A special guest at Sedia Riverside Hotel - a large Chameleon. Just moments before this shot the Chameleon put on a great display of dining skills. The tongue can extend upto 1.5 times their body length and it is very accurate. For this dinner the Chameleon was dining on emerging termites that were starting to fly out of their holes in the ground. Ah, a feast fit for a Chameleon!

' Tour d'Afrique' is on it's annual Cairo to Cape Town 12,000km bicycle tour. Over 50 tour riders and support crew were at Sedia for a two day rest. Their trip takes 95 days. The stopover gave them a chance to do a mokoro trip, go for a game flight or just relax around the pool and fill-up with some luxury - like cheese cake. Early Monday morning they were back on the road and heading for Windhoek, Namibia. Everyone looked strong and in great shape. Cape Town and the finish line is calling them. Good Luck to the Tour dAfrique group!

When 5 large BMW motorbikes pull up at sundown, it creates a stir of excitement. When it turns out to be 4 Irishmen and and honourary Irishman from Finland, you know the ambiance will bubble with good-natured stories and laughter.

The rainy season is slowly drawing to a close. It is still 'wet and wonderful' on the outside and nice and dry inside. Standing next to the Terrace Pool Bar can give you much to look at - like this photo. Looking over the rooms and beyond the Conference Centre, we can see nature in all her beauty.
We have had over 600mm of rain so far - well above the average of 450mm. March should give us our final significant downpours.
