WPC: Serene


Twilight in Southern Africa is a short affair – 45 minutes after sunset and evening rustles in. As birds and animals come in to roost there’s a gradual lessening of ‘chirp’. Here at the Kunene River Lodge the wind subsides and the water takes on a heavenly appearance to perfectly reflect the sky and clouds. It is remarkably serene – for about 15 minutes before the night chorus cranks up. Cicadas, crickets, frogs, night jars all tune up and deafen the night in syncopated symphony.

    1. It’s very lively at night! Takes me ages to nod off, wanting to identify every sound. Had we free camped I would have had one eye open all night worrying about things with teeth and carnivorous appetites:)
