This Lodge is located JUST outside Kruger Park. You sit on the veranda & in garden overlooking the Kruger Park. Elephants come up to the fence while you’re sipping a cocktail. Friendly, efficient staff & a great pool to relax in.

Hello I'm not sure if I am understanding correctly. Are you landing in Kruger at Skukuza? If so I don't think you would then want to drive out of the Park (to Rio Vista). It would make sense to rent the car at the... More
