PLEASE NOTE

These rates are to the non 4x4 pick up points for the lodge. From pickup point to lodge is 30 minutes. Please note transfer vehicles will wait for 15 minutes only for guests. If guests are not there within that time the transfer vehicle will leave. Another vehicle will be sent to collect guests when they arrive at the additional late/early transfer cost per pax.

  • These tariffs exclude the guide’s / driver accommodation should the transfer be late or early to the lodge and ideally we recommend an overnight stop to avoid missing any activity at the lodges. The overnight stop is NOT included
  • The tariffs are one way except where noted
  • The minimum charge for land transfers is the single rate x2 even if only 1 pax is travelling the charge will be calculated on 2 pax travelling
  • If a guest is travelling alone and other guests are booked on the same transfer, then the single supplement will be waivered. However if the guest ends up being the only person booked on the transfer due to other guests changes, then the single supplement charge will be incurred which is double the single rate
  • These nett rates include VAT where applicable
  • The vehicles are air conditioned except 4x4 vehicles which are open
  • Rates exclude Park entrance fees
  • The latest pick up time from Richards Bay is 15h30 - last available 4x4 transfer at Manguzi is 18h00 (extra cost)
  • These transfers are not exclusive - guests from our other lodges may join the transfer
  • All transfers need to be booked three days prior to travelling
  • All rates quoted are subject to change, without prior notice
  • Our standard cancellation policy applies to transfers
