With 3 other septuagenarians, tried just about everything, including a day lounging around camp, enjoying the quiet, the views, a wood stove, massage and good company. Had a fabulous group of interesting and mostly more experienced folk to share the whole fandango. Wonderful to have elders and kids in addition to the "campers." Guides were experts on the Fu, good trainers, attentive to safety and giving everyone a real sense of the beauties of the rivers. All the staff were attentive and eager to make the week a great time all round. Camp is well laid out, with plenty of amenities, plus the blessing of no light pollution from electric lights and no internet! The food was terrific - different cuisine every night based on the guides' roots. Even the rainy days made the rafting more exciting. What's not to love?!
