After a very lengthy travel ordeal involving 5 flights to arrive exhausted in Richards Bay, we were greeted at the airport by our smiling Serendipity Guest House host and driven the fairly short distance to our destination. A warm shower and a comfortable bed provided us with all that we needed to recharge our batteries and begin to enjoy discovering South Africa the next morning. Ours was a very clean, double bed room within the main part of a very large and uniquely designed home. The house was decorated with comfortable furniture in the common area, a beautiful dining room table and many intersting artifacts. The gardens that surround the house are very well cared for and the neighbourhood was quiet and very safe. Breakfast was simple but tasty and satisfied our needs exactly. Our hostess generously offered to have us accompany her to the shopping mall as she stocked up on groceries and we could shop for items that we may need for the remainder of our trip. As volunteers with Wildlife ACT headed to Tembe Elephant Park, we took advantage of the opportunity to purchase some comfort items for the next few weeks. Our host drove us back to the airport where we were scheduled to be picked up along with many other volunteers for placement at the various camps with Wildlife ACT connections and the adventure continued.

The only staff I had dealings with were the kitchen staff, who did their best, but can't make up for a lack of hospitality on the part of the owner/?manager? Even on arrival, a maid greeted me and showed me to my room. The WiFi is non-existent and only works, badly, in the common areas. Forget about it in your room. There is no tea/coffee facility in any room - only a rudimentary trolley in the common area. Who wants to have to make tea or coffee with no privacy after a long day's work, or when waking up in the morning? No fridge in any room either - need I say it? The flooring in the bathroom was cracked and lifting, and the towels and sheets are all brown, rough and uninviting. The fittings in the shower were cracked and dirty. There were fishmoths in the bath. When offered breakfast I explained clearly that I do not eat meat, and asked for eggs and tomato, yet I was served eggs, bacon and an awful looking sausage - and the cook seemed very confused when I asked for a clean plate with ONLY eggs and possibly some tomato on it. There is no fence around the property, which leaves a little doubt about safety (all the neighbouring properties had fences, security gates and in some cases, electric fencing)
