Just got back from a long weekend at Thornicroft and am really very happy with the experience. David Kelly is a top-notch manager and really great guy. All the staff were attentive and pleasant. The driving safaris in the park (which were included as part of our stay) were stupendous. Our guide, Rogers, is an ace. Great memories and very good value, compared with other places in the area. Highly recommended.
