Hi MimieW, Best you call Fairmont Zimbali Hotel 1st because some parts are under construction and not accessible, service is questionable to my experience. FYI Kruger National Park is 9 hours drive from Zimbali, best you book yourself in one of the Sandton Hotels, then take the hour drive to Kruger. Check bookings com for the best deals. Best of luck regards, Shreck1
