

and the tables that we dined at…..

It was such fun to sit here with our camp-mates and hear about their days!!

The entire camp is run on solar power and the path lights wore “hats” to keep things from being too bright…..

These were woven from a palmetto leaf and were very creative!!! As time went on, they started to dry out and spaces formed between the woven leaves. I loved how they looked…..

….and, of course, saw a quilt design!!

There are two camp cats…..

…but after I mentioned that I was allergic to cats, they mysteriously disappeared to the other camp. We were told that they often move between camps but I suspect that in this case, they were MOVED.

There was always something in camp to watch, including this Red Duiker…..

She is very pregnant and we are looking forward to seeing her sweet lamb (yes that is what they are called) when we return in a few weeks!!!

There were two guinea fowl that had the run of the camp….

and an amazing array of butterflies…..

They are in the process of building two concrete buildings that will house some of the camp employees and I found this interesting tree trunk that had been cut down…..

Isn’t the wood grain amazing!!! And this one too……

One of the nightly camp traditions is the fire-pit…..come back next week to hear more!!

Welcome to Mungari….

There are two different camps in Coutada 11 and we were in the Mungari Camp. It is a beautiful area….

….that consists of a large gathering pavilion, kitchen and several office buildings. The guests stay in tents….if you call this palatial accommodation a tent…..

Inside there are two very comfortable beds……

….and a “closet” system…..

The bathroom is open air and attached to the tent…..

The shower….

…..featured boiling hot water from our own, individual, wood-fired water heater…..

The only problem with this was when it had rained for several days in a row and the worker’s couldn’t keep the fire going. The shower’s got cooler but still warm!!!

The paths around the camp were raked every few days, leaving a fun design in the sand…..

I found myself walking on the grass to avoid messing up the pretty design!!! Probably NOT what they had in mind!!!

Come back tomorrow and we will explore further!!!
