Molopo Kalahari Lodge.. outside the Kalahari Gemsbok Park…

Molopo Kalahari Lodge is a gem 60 km. from the Park gate, and this is where we spent a night after one hell of a trip… Molopo Kalahari Lodge (click to see their website) so friendly, so helpful, what a find this was…. What a special place, where a sit down on the stoep, with a drink, after a battle of a trip, you are joined by one of the Managers who is there but for nothing else, than to make you welcome and to see that you have everything you need to make your evening comfortable and enjoyable…

The dinning room (above) has a windmill replica in the middle of the room (great idea) and the pub below has a barber shop chair … just in case you want a haircut whilst having a drink… maybe even a drop of petrol.????  The lounge is so comfortable, I could have slept there….
