    Thonga Beach hotel is fantastic even when "off season" for diving. Lots of baby fish to sea whilst snorkelling, beach always gorgeous and very near the beautiful inland wetlands where there are lots of birds and hippos. Friendly staff explained lots about the area too.

    What is mentioned in your email should give you a good indication of what to bring. Don't forget sunscreen, a scarf or warm coat for the transfer as it is in a open vehicle.
