The wildlife

on the resort is quite tame. The guinea fowl, mongoose and loeries come quite close to the chalets. Early in the morning we were visited by the mongoose and guniea fowl and it was quite fun to watch the kids chase them up and down shouting "Tarentula's", "Tarentula's". Tarentaal being the Afrikaans name for Guinea Fowl. They were however warned not to go close to the cute looking mongoose- who can be quite vicious if cornered.

The Loeries were fed copius amounts of fruit by the kids. Everytime a child came to ask for a banana we knew they were feeding Loeries.

Sadly we had to leave today but it was a very relaxing and rejuvenating time. Even though the resort was fully booked it was a very quit and tranquil space to be in.
