Lovely campsite with clean ablutions. Far from the beach (no seaview). The people at Mbotyi River Lodge were very unhelpful and NOT accomodating towards the campers at all. We were not allowed to use any of the lodge's facilities (not even the use of the shop to buy ice, water etc). It states on the website that campers may use the facilities, but when we arrive we were told that it's only allowed during low season (which is not stated on the website). We packed up after 2 days and found accommodation elsewhere. We will definitely not be back!
