          Visited the premises for buffet lunch. Great service. The food was nicely prepared. I was also there for a spa that my husband had booked for me. I was 6 months pregnant. It was so refreshing and relaxing . Ladies where professional.

          How is it best to arrive from the airport? Do you offer a shuttle bus? If so, what is the cost? My arrival time will be 18:35 on 4 November. On the morning of 5 November, I must either take a taxi to River Crossing Lodge or return to the airport. Which is the cheaper option? Thank you for your help with this. Sincerely, Lewis M. Brown
