Also hadn't bargained on there being a mouse (and or bat) squeaking loudly and pissing on my leg in the middle of the night. There was also the steady pitter patter of poops landing on the floor from a great height.
My pillow also had a very funny smell.
On the plus side there was hot water in the shower room (not sure if we knew how much of luxury this was.......) and box with approximately 500 condoms sitting on top of the loo.
After the night club finally gave up on the music, the chimps in the enclosure nearby started their morning chorus of screaming and yelling. So we gave up trying to sleep and got up to see the dawn over Lake Victoria.
It's hard to say whether I would recommend staying here - maybe on any other night of the week ie not a Friday, it may be quiet and peaceful, but not getting much sleep certainly clouded our view of the place.
We headed for breakfast, passing various animals in the sanctuary - including some giraffes.
Our first wildlife (ie actually wild) turned out to have arrived in Africa even later than us. A just born vervet monkey, with its mother licking the afterbirth from its head was sitting just beside the path from our banda to the cafe.
