Please note that you will be sharing with other guests coming to the lodge. If you are planning to drop a rental car at Hoedspruit Airport, please ensure that you arrive well before the flight arrival time as unfortunately the transfer vehicle cannot wait for late arrivals. The transfer time is approximately one hour.
Scheduled collection times from Hoedspruit are 11:20 and 13:20. Scheduled departure times from Simbavati are 09:30, 10:30 and 11:00. If you are arriving at a different time, then a private transfer can be arranged.
