    I have a reservation to stay at the lodge and want to fly into the local airport from Joburg. Can you recommend the closest airport to fly into? I do. It want to rent a car because I am from the USA and don't feel comfortable driving. Is there a shuttle service or transportation option to get guests from the airport to the simbambili game lodge? I have not been successful at locating anything on the internet.
