After a bumpy road, arrived at the TWR. What a place! We were secretly hoping for a river lodge, but we got hill lodge n. 6, that meant 143 stairs up. The view from the room is exquisite, at this point the river lodge was forgotten. Rooms are clean, shower is basic, but it works.
Food was not superb, but we were never hungry.
The walks, trips with the jeep were much fun, and we saw quite some animals. This was definitely a stay to remember. It was like our own little paradise in the jungle.
The white crowned hornbills were a treat, sitting so close to our room.
