:big_eyes: WHICH ONE IS THE ONE WITH THE VISITOR :big_eyes:

I also was visited, but only by one thicktailed bushbaby, on my first two (of four) nights in tent #1 (April 2012), while I was doing some work on my laptop in the evening. The bushbaby was very curious and came right onto the table to inspect the laptop :big_eyes: , but was more interested eventually in trying to get into my cupboards and rubbish bin :( Obviously had been fed by some :rtm: , but it was a treat that it was quite relaxed even with me sitting right there :whistle:

(I didn't have a chance to grab my camera because I was afraid that any movement would scare the bushbaby away, so no pix, but great memories! :dance: )

Unfortunately for you, Marijke, both tents 1 and 2 have quite small decks ...

we were in 2 in Sept last year. Loved it - better than 1 where we'd gate crashed some friendsfor dinner the year before. (we were in very small 2 bedded room having just missed out on one of the lovely family places) We had 4 genets visit us both evenings - shy but not scared. Not a big area to sit out on though - plenty for 2 but more than 4 would be cosy. We had 6 comfortably on deck of 1 along with whole troupe of thieving vervets!

Thanks Rosemary,
I will try calling, but doing that from this side of the world is difficult. Middle of the night!

I wonder if anyone has any idea as to when the lines might be back up. I assume that the email is also not working.

Ahhhhhhhh technology!
