We felt rested and settled after only the first night, it was so comfortable and relaxing. Loved the design and atmosphere, the striking sculptures, art work and the beautiful gardens with exotic resident birds. The staff were great - special thanks to Pa for his kindness. Would recommend the trips with Habib -he is an engaging tour guide and will look after you. His brother Charlie is a qualified bird guide and will show you a variety of habitats near to the hotel -we saw almost 100 species in 6 hours. Take the trip to Makasuto forest to the beautiful Mandina Lodge for the sunset river cruise and a very special wildlife encounter. Stayed towards the end of April with perfect weather and hope to return.
