As a seeker of points remote and uncrowded, Thunzi seemed like a good choice...and I must say I was correct! Hornbill is a perfect choice for those happy with self-catering. Given the location, it felt appropriate to rough it in that regard. The staff were gracious and the scenery stunning. Pooh to those who complain of mosquitos in other reviews... It's called nature!
