    Hello, I was wondering about transport to and from the Lodge: we're thinking of visiting, and would be flying into Nelspruit, but then continuing our journey on via Maputo. Would we have to hire a car to get to and from the Lodge or are the reputable / affordable taxi services we could use? Thanks!
