Just Some Chatter
Plumbago Guest House is set on a working Avocado and Banana Farm. Therefore you will experience `unfamiliar sounds` like tractors or spray machines in the orchards as well as the monkeys on your roof early in the morning… do not be alarmed if you suddenly hear a thud on your roof at sunrise – they will do no harm. Listen out for the resident Hippo in the dams below the swimming pool area… on the odd occasion these fellows damage the water pipes in the orchards and then … Yes! good guess… – No water! BUT do not fret, before you know it Robbie has already dashed off to see to it.
If travelling in the evenings be very careful of hippo crossing the roads (tar and dirt); they `feed` at night and therefore move from dam to dam… the signs are there for a good reason! Believe me!! … Robbie has had a very near death experience… these signs are no JOKE!
