Just across the hall from the kitchen is the lovely bathroom, here you can feel refreshed with the overhead shower or take a soothing bath after a day of strenuous walking.

Also close by is the wonderful Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre, an amazing attraction not only because you get to see so many endangered primates in this open-air park, but because you get to support an organisation dedicated to the rescuing and safety of humans' closest genetic relatives!
