          Situated inside Kruger, About 2.5 hrs drive from nelspruit airport. Very spacious rooms and nice food. Good arrangement for safari into the national park. On the negative, pretty long walk to the rooms, difficult for luggage, children and service.

          Hello, I was wondering about transport to and from the Lodge: we're thinking of visiting, and would be flying into Nelspruit, but then continuing our journey on via Maputo. Would we have to hire a car to get to and from the Lodge or are the reputable / affordable taxi services we could use? Thanks!
