Booked on a package deal which included a walking safari, boat trip, cultural dances, and elephant ride. The elephant washing comes free effectively. The hotel had very few guests there when we were present. You are picked up from the last bus stop - effectively the bus station - by the hotel vehicle. Reception staff were excellent. Spoke good English....

If you book a package you cannot choose your food. They seem to think westerners only want western food which is watery soup before every single meal, and the main is chips, rice, plus another form of carbohydrates, and some cold congealed custard for dessert. After our second day of this, we complained and were allowed to choose from the...
