This month we would like to introduce you to someone who has a more “behind the scenes” role. You may not meet her when you are at the lodge, and you may not even see her in action. But you would certainly notice her absence. Meet Naomi, our head of housekeeping, who makes sure that the lodge is always a clean and comfortable place where you can feel completely at home. Your fresh linens and spotless bathrooms are all expertly managed by her and her team. Here is a chance to learn more about her.
