Allow yourself time to stroll thru the gardens while you enjoy your stay at this lovely resort. They offer a weekend package that is full board for a great price. They even have horse riding available. Inclusive in the package is a 30 minute boat ride on Lake Victoria. We had a couple of issues with our room, which effected our sleep. But when asking at the front desk if we would be able to delay our check out time in order to catch up on some lost sleep, they were quick to make amends. Instead of the 10 a.m. check out, we were moved to 3 p.m. The pool is Olympic size (I think) and can be crowded on the weekends. But if you know that in advance it shouldn't come as a surprise. Poolside food is expensive, but the beers are cold!
