We reached Lake Olodien from Loldia House. The road is at times abysmal - not so much bumpy as bogged in sand - and despite being a short distance it takes the best part of an hour. The norm is you pay $50 to hire...More

Small lake with lots of bird life. Boat trip arranged as a community project. Pelicans hunting in groups is an amazing site
