I remember someone saying at the time that it was the same kind of bird as the character Zazu from the Disney movie, The Lion King, so I think your Red-billed hornbill suggestion is correct.

Agreed. They love to hang around the lodges and especially dining halls

I'd suggest this is a red-billed hornbill (Tockus erythrorhynchus). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-billed_... for more information. Let me know what you think....
