At the bathing place, after so many years, wooden parts could be sandpapered and new varnish. Taps were loosely fitted

We enjoyed our stay at Bua river and they were very accomodating. My mother (in her late 60s) did not appreciate using a toilet outside her tent in the night which necessitated unlocking the tent padlocks without being able to turn on an electric light, but we being more used to camping found it easier. It would have been good to warn her about this in advance if at all possible. The lodge and the acomodation were far apart and our baby monitor did not reach, but the staff were able to provide dining in a small table set in a tree near our tent which was fabulous.
