    Nice location, basic accommodation. The room opens straight in to the main eating/lounging area so is a bit noisier than hoped. Reasonable price for Harare, and feels safe/secure.

    ... appreciation thrown in! With wild Mana Pools our next stop, we were guided by some great advice from a very experienced game hunter and wildlife guide, Bob Warren-Codrington, on what to expect on the next leg of our African Bush adventure. Thanks Dave and Richard for going the extra mile for us and helping COPK to live up to his nickname. Yes, the itinerary has again been changed!

    Cheers from the well rested and rejuvenated Kelly's, en route to Mana Pools.

    ... in a moving vehicle. My heart is thumping in my chest as my feet near-miss a hundred slippery rocks. At this time I have a thought- the same thought that got me off the mountain skiing, the same thought that got me through 6 months of chemotherapy and the same thought that's taken me through pretty much every awful event in my life: "Well, there's only one way you're getting out of this, so you'd better push on through." Back on flat ground ...
