    Hi, we are booked in here for a week in June after a week on Safari in Tanzania. Does the hotel provide beach towels? Trying to travel as light as possible so any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Yes, we provide you with beach towels in your room. And pool towels can be found at the pool.
