This was my second trip to Kikambala in 2 years, again based at the Royal Reserve. This time I was with my son and two friends for part holiday, part working with a local nursery/primary school. We found the hotel to be an excellent base for our purposes - it's reasonably priced, clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly and efficient as always, and the food was really good (much better than last time). It was just the place to cool off and relax after working and chat to other charity workers and holidaymakers.
The hotel was also the most convenient one for us because it was within walking distance of the school and almost next door to the office of our friends Gerald, DJ, Moses and Isaac - the beach boys I had met the last time and kept in touch with. We relied on them for pretty well everything and they were brilliant: organising trips and transport to different places - supermarkets, shopping trips, football matches, holiday excursions; walking us to and from school, carting textbooks and other school stuff. They cooked for us in the village and took us dancing at the village pub. (Wow! How often would you get the chance to do that?) Thanks to them we had absolutely no problem or hassle the whole time we were there doing all the different things we were doing. Asante sana, boys.
So no complaints about the Royal Reserve - we will be staying there next time we are in Kikambala.
