        We always had our own table, whether we ate outside or inside the dining room. The dining room and outdoor dining is absolutely stellar. Beautiful.

        We flew from Joburg to Hoedspreut Eastgate Airport and picked up a rental car from there. It takes two hours on terrible dust roads to get to the lodge.
