Here I am sipping on a cocktail on the wooden deck, enjoying grand vistas of mountain scenery and sweeping desert plains : relaxed, rejuvenated and utterly seduced by this magnificent place. It's hard not to be. My surroundings are wondrously colourful, and the venue itself is an utterly enchanting traditional chalet.
But one of the main reasons for my rather zen-like state of mind would have to be the views of the unique flora and the fascinating wild horses, roaming free by dozens. Tomorrow will be time for another hike, or maybe a scenic drive, or even a short trip to Luderitz or the deserted former diamond settlement of Kolmanskop (a mere 1 hour drive). So much choice !
