This was our second camp and it was perfect. The manager, Katie was absolutely wonderful. When one of our party was ill, she arranged for a boat to take him to the locum doctor. No fuss, just brilliant organisation. On our last day there, Katie organised a English cream tea, with scones etc. That evening we had a wonderful meal with her and Benny the chef did us proud. We had the odd visitor, but unfortunately it wasn't Dixon, but what wildlife did appear made up for not seeing him. The river was fairly low, so there was a slightly restricted view of the wildlife, but that didn't mar our enjoyment of the trips. This is a bird-fancier's paradise. One could sit at the bar area and watch the wildlife. A bit too hot for me to go on any walks, but our friends did and thoroughly enjoyed it.
