    Great experience, but no choice of food - you get what is prepared. One meal was awful. Not enough food if you are a vegetarian. Nevertheless the experience was awesome which made up for the food. Thanks to the staff our visit was great.More

    Dear ohscrewit - Thanks for your question - no air conditioning (for environmental and logistical reasons) but all the Kwafubesi tents are carefully site for natural shade and designed for maximum airflow through the tent.
