It was cold, and foggy, and drizzly, and lush, beautiful, and green. We were lost among the trees, and it was wonderful.

There was zebra print and muesli, and crackling fires for the chilly evenings.

There was Tusker beer and old stone hideouts waiting for visitors.

There were grand verandas, courgette soup for 40, and elephant skulls guarding doorways.

There were wet treks to meetings, and steaming hot chocolate, and the best breakfast for miles…
