Safari Park is a lovely setting--I was there for work, and regretted not having more time to wander the grounds, just to take it in. It's really beautiful. And the room was nice, the staff were solicitious, the food was tasy etc. There's a reason they host so many functions here
But it feels as though they haven't quite caught onto this new internet thing. Making a reservation via email involved waiting days between replies, each reply from a different employee, none of whom are the stated owner of the account. And then when I arrived I was told I'd have to pay 2000 KSH a day extra to use the internet. Fortunately for me, it turned out that internet was included with the conference I was attending, but it struck me as ridiculous. And then wireless doesn't cover the whole room, was down one night, etc. etc. Speed was ok, though.
It's really a pleasant spot, and if they wanted to make a point of not offering internet, I could see that--you shouldn't vacation to Kenya to surf the web anyway. But for someone in my situation, traveling for work, I value a good connection, apparently rather more than the average Safari Park guest.
