    We were able to relax and enjoy some much needed down time during our 5 weeks in Africa. Accommodations suited us well and would recommend this hotel for private or group travelers. It's a gated property that offers activities within the property.

    Hello, At Lake Duluti there are hardly any insects. But for good measure, insect repellents are provided in each room.

    Hello, Yes we do have fans in the room. It doesn't get too hot in November making it possible to stay in a room without a fan or a/c.
