          Hi Great review, thanks! We're doing our research for next February, we stayed in Arathusa but have had elephant plains recommended, so was interested in your comments about flying into Arathusa. Did you book this yourself, or through an agent?any info would be much appreciated - we had a transfer from the airport & wished we'd looked into flying! Many Thanks Jan
