          What would be the best way to get to this game reserve from Johannesburg airport? After our time at the game reserve we plan to go diving in Mozambique. Which airport would we take to get to Vilanculos? Do you see enough animals here or is it good to combine the Lions Valley Lodge with another game reserve?

          What is the best way to get to this Lodge from CapeTown? There will be 3 adults and a 13 year old girl. We don't want to drive. We will also need to get from the lodge to Johannesburg for our return flight to the US.
