We had been told that desert elephants and lions would often cross the campsite. A sign at reception said so. And the staff at the lodge warned us to have a fire at night and not walk around after dark, under penalty of being eaten by lions. Ok, maybe they did not say that last bit! So, as instructed by the receptionist, who said we had to have a fire going at night to keep the lions away, we duly ordered some wood then rode to the campsite. The campsite was widespread. The camping spots had only a built up place to make a fire, but nothing else. Certainly nowhere to sit. As there was one of those huge tourist truck which include cook, driver and guide, I walked over to see it we could borrow a couple of chairs for the evening. They had piles of those. My request was flatly refused. I guess if something happens to the chairs, the staff would be charged for them? Oh well, no bad feelings.
