          We found the food actually quite good and tasty, with a good variety of different dishes appealing to different tastes, freshly prepared. Breakfast was also good, with a live station for omelettes.

          I want to stay here because it is close to the gate to Kruger Park... I just wanted to know which company did you use to do the safaris (i see many saying they used the Echo Africa)? Also how do you get to the gate if you did not come by car? does the hotel take you there? are there taxis?
