          Hi. Your Lodge looks beautiful! We're planning a family trip in June / July 2016.( I like to plan ahead!) 2 Adults & 2 children 11 & 14. Do you think one of your self catering chalets would be suitable? We will hire a car from Durban - would you recommend a 4 WD to access your property? Would it be possible to give an approx. cost per night. Any other info you could provide would be very much appreciated. Kindest regards, Mel Manners
