Accommodation

 
The Swahili House
There was no hot water the entire time we were there. The worst thing about it was that they kept telling us how they were in the process of fixing it but it didn't get sorted. Also, the elevator in this place is either broken or non-existent - not a huge deal for us - but certainly for an older couple as the steps are incredibly high and numerous - the porter that carried our bags up just about had a heart attack! Finally, the service in the restaurant was hit-and-miss. In some ways the service in this hotel was kind of what we expected for all of Africa, but it's the fact that we were treated so well everywhere else made this place just feel very frustrating.
 
Olakira Camp
Really enjoyed the service especially at Olakira where we stayed for several days. They really went above and beyond to accommodate our dietary needs.
