After we has settled we went through to the lodge for Lunch which was a grilled Cajun chicken salad and for dessert a meringue basket with ice cream and a berry reduction - oh so delicious I finished the whole thing! Feeling a little ill we went back to our room for a relaxing siesta and to get ready for our afternoon game drive, back at the lodge there was tea & coffee and a delicious looking cake which unfortunately none of us touched as we were too full from lunch, what a pity because it looked amazing.
Out on game drive and the afternoon proved productive with sightings of buffalo, elephant, lion , impala , hippo, zebra, hartebeest, eland, kudu, grey duiker, black back jackal, reed buck, nyala, ostrich, wildebeest etc. After our game drive it was back to the lodge for a 3 course dinner for starters - tomato, mozzarella and basil tartlet. Mains: pork roast with carrots, green beans and potato rosti. Dessert: chocolate mousse pot. It was all simply delicious!

After our siesta we were back off to lunch which was meant to be a smoked salmon salad, unfortunately I really don’t like smoked salmon but a quick word with Brent and we were enjoying our smoked chicken salad, pudding was rich and creamy crème brûlée. The Lunch and Dinner menus at Nambiti Plains Lodge are set and they write it up on a little black board, but if there is ever anything you don’t eat/like there is no hesitation to change it to something you would.
Another siesta, high Tea which was the yummiest little mini cakes and then we were off on our afternoon game drive where we found elephant, 3 white rhino, lions, all the general antelope, back to the lodge for another 3 course Dinner: starter - cold tomato soup (bloody Mary soup), mains - lamb cutlets, soft corn polenta, vegetables and a jus sauce, Dessert - mixed berry panda cotta - deliciousness!!
