Just returned

We've just got back from one of our best holidays ever.

To sum up:

Hotel: Kairaba Beach - good food, lovely grounds and accommodation, great staff.

Weather: unbelievable - sunshine every day, hot but with a cooling breeze (hotter away from the sea on our trips).

Bumsters: - no problem; just smile and walk on. Much less hassle than any other 3rd world country I've visited.

Restaurants: Good - not much between the ones we went to (African Queen, Jo-Jo's, Green Mamba and Lebanese place next to Green Mamba). African Queen just about edged it on food. Liked the atmosphere and music at Jo-Jo's.

Trips: as stated elsewhere, Arch Tours are just brilliant. 'Kunta Kinte' trip was very good. '4-in-one' was fantastic.

Thanks to everyone who posted advice on this forum. It really helped to make our trip a success.

Nice one Alan. I sense a theme. Do some research, ask questions and go prepared = enjoyable holiday. No research, unprepared = may not enjoy it.

This site does work.
