We had three very comfortable rooms, with everything we could need. We were well looked after by helpful and friendly staff. Everyone enjoyed themselves, the cooking was excellent - if a little excessive. Our guide was knowledgable and helpful and took us on exciting trips - lots of elephants, didn't see the chimpanzees, bird/croc-watching, and some went for successful fishing...
