I may or may not have taken 500 pictures in one single weekend

In less than a weekend, actually. In fact, we spent only 26 hours at Olerai House by Lake Naivasha, but those 26 hours presented themselves like pretty much the best photo-op ever.

This was the view from the breakfast table.  And the lunch table. And the afternoon drinks table.
Gratuitous, aerial view of my breakfast. The owners had sourced the tableware from all over the world, I think, which we can all agree adds a terribly nice touch. 

Upon arrival, they offered that a staff warrior take us for a walk on the grounds, not least to protect us from the water buffaloes who were supposedly feeling a little antsy that morning. One of the females had given birth that very night, and if I had given birth to a baby buffalo, I too would be a little extra on my marks - I mean, look.
Just as we sat down to breakfast on Sunday morning, there was this whole clan of giraffes parading by. Along with zebras. And wild hogs. And water bucks. And impalas :) 
They even had a pet pig that enjoyed belly rubs. Johan was a little awkward in mentioning how you could make a really neat brush out of its hair, and the owner was all: "But it's our pet...?"
Our room. Enough said.

Our room as seen from outside. Monkeys jumped from the trees on to the tin roof every once in a while just to shake things up a bit

A view over Lake Naivasha. Or perhaps it's a smaller lake right next to Lake Naivasha. Anyhow, a lake and a view it is.
The main house.

Zebras hanging out with guests. 
Going to bed without flowers strewn on it, just feels unbearable now.

Fantastiske billeder! Surrealistiske, faktisk...någet man sagtens kunne drömme.....og mens jeg sad og spiste morgenmad kom en zebra forbi....og i det fjerne gik et par giraffer...

@Provins: Haha, du er skæg! Men bare lige for at udligne lidt, så endte jeg med at ligge syg med mad- eller vandforgiftning i flere dage efter, og kan nu sjovt nok ikke se på billederne uden at få lidt kvalme. Så ja, jeg har faktisk ligget i min seng og drømt om en weekend i Haderslev med vagtlæge ;O)

@Mutti: Ja det var virkelig fantastisk. Skal bare lige genfinde entusiasmen igen ovenpå mavebøvl ;O)
