          How is it best to arrive from the airport? Do you offer a shuttle bus? If so, what is the cost? My arrival time will be 18:35 on 4 November. On the morning of 5 November, I must either take a taxi to River Crossing Lodge or return to the airport. Which is the cheaper option? Thank you for your help with this. Sincerely, Lewis M. Brown
