I want to stay here because it is close to the gate to Kruger Park...
I just wanted to know which company did you use to do the safaris (i see many saying they used the Echo Africa)? Also how do you get to the gate if you did not come by car? does the hotel take you there? are there taxis?
The lodge will arrange everything for you. However I still feel that to experience Kruger one must stay in the park there are many lodges within that cater for everything including game drives and pick you up at the airport. The area and country side around Kruger is also very beautiful so if you have time hiring a car would be advised
We used Echo Africa. They have their office at the Pestana lodge and pick you up as well as drop you off at the lodge. Very convenient. For the early starting safaris (start at 6:00 am) we got a breakfast package with us from the hotel. We were very pleased with the three different guides from Echo Africa. Very knowledgable and professional.
Hi Kiara A. Sorry about the late reply. We used Private Kruger Safaris based in Hazyview. Even though that is quite a way from this lodge they come and pick you up at the lodge at 5 am. Highly reccommend these guys. Great guides and very knowledgeable. A truly great experience.
