          Have looked at both the Umzolozolo Lodge and The Lions Valley Lodge and would like to book for a couple of nights. My husband is on crutches. would either of these lodges be suitable - are there many steps or much rough ground to be traversed? Or can you recommend somewhere more suitable?
