Hi Kate, well we're back in cold Sydney now and settling back into our mundane workdays and starless nights, but everyone has been thinking about Namibia since we left. I just wanted to thank you and Bruno - Khanh and I both had an incredible time at Mundulea, and I really wish my partner Lynn had been able to make it. Bruno's encyclopaedic knowledge made for fabulous learning, but his open and inquiring attitude, meditative and thoughtful approach, and inspiring committed worldview made the for a truly unique experience, and connection - for us at any rate!

Even more than the hours spent at the waterhole, revelling in the quiet and the reserve of the animals, I will treasure the many conversations we had each night, about cooking, Namibia's history, politics, National Geographic, cooking (Bruno and I both got heaps of ideas, I think) anything and everything! I would really love to come back, and spend some more time, it was certainly the apex of an amazing trip. If you and the family should ever find yourselves in Australia, do please feel free to get in touch - it would be a real treat to return some of the hospitality we received in our time at Mundulea...

Wow, we visited Mundulea as the first stop on our trip to Namibia and the visit changed our lives.  Visiting Mundulea first turned out to be a good thing (because we were able to absorb all the details about the country's history, geology, flora and fauna and politics at the start of our trip) and also a bad thing, because as my 13 year old son commented "after talking to Bruno for three days pretty much everything anyone else had to say was repetitive"!    Bruno's vision at Mundulea is to recreate the natural environment of Namibia's Central Highlands, including the animal and plant species endemic to the area.  This remarkable project is now well advanced and the property has established herds of Eland, Kudu, Giraffe, Warthog, Blackfaced Impala, Roan Antelope, Zebra, Ostrich as well as many other ungulates and carnivores all the way up to Leopard.  While the accomodations at Mundulea are not as luxurious as others. our kids voted Bruno's open-fire cooked meals the best of our destinations in Namibia.  More importantly the passion, depth of knowledge and experience he brings to the task of guiding his clients around the property are infectious and result in an extraordinary educational, environmental and scientific experience for the young and the young at heart.  If your preference is to see your game from the back of a land rover with half a dozen others then this is not the destination for you; if however you prefer the surprise of a truly wild animal crossing your path as you walk through their territory, then you will find Mundulea a dream come true.

Subject: our stay with you Dear Bruno and Kate, We have only just returned home from South Africa as we were grounded due to the vulcano ashes over Europe ... Our trip to Namibia was amazing and we all feel it has changed us lots. Our visit to Mundulea was amazing, it put our visit to this planet in a whole different perspective and our amazement and reverence for nature have gone through the roof. Thanks so much for a great 3/4 days, Bruno, and for all your wise lessons ... Love, Mette, Gijsbert, Carmen, Thierry and Emiel

They wrote to us about their stay, saying:

Our stay at Mundulea was the 'jewel in the crown' of our wonderful stay in Namibia.  It is hard to find words that do full justice to the truly unique experience of spending time there with Bruno Nebe whose deep and wide-ranging knowledge of so many aspects of Namibian culture and every aspect of wildlife preservation and conservation was astonishing.  The newly built camp  has a wonderfully rustic charm in complete harmony with its beautiful surroundings and lacked for nothing in necessary facilities.  Particulary impressive was the environmentally sustainable  showers whiich Bruno had constructed using former gas cylinders which enabled the shower water to be heated by burning wood 'harvested' from scrub clearance.  We were particularly fortunate that we were the sole guests at the camp during our stay so had lot of quality time to discuss a whole range of subjects.  The two walks we did were full of fascinating insights into so many different elements of the behaviour of game in a natural setting and was a massive contrast from Etosha where the game have become immune to the presence of humans.  Relatively close encounters with kudu, a family of warthogs  and wild cattle were electrifying.  Breakfast and evening meals were a delight with excellent and interesting meals cooked over a wood fire.  Sundowners with our host at a hide overlooking a waterhole were also a delight.  Our only regret was that our stay had to come to an end but, hopefully we will get to return one day.

We went expecting basic camping facilities; & how we were we surprised! We did not expect such luxury -  some of the furniture was built by Bruno. Take note of the chandelier over the dining table! We had hot water for the shower (no bucket shower here), if taken during daylight hours; totally unexpected. Bruno has such imagination to have built this camp. The walking was wonderful & it was such a change to see the animals from on foot rather than in a vehicle. Bruno's knowledge of the area is vast. It amazed me how he finds his way around.  The food cooked over the open fire was excellent with lots of it. We would not hesitate to return - only next time, if going at this time of year, I think we would take hot water bottles & thermals; it got very cold in the night.

We thoroughly enjoyed being in the company of Bruno Nebe. What an amazing person! His knowledge of any subject we talked about, be it the wildlife, the country, or politics was incredible.  Being here with Bruno was the highlight of our trip to Namibia.

Don't change anything!  The small and personal approach helps make the experience special.

Tell Bruno that we are pleased he found his sunglasses!!

Subject: ThanksDear Bruno,
We are now back in rather cold England after a really fantastic trip - thank you so much for everything.  The itinerary worked out marvellously well and it was so exciting to see all the changes and improvements at Mundulea - we will spread the word among our friends!!  The cooking, wine, rock shandy, gin and tonic (with home grown lemon) and the sundowner moths will all be remembered with great enjoyment and the walks and scrambles have kept us nice and fit - I fear we still will not pass the "tracks and spoor" tests next time we see you! 
With love to you all.

Dear Bruno,

Just a note to say thank you so very much for the fantastic trip to Mundulea.  It was a highlight of our trip.  The project at Mundulea is an excellent, and fascinating, one - I haven't learnt so much in a very long time.  I will try to email some photos if I work out the technology needed!

Thank you also for the delicious food - I shall be trying to repeat your
chicken recipe...

Please could you keep us posted on Mundulea as we certainly hope to come
back on our fifth trip to Namibia.

Best wishes,
 Emily, Bob and Sue

Subject: Re: Confirmation: 2 x Scott-Aiton - 11th-14th November 2008 - MunduleaDear Bruno and KateWhat can we say other than thanks for another memorable few days in the (almost original!) Namibian bush.  We both thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mundulea to see first hand what you are trying to re-create there.  The camp site was just the right atmosphere for such surroundings and Bruno's patter was its usual fascinating and enthralling self - our rhino meeting and the python story have been re-told several times already!!

Dear Bruno
Firstly, can I say thank you for the marvellous time you and Ernst gave us - the two camping trips were the highlights of the holiday for all the family. Ernst was excellent and I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks again to him. He is a great guy for you, who has deep understanding and concern.
We planned this trip to give our children memories, and I am truly grateful that you have done that and more.
with best wishes

Thanks for a fantastic time, it was great to see you again and make our first visit to Mundulea.  Kids now addicted to caves so we got dragged down another one at Gauss - tame by comparison but Edward and I still bottled before the rest.  Cape Town a bit of a culture shock - we had to hit the shops to tidy Edward up and he is now the proud owner of a 10 x pair of binos, in case we spy whales on our trip along the coast.
Best wishes,

Hi Bruno,
Thanks for a wonderful time exploring Mundulea, all the gourmet braais, fascinating information, wonderful campfire stories and counting all your kudu to try get to sleep. We REALLY enjoyed it and would love another unusual off-the beaten track adventure with you sometime!
