Goodbye to all that
10 years almost to day that we started clearing bush to build Ras Mbisi we have learnt that our baby Ras Mbisi has been razed to the ground by a terrible fire. To say that we are heartbroken would be an understatement. For the staff and all those who put so much into it, for those that made memories there and yes, for us too. Even though we had long since left our hearts were still very much there, all that work, gone.
I used to own and run a Lodge - built with our own blood, sweat & at times tears (mine mainly)- on Mafia Island, Tanzania together with my husband. We lived here with our 3 children, several mad dogs and a lot of loopy rescued chickens.
