Passion Killer


Riekie shares her tale of an amusing little hitch at the Little Bushveld Guest House - Passion Killer or Mastermind?
Many a guesthouse owner has had one of those dreadful experiences where something goes wrong, very wrong - just minutes before guests arrive. Here is our story:

Little Bushveld Guesthouse has an innovative Bush camp with an ablution in a split-pole-fenced boma where one can shower with only an acacia tree as roof – a very relaxing experience. Hot water was at the time of the incident supplied to the shower via an old, unreliable Junkers gas geyser which simply failed to start-up when again tested minutes before guests were to arrive on a Friday afternoon.

Having paid for what was offered, a cold shower experience was definitely not to be popular with our guests!! Our solution in desperation to the young couple was that hot water had to be prepared on the 2-plate gas stove, carried to the boma with a plastic watering-can and making turns to be the “showerer” and the one to be “showered” with the latter sitting in a big plastic tub!! When asked at departure whether all went well we were met with beaming smiles and a shy “it was a VERY, VERY interesting and enjoyable weekend”  
*The Junkers has since been replaced with a modern installation substantially reducing the stress factor.
