    We are considering this lodge for Late September early October in 2017. We will be coming off a 9 day Botswana safari ending in Kasane, so just want somewhere to "chill' in beautiful surroundings before we head onto Livingstone. How easy is it to get to from Kasane without a car? Do all rooms have views and seats outside ? Do you have coffee making facilities in the room?
