    Hi! Im planning to go in April, before to make the reservation we are studying 2 possibilities a) Traveling by car from Johannesburgo, and make a night some where in the middle. Its that Crazy and difficult? Some recommendation where to stay a night in our way to your Lodge? b) If we go by plane to Hoedspruit, can we just don't take any car and enjoy the place and make all the safaris with your activities? what about going back to Hoedspruit Airport? there is a service for it? Can we ask you for that service in that case? Thank you very much!!
