How fantastic that you were pampered explorers in the Raj Palace Resort (what an inviting name!). The buffets sounded divine, the welcome amazing, and so considerate the warm blankets for the safari and the fire upon your return. Too bad they couldn't drown out the wild wedding though I'm duly impressed by your sleeping abilities--such good travelers!

The hotel was excellent, and I highly recommend it; and we really didn't mind the wild wedding - it was quite fun to watch.
