          We will be staying at Fairlawns en route to a succession of safari lodges. We will be traveling light out of necessity so will not have with us the kind of elegant clothes that we would normally wear at such a lovely property. I am concerned we might feel out-of-place in the company of people staying there for special occasions (to whom we certainly don't want to present an eyesore). I looked at The Terrace's menu. Really good eats, but perhaps too ambitious for a family just off the plane from the US. Is simpler fare available, perhaps via room service? And is breakfast more casual?
