Thank you all!

ON October 9 on the vlei adjacent to Pangolin Lodge, a fire was negligently started. Due to strong winds the fire spread to our trees and a fireball escaped onto our thatched dining room and kitchen.

Although nothing could be saved in the restaurant and kitchen, it was due to the work of the firemen that all the other buildings were saved.


The help and assistance we received from the Fire Brigade, police and paramedics was outstanding and we would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincerest thanks for their help. Also to guests and friends who came to the lodge on that fateful day, our heartfelt thanks.


We are re-building the premises and although we are running as normal, our new dining room should be up and running in a couple of months.


On December 16 we will close down the lodge for three weeks to give our builders the opportunity to carry out the work.


May we take this opportunity to once again applaud the City of Harare and Borrowdale police and to thank all our guests, colleagues and friends for their invaluable support and wish them all a peaceful and happy Christmas, but especially a promising 2006 in our beautiful country.


Management and staff,

Pangolin Lodge,

Borrowdale.
