Tamodi is a bed and breakfast in the form of an exclusive and very luxurious lodge. I had only one evening here and I wasn’t going to waste a minute of it. I planned and executed my evening, though I say it myself, to perfection. First, I nipped down the hill to fetch my take-away supper from an Italian restaurant. Whilst waiting for my seafood pasta, I was briefly distracted by spy-hopping whales and a glorious African sunset. I made my way back up the hill to Tamodi (avoiding porcupines, bushbuck and baboons) complete with a portion of tiramisu. Owen encouraged me to sample some wines from his private cellar and I plumped for a local red which I took out on to the deck and watched darkness descend over the Tsitsikamma Mountains. The luxurious lodge is built high above a deep forested valley, so the protruding deck and infinity pool give the illusion that the whole place is floating in the sky. After dinner I listened to the sounds of the African night and observed how different the stars look in the southern hemisphere, before retreating under thatch to take a long hot soak in my suite’s free-standing stone bathtub. I drifted off to a deep sleep until morning. A delicious breakfast was served under parasols on the deck by the friendly-but-discreet Tamodi staff and, as the sun slowly burnt away the mist from the valley below, I could have been the only person in the world, perched in my house in the clouds.
