    Hi there I am looking at staying at the lodge for 7 nights next year. I've never been to South Africa and we will not be hiring a car; so please can i just check a few things: Is the closest airport to the lodge the George? I see that you offer a transfer service from the airport (which is great!), but is there accessible transport into the surrounding villages so that we can travel to surrounding attractions in the area? What would you recommend to do and see in the area? although the hotel looks AMAZING, i am concerned that it is quite secluded and away from civilization! and i like to explore and see things. I saw a customer wrote about a zip wire tour through the forest? is this something that can be booked once we arrive? Many thanks Rebecca
