          Nous partons au Pinewood Beach resort au mois de mars. Nous avons quelques questions : - Nous faisons un safari de 3 jours durant notre séjour : auriez vous des conseils pratiques ? (équipements, vêtements, ect...) - le soir, est ce que le pantalon et chaussures fermées sont de rigueur au resto ? ou est ce que le bermuda, chemisette, tongues de soirée est toléré ? - Le spa est il accessible quand on veut gratuitement? On se doute bien que les massages sont payants mais les saunas, hammam, jacuzzi sont ils en accès libre ? Si non quels sont à peu près les tarifs? - La plage et la baignade sont ils facilement praticable ? et y'a t il intérêt à prendre masques et tuba pour faire un peu de plongée sur la plage ? - Avez- vous des excursions à nous conseiller en plus du safari ? - Quelle est la durée du transport Aéroport / Hôtel ? Enfin si vous avez des conseils ou des recommandations, nous sommes preneurs. Merci d'avance pour vos réponses Olivier
